  • This is really exciting to me.

  • Bob Newhart.

  • Off the record, This is an hour long comedy concert, and it's kind of a special event.

  • Tell us, Explain to people what this is.

  • Well, when I when I made the button on mine the first album in 1960 we sent the tapes to Warner Brothers Records and they edit him and they would like Oh, there's a pause will pick that up And oh, there were about two seconds there.

  • We take that up so you know, it wasn't when I heard it.

  • It was like jarring to me.

  • But I wasn't about to complain because it was it was a huge hit, but I thought that if I ever get the chance, thio do it the way I heard it in my head of that's, you know, as a comedian, you could understand the processes are sometimes it is important or more important than that.

  • The words themselves eso eso show time approached me and this is 1995 and they said, What would you like to do?

  • And I said, I'd like to I'd like to rerecord hearing it the way I had heard and and so we recorded.

  • And this is the first time it's out digitally, which is it's just like a whole new world.

  • It isn't like the record business.

  • You don't go into a store and buy it and take it home or stealing.

  • And Richard Bryant space, Uh and, uh, you know, you just fall up in and the next thing you know it.

  • Zero in the house.

  • Yeah, it's streaming.

  • Well, this is This is it's great the way it's the way I heard it originally.

  • Yeah, you know, many I'm not the first person to make this point, obviously, but there's such a close connection between, uh, comedy and music rhythm.

  • And, um, I think you more than more than any other comic I can think of, always used the space is the way a really good musician, a jazz musician, would use pauses in spaces to help create the music.

  • And I believe that that's that's something you honed in on very earlier in your career, when everybody else was trying to fill the space with noise.

  • You would take these vory long pauses, little stammers, and it was very musical.

  • Well, yeah, I've always felt I felt three things I've felt.

  • Mathematics, music and comedy.

  • Somehow we're all intertwined.

  • I'm not sure exactly how and people used to say, You know, after this interview, I stammer.

  • I mean, that's the way I talked because people would say, Do you really stammer?

  • And I said, Yeah, because there have been there have been comedians who who stuttered, but they didn't really studied.

  • They only stuttered on stage.

  • And one of them was Joe Joe.

  • Fiscal.

  • You ever hear of Joe Frisco?

  • He's very funny.

  • I don't I don't know, Joe.

  • I didn't know about Joe Frisco.

  • He studied and they told the story about Joe Frisco.

  • He he was staying at this flophouse in New York, and he ran into a buddy of his who was even in worse shape financially than Joe was.

  • And Joe said, I'll tell you what, You can stay.

  • You can stay with me, but you got to climb up the fire escape.

  • You know, when the fire escapes were on the outside of the building.

  • Hey, because if they find out that that you stand there, they're gonna hit me with double occupancy.

  • So the guy said Joe.

  • Sure.

  • So he calls up the outside and he's in Joe's small apartment and the phone rings.

  • It's the clerk downstairs, and he said, Mr Mr Frisco, we know that you have a guest and we're going to charge you for double occupancy.

  • And Joe Frisco, who really stuttered, said, Oh, okay.

  • But since send up send send, send up another Gideon Bible, we lost sound.

  • I am themselves.

  • I can't hear.

  • I can't hear anything.

  • Can you hear me?

  • Yeah.

  • Good, good, Good.

  • There was a great moment there where we're doing this, obviously via Zoom.

  • And you told this punch line and I laughed really hard, but you couldn't hear me.

  • You couldn't hear me laughing.

  • And you thought that I just didn't like the joke and that you had bombed.

  • Is that true?

  • Which I've been through before, you know?

  • Yeah.

  • I've never experienced that, Bob, So I don't know what it's like, But you know what?

  • You know what I dislike?

  • What?

  • You hear the air conditioning?

  • Yes.

  • Well, I I'm quite familiar.

  • There are times you there's a phone ringing.

  • What?

  • Bob, you're not taking this interview very seriously.

  • You're clearly not taking This is a big deal to be on the Conan o Brien show, and you're treating me with contempt on the phone with, uh, But you did for a moment there we were talking on zoo.

  • I know men don't complement other men on their hair, but I like I like the way you're doing your hair.

  • Thank thank you.

  • You've always been a big supporter of my hair in my career, but somebody has.

  • Yeah.

  • Not so much my comedy, but you've always said the hair is good.

  • That z more important to me than the comedy.

  • Um, you must be very anxious to get out there and do stand up again.

  • I'm very anxious to get out of this interview.

  • That's it.

  • You've done nothing but abuse me.

  • I think I've been good to you.

  • I think I've been good to Jenny.

  • And how am I repaid with absolute scorn?

  • Uh, you got to check this out.

  • The hour long comedy concert, Bob Newhart.

  • They loved it.

  • So, Conan, it was low hanging fruit.

  • I mean, you could you couldn't avoid it.

  • You're saying that I leave myself open?

  • Maybe Ideo, maybe Ideo.

  • Well, Bob, I can't wait for this pandemic to be over.

  • You know, the last thing that happened, my last social engagement was my wife, Liz, and I were gonna have dinner with you and Jenny.

  • And it was the night that they shut down all the restaurants in L.

  • A.

  • And I've been suspicious ever since that you somehow you did something to get out of that engagement.

  • That's the excuse we used just on.

  • Guess what?

This is really exciting to me.
