Sintesi dell'editore

In Hi Bob!, American icon Bob Newhart gets together one-on-one with a handpicked cohort of luminaries in the world of entertainment, whom he happens to be friends with. Bob gets deep with each performer about their aspirations, their careers, how they got started, and how they grew to be where they are today. They make TV shows, movies, or albums, but they all like telling stories.   

Hi Bob! combines different conversations into themes, covering topics like creativity or failure, while weaving in never-before-heard personal anecdotes among accomplished, famous friends.   

Enjoy!   

Guests: Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Conan O'Brien, and Sarah Silverman.   

Foreword by Marc Maron.

really well edited, funny, sincere

great behind the scenes stories and banter from all participants led by bob and perhaps overall slightly skewed toward yesteryear. but great editing makes it feel like a big group convo with archival performances dropped seamlessly into the main narrative. charming, authentic, funny, insightful, warm, great.

Some great Newhart comedy clips!

I wish there had more Newhart and much less of the seven very boring narrators. But there were enough Newhart clips to keep me interested. I cannot believe he is 89 years old. Nevertheless, it was a worthwhile freebie.

Perfect

As a longtime fan of Bob, it was fun to listen to the conversations. I wish it had been longer!

Lots of vintage audio clips included

The conversations between Newhart and his friends are nice. But what I really enjoyed were the old clips that were included. It was so much fun hearing Newhart talk about his long time best friend Don Rickles, and then hearing a clip of Rickles on the Johnny Carson show, or doing his act in Vegas.

It doesn’t stop there, there were also clips from Jack Benny, Newhart’s comedy album from 1960, and clips from his two TV shows.

A bit slow in some sections perhaps, but overall a thoughtfully produced Audible Original.

Leaves You Wanting More

Bob Newhart is a living legend and the reverence he is treated by the people he interviews is great to hear. The stories are great and the unique editing makes it an easy listen. I took it in in one sitting and couldn't believe I'd been listing for three-and-a-half hours plus when it ended. Hoping for more "Hi Bob!"!

Won me over!

I was never a Newhart TV fan, but I found this series of conversations charming. It was also great to get the insider story from several of yesterday's and today's top comedians.

Okay conversation, but I was expecting more.

There were several times when Bob was speaking, or trying to finish a thought, when others spoke over him. I guess I had expected more of Bob ...and less of others trying to get their experience worked into this story.

This could have been so great.

Everything about this could have been extraordinary, if they’d only just let us listen to the entire conversations, one after the other. Instead of all that chopping and changing. It felt like a really long trailer for another show.

Such a pity.

Unfunny

What is this supposed to be? Very little Bob Newhart just lots of other people talking about how they come to know him. Not amusing at all.

Great to “ talk/listen” to Bob & friends for 3 hrs and a bit

I thought it was amazing, all except what I can only imagine was the routine that didn’t finish with wrap-up or punchline....the charity/emcee skimming scan at end must have been a bit-gone-bad.
