Bob Newhart celebrated his 84th birthday on September 5th. The comic genius is still going strong, he'll be back on the The Big Bang Theory this season and still performs live comedy.

Before he starred in two classic TV shows Newhart already was a great stand up comic. In fact his 1960 album The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart was a number one album and international bestseller. His style was less set-up punchline and more of a monologue style. Below are a few of his best bits. They are as funny today as they were 50 odd years ago. Enjoy!

Newhart will be at Grand Falls Casino in Larchwood, Iowa Saturday, October 19. Click here for ticket details.
