A former advertising copywriter, Bob Newhart spent his spare time at the company entertaining a co-worker with telephone calls about absurd situations, which the pair would record and send to radio stations as audition tapes. Whilst his co-worker soon ended his involvement, Bob kept up the activity and eventually one of his tapes was passed to Warner Brothers Records. They signed him in 1959 and suggested he expand the material into a stand-up routine, which was subsequently recorded at the Tidelands Club in Houston, Texas. An instant smash in the US, the album topped the US charts and earned Bob the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and Best New Artist.
