Twitter in Focus: Bob Newharton August 29, 2012 at 12:01 am
Welcome to Twitter in Focus, where media comes to die! Today, another comedy legend, Bob Newhart gets analyzed! He’s got a button down mind, let’s see what his Twitter account is like.
May 20th: “After a 50 year career, people do occasionally recognize me. The men think I’m an old army buddy and the women think I’m their first husband”
Old army buddy? Well, I guess you do sort of look like Hogan from Hogan’s Heroes.
May 24th: “TWITTER BY SHAKESPEARE 2B OR NOT 2B, THAT IS THE ?? WHETHER TIS NOBLER IN THE MIND TO SUFFER THE SLINGS & ARROWS OF OUTRAGEOUS 4 TUNE…”
I like Twitter Shakespeare. It’ll mean the play will be over in less than ten seconds.
May 25th: “Peter Sellers was probably the best film comedian ever. He was a complicated man haunted by powerful demons but an absolute comic genius.”
May 27th: “Hallmark Channel BNS Marathon — http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/the-bob-newhart-show-memorial-day-weekend-marathon-the-show-holds-up-says-star.html …”
A comedy classic.
June 12th: “Stand-up comedy is not for the faint of heart or small of ego”
Understand Michael Richards? This is why you failed at it. Well, that and what you said.
C’mon, Judd, put Bob in one of your movies. Anyone has to be better than Katherine Heigl.
Lookin’ good, Bob. I always thought your show about the comic book creator was way underrated.
June 19th: “On stage at the Broad http://twitpic.com/9y36hz”
I’d totally go see Bob in concert.
July 9th: “Performing standup is a narcotic that I need-even if I do it a few times a year. Traveling is inconvenient but worth it to make people laugh”
You should do your next show on the Internet, Bob. Then you never have to travel!
August 17th: “Upcoming BN Performance 9/15/12 Carmel, CA Sunset Center”
When does Bob come to the East Coast? We need to see him in Atlantic City!
August 23rd: “When people tell me jokes, they tell the dirtiest joke imaginable. They’ll preface it by saying they’ll have to clean it up for me – Mr. PG”
So wait. Does that mean it’s cleaned up for you, but still sounds dirty? Or they completely edit the joke?
Okay, let’s rate Bob’s tweets. He’s got a good mix of behind-the-scenes and plugs. Needs to have more updates though. I give him a 5 for Mustness, a 7 for Insanity and a 10 for Style. That’s an overall score of 7.3. Follow the legend. Follow Bob.
