Comedy on Vinyl Podcast Episode 148 – Rob Newhart



It’s not often you get to talk to someone about playing their own father in a movie.  In 1992, that’s exactly what Rob did, for a cameo in “Heart and Souls.”  We discuss how that came about this week, as big fans of his dad, but we also discuss his own introduction to comedy by the likes of Richard Pryor and George Carlin, the former passed down from his father.  The album we’re holding isn’t discussed in this episode, but we are holding it for a reason – it has the first recorded mention of Rob’s name, in track one of side 2, in which Bob talks about becoming a father.
