Odd. I thought both were long dead.

I wonder if he still works as a driving instructor.

Stop it!

One tweet justifies a green light?! Damnit, Fark moderators, you had one job, ONE FARKING JOB!

I would've loved to have seen Rickles and Carlin in an argument or roast though. That would've been the Louis-Ali of the comedy world!

I heard Bob Newhart started working blue. Terrible thing.

Don Rickles is so ugly he had to sneak up on his mother to breast-feed...
His wife is so ugly a rapist made her put the mask on...
His children were born so ugly the doctor slapped him...

Nope, Rickles did a great Comedians in Cars episode recently, and Newhart did some Big Bang Theory episodes recently

/didn't RTFA, but it's probably a troll - Rickles and Newhart have been best friends forever

He really shouldn't have tried robbing that bank.

Yes, but he did it all via a one sided phone conversation so it KILLED!

Frankly, he's one of the few comedians who is just as funny today as when he first started, and his routines hold up so much better than almost all of his contemporaries, whose work is too tied to the moment or a specific audience (I'm looking at you, Lenny Bruce, Cheech and Chong, and pre-mid-80s Carlin).

His stuff is great.  

I recall watching Carson and he was talking about how Rickles, Newhart and himself are all friends (iirc either Don or Bob was the guest). Anyway Carson said that everyone would always ask how much trouble Rickles would get the 3 of them into when they went out. Carson said that Rickles was never the trouble and that it was Newhart because he would be taken as serious when he was joking around and nobody could tell.

CSB:

Within the past few years, I was able to see both of them perform at a local Indian casino.

/Separate occasions.

Weird. I can read all of someone's tweets, see all their pictures, but try to see who they're following without an account and that's a no?

Last I saw of him was on Craig Ferguson a couple years ago.  He was pretty funny then.

/Newhart did a good job on Big Bang Theory recently.

Both these men are national treasures. Which means they're old and haven't been busted picking up transformer hookers.

There are some great clips on YT between Rickles and Carson; also, look up either one of them on the Dean Martin Roasts - I still don't know who cracked Dean up more, Rickles, Newhart or Foster Brooks.

//last of their kind
/today's comedians can't hold a match to them, let alone a candle

the stars of the past knew they came on the talk shows to entertain the audience, today's stars feel that they need to educate, teach, preach whatever their cause of the month is and/or brag how much better they are then the lowly people in the audience. iirc Carson got fed up in the later years with the stars only wanting to come on when they had something to promote.

Oh, NO! God forbid people have different taste in comedy! I must be some kind of scumbag if I don't like Don farking Rickles.

Then again, this is Fark, and Rickles is the king of insults. No wonder he's God here.

I can't imagine Bob Newhart heckling anyone...he's too nice.  (I think the only time I've seen him mean
was when Sheldon Cooper kept begging him, "Please tell me I'm annoying!" and Newhart (as
"Professor Proton") said, "Okay...YOU'RE ANNOYING!")

Subby here.  When I saw Bob Newhart needle Don Rickles about Emmy counts, I really though Mr. Warmth would immediately rise to the bait and eviscerate his old buddy, resulting in an octogenarian knock-down drag-out.  So I raced to post the link, and I'm as disappointed as anyone else that there's been no response from him....

So you are saying that Bob delivered a knock out blow with one punch.
