5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Weekend

Bob Newhart

Of the standup comics who started in the early 1960s, struck stardom in the late '60s and '70s, and had a hit sitcom in the '80s, we always knew that we could count on mild-mannered Bob Newhart to not be an awful creep. The 85-year-old accountant-turned-comic still hits the road playing straight man to the world's absurdities.

Bob Newhart performs at the Ovations Showroom of Wild Horse Pass, 5040 Wild Horse Pass Boulevard in Chandler, on Friday, December 5. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8. Tickets range from $45 to $99. For more info, visit Jose Gonzalez
