Visiting Bob Newhart reflects on Lucy's legacy
Comedy legend Bob Newhart will bring his unique brand of deadpan humor to Jamestown Saturday as a featured performer at this year's Lucy Town Half Marathon and 5K Weekend. Newhart, who starred in two long-running TV sitcoms, credits Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz for revolutionizing television comedy. Ball is a native of Jamestown, where the Lucy Desi Museum & Center for Comedy is now located.
WBFO's Brian Meyer chatted with Newhart about the local visit and his storied career.
