Bob Newhart Button Down Concert

Included on the disc is an interview with Bob Newhart. Why does he look so different in the documentary setting than he does during his stage performance?

Newhart claims his routines are so appealing because the audience becomes engaged trying to guess what was said during the unheard portion of the conversation. Do you think he is right? How can you tell if you have guessed correctly? How does the comedian build clues into the dialogue of the routine?
