The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart is a 1960 live album by comedian Bob Newhart. Recorded at the Tidelands Club in Houston, Texas, the debut album by Newhart was number one on the Billboard pop album chart and won Album of the Year at the 1961 Grammy Awards, where Newhart was named Best New Artist. It was the first comedy album to win Album of the Year and the only time a comedian had won Best New Artist.

Newhart came to prominence in 1960 when his album of comedic monologues, The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart, became a worldwide bestseller and reached number one on the Billboard pop album chart; it remains the 20th-best selling comedy album in history. The follow-up album, The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back!, was also a success, and the two albums held the Billboard number one and number two spots simultaneously

Though not the first standup comedian to release a live recording, Bob Newhart was probably the first to really capture the public's attention, thanks to this debut. Of the six pieces included on this album, five of them are set up as part of a conversation (usually by phone), something that became Newhart's trademark.

The star of The Bob Newhart Show? The standup comedian on the phone all the time? I guess if you go further back and say that guy who went to St. Ignatius Prep with me, my theory falls apart, but my point has been made: not only has Bob been an institution in the world of comedy for more than a quarter century at this point, his style and personae endure and remain as funny as ever. Today we look back at the 1960 comedy album, The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart, an album that changed not only the life of the guy who recorded it, but the very face of comedy and the way the world experienced.

In 1960, Bob Newhart's debut album chased Elvis Presley from the No. 1 spot on its way to earning a Grammy for Album of the Year. Most folks know Newhart today as a sitcom actor, so his routine, where he plays straight man to himself, as one half of imaginary phone conversations, and his hilariously dead-pan delivery, are worth checking out for anyone interested in the evolution of stand-up comedy.
