When he’s not cradling a tearful Will Ferrell in Elf, comedy legend Bob Newhart is stirring up laughs with his offbeat, deadpan stand-up routine. Famous for his relaxed delivery and subtle wit, the comic explores universal moments of the human experience and shines a light on the ridiculous. His routines are marked by clever reenactments of daily life and the peculiar things that all people do, but never talk about. Never relying on vulgarity, Newhart’s award-winning comedy sizes up the oddity of being human.

Wednesday 5/28. $39.50-89.50, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 East Main St. Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
