image for Ronnie admits he liked Newhart better

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ron Reagan, son of former President Ronald Reagan, showed up at a local comedy club only a few days after his father's burial and began to perform telephone-conversation comedy routines made popular once by Bob Newhart.

"Ron always wanted to do stand-up," said his new press agent, "but his dad wouldn't let him."

It is never too late for rebellion, according to Ron, who idolized Bob Newhart secretly since his youth.

"Being the son of a President who once was a performer, it was impossible for Ronnie to say in public that he wanted to be Bob Newhart's son," the press agent said.

Reagan did an hour of famous Newhart routines, many of which were fake phone call conversations, the ones Newhart was known for in his early days of stand-up.

"He does Newhart well," said the comedy club owner. "And this audience is so young they don't remember the Newhart skits."

There was no comment from Mr. Newhart, who was never asked for a comment.
