Biography

An effortlessly funny performer with a knack for playing easily confused sidekicks, Bill Daily rose to fame with two perennially popular television series, "I Dream of Jeannie" (NBC, 1965-1970) and "The Bob Newhart Show" (CBS, 1972-78). In both cases, Daily regularly stole scenes from his leading men and ladies, a practice he had been perfecting since his early days on the Midwestern nightclub circuit and later in Chicago area TV. Daily's brand of humor never wore thin, and he enjoyed steady work in television until the late 1990s, when he retired from acting. However, his two best roles remained in the public eye thanks to reruns, which ensured him a lasting legacy for many years.
