Bill Murray channels Liberace for 20th Anniversary of 'The Late Show'
On Aug. 30, 1993, Bill Murray was the first guest to ever appear on Late Show with David Letterman. And tonight, Murray is back (and more glamorous than ever) when he hits the Late Show stage with a Liberace-inspired persona.
To help Letterman celebrate his 20 years at CBS, Murray prepares the grandest of entrances, complete with a white vintage Rolls-Royce, a toy poodle, and even a cape. And when Letterman claims he didn’t know Murray had a dog, the comedian remains in character and replies, “I had to get something that went with this outfit.”
In addition to Murray’s entrance, the 20th anniversary show will feature a billboard Murray readied for the occasion and a time capsule full of “artifacts,” according to a press release.
Watch Murray’s entrance below:
The 20th anniversary episode of Late Show with David Letterman airs tonight at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
