Bill Murray had the most Bill Murray entrance on ‘The Late Show’

Well, that’s one way to do it.

In his last appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, actor and comedian Bill Murray—Letterman’s first guest and a Late Show regular over the years—had the difficult task of topping himself.

For his grand entrance, Murray went for something big but simple and effective. After Letterman called his name, Murray brought out a giant cake just so he could jump out of it like at a bachelor party.

For nearly anyone else, it would’ve been completely absurd, but for Murray, it’s par for the wacky course. And for these longtime friends, it was a fitting way to say goodbye—even if Murray wasn’t quite ready to do so yet.
