LATE NIGHT

Bill Murray, dressed as Liberace, celebrates 20 years of 'Late Show'

August 30, 2013|By Meredith Blake

It's been 20 years and 3,901 episodes since "Late Show with David Letterman" premiered on CBS in 1993. To celebrate the milestone on Thursday, Letterman invited his very first guest, Bill Murray, whom he praised as "the gold standard in American comedy," back to the show. 

"Every film would be better if Bill was in it," the host said. Murray spent the next 15 minutes or so demonstrating why this was not mere hyperbole. Dressed as Liberace, he entered the stage via a white limousine. 

"I go over the top sometimes," Murray said. Case in point, a billboard he bought, theoretically as an anniversary gift for Letterman but featuring a giant portrait of himself.
