Fri 10/28: Bill Murray: Mark Twain Prize (PBS)
This has really been Bill Murray’s year. But perhaps, more likely, every year is? In any case 2016 has seen Murray help open his son’s restaurant, launch a clothing line, see his beloved Chicago Cubs get into the World Series, all capped off by winning the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. By all accounts the Kennedy Center celebration for the actor was a hilarious spectacle, and PBS had cameras there to share it with the world. Expect appearances by an impressive roster of Murray’s collaborators and friends like David Letterman, who managed to get himself back into a suit for the occasion.
