Billy Murray Crashed a Bachelor Party, Gives Everyone the Greatest Gift

When Bill Murray isn’t acting (so basically every day) he’s crashing everything from weddings to kickball games. Over Memorial Day weekend in Charleston, South Carolina, Murray crashed another event. A bachelor party. Well, okay, he didn’t so much as crash it as he politely declined an invitation and then changed his mind.

Over Memorial Day weekend, 20 of my buddies from Boston College got together in Charleston for our friend EJ’s bachelor party. At one point during dinner at a steakhouse, one guy goes to the bathroom downstairs and sees Bill Murray sitting with some people with a fishing vest on. We talked to the waiter to see if we could send him some drinks, to which Bill declined. One of my buddies then went down and asked if he’d come up and say a few words for EJ and got a “No thanks.” My buddy comes back up dejected and tells us it’s not going to happen. Two minutes later, Bill fucking Murray walks into the room and gives this speech.

The speech he gave was actually really good. Especially the beginning, “You know how funerals aren’t for the dead but for the living?”

He says he has a lot of experience in giving these but did he come up with this one off the top of his head or does Bill Murray stand in front of his mirror every night perfecting speeches like this in hopes that one day he’d be able to crash the perfect bachelor party to give it? Because that’s what I do. Now if only someone would invite me to something. :(

I HATE the fact that Bill Murray likes Letterman “the prick.” I saw Murray on a British talk show and he didn’t do any “schtick” and it was SO amazing. He acted like a person, not a persona. Our TV is too stupid for that.
