Bill Murray Finally Comes Home in This Rare Second City Clip from 1980

Welcome to The Second City Archives, in which we post an exclusive clip each week of some of comedy’s biggest superstars performing early in their careers on the legendary Chicago stage. Second City has generously given us a glimpse into their extensive archive of live performances, and over the coming weeks we’ll be sharing some rare and retro comedy never before seen on the web.

Now that there’s officially a Bill Murray Christmas TV special in the works featuring stars like Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and George Clooney, here’s a look back at a rare Murray special from 1980 called Bill Murray Live from the Second City. In this clip from the special, Murray finally returns home to his parents after six months in Denver only to be overwhelmed with questions by his father (played by Bruce Jarchow).
