FebruMurray Of The Day: NYC Cabbie

In addition to flying the FebruMurray flag during each episode of the podcast, we’re also going to attempt to highlight a Bill Murray SNL sketch here on the site for you to watch and enjoy. So do that…

This isn’t a laugh-out-loud sketch, just a great character piece with top notch performances by Bill Murray as his Honker character (this time as a cabbie) and Dana Carvey as a stockbroker/part-time writer whose “everyday” stories aren’t even close to as interesting as his cabbies reclaimed prostitute filled life.

This is the kind of weird, semi-experimental performance piece that the show doesn’t do all that often anymore. Mike O’Brien’s occasional contributions probably come the closest to this kind of thing in tone, I wish I knew who wrote this.
