Once upon a time, a holiday variety special hosted by Bill Murray would have been a star-studded live affair airing on a major television network. As a sign of changing times and tastes, A Very Murray Christmas is heading straight to Netflix and it looks like it captures the kind of melancholy and dryly funny humor that infect so many of us during the more festive months of the year.
After a series of brief teasers, the first actual trailer for A Very Murray Christmas has arrived and it feels far different than what we were expecting. What initially looked like it was going to be a riff on kitschy Christmas specials of old now appears to be very much a project of late-era Bill Murray: the comedy is only matched by loneliness, sadness, and sense of detachment. But if there’s one thing we know, it’s that few people are capable of mining comedy from those concepts quite like Murray.
So grab some eggnog, load it up with the alcohol of your choice, and watch the A Very Murray Christmas trailer after the jump.
