Bill Murray made a suitably nutty entrance - popping out of a giant cake - for his appearance on David Letterman's penultimate Late Show.

The 64-year-old actor first appearance on the Late Show with Letterman 33 years ago, prior to his huge post-Ghostbusters stardom.

He was the first celebrity to sit on the chair for an interview that went down in television history.

Murray told Letterman during the interview: “You got out of Indianapolis and didn’t look back. I’m just waiting for the other shoe to fall on you, man, and I want to be there when it hits the floor! I had a chance to strangle Richard Nixon and I didn’t—and I regret it!”

Exact details of his last ever episode are remaining under lock and key, but Murray featured in his second last on Tuesday night. 

He dived out of a giant cake and then spread icing across the hands and faces of the show's band members and some audience members with one lady getting both cake and a kiss on the lips.

CBS has confirmed the finale will be "an hour filled with surprises and memorable highlights."

In the run-up to Thursday's episode, Letterman has recruited A-listers across all disciples for a trip down memory lane, including Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.
