Fans of the great actor Bill Murray are in tears.

Murray almost committed suicide as a young comedian. In a 2014 interview that has just gone viral, the celebrity described his early years as a comedian playing in Chicago.

He claimed he “wasn’t very good” and had little “desire to stay alive” when he first began.

“I recall my first performance on stage; I was so horrible that I simply stepped out onto the street and began walking.”

After a few hours of traveling, he understood that he had gone the wrong way, not just in terms of where he would live but also in terms of his desire to survive.
