The 53-year-old comic-and-actor was left devastated when his sister-in-law Kate Spadedied in an apparent suicide on Tuesday (05.06.18) but he pressed on with his comedy gig at the Brea Improv Comedy Club in Brea, California, on Friday (08.06.18) because he didn't want to let down his fans.
Bourdain killed himself in France on Friday, while Spade killed herself in NY earlier in the week.

Police said the death was not suspicious. The housekeeper had arrived for work that day discovered her body.
Dermot Shea NYPD Chief of Detectives told reporters that the note supports the theory that the cause of death was suicide. This is not your fault. "We were together for 35 years". In 2002, they told Vanity Fair magazine how they had met as university students in Phoenix, Arizona, while working at the same clothing store. "Nope. Nope. Nope", Ms Delaney explained, noting how none of the bags appealed to her daughter's "style".
Elle still has the earmuffs and her mom has two Kate Spade handbags, which she plans to pass on to her.
However, a source close to the family told People that Ms Saffo has always been estranged from her designer sister. Last month, Kate Spade posted a 9 per cent drop in same-store sales, sending shares of Tapestry falling more than 12 per cent.
"We walk in. I show her the white [bags]".
"I will say this was not unexpected by me. There were personal demons she was battling", Andy Spade said.
Kate, née Katherine Noel Brosnahan, founded her namesake label with her husband Andy Spade in 1993.
"There was no indication and no warning that she would do this".
After several attempts she said she gave up. "I'm sorry that some don't understand it", she wrote.
She also claimed Spade made her promise to attend her funeral and that she was fixated with Robin Williams' death in 2014.
The letter has gone viral, with thousands of people sharing it on social media. She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, amusing as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known. "The first Kate Spade item that she would call hers".
"Kate, I'm sorry that we could not bottle that up for you".
"Katy at my book signing".
Alongside a photograph of himself and Kate - who was married to his brother Andy Spade - at a family gathering over the festive period, he wrote: "Fuzzy picture but i love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos". So pretty. I don't think everyone knew how f - king amusing she was. "Try to hang on". I'm sorry that we could not gather every smile that you put on a humans face, whether it was because they just found the most loveliest [sic] brooch for their wedding day, the most exquisite pair of earrings to wear on their Graduation Day, or even the most coziest [sic] pair of earmuffs to wear around Florida ... "She was so sharp and quick on her feet", he captioned it.
"My husband would laugh as we laid there in the bed, me jumping with excitement, in anticipation of her and I getting matching bags the next morning", the mother remembered.
"I still cant believe it", he continued.
David Spade was spotted in Los Angeles where he was being consoled by a friend following the tragic news. But since Kate had already fully sold the company, she did not see a penny from that sale. "We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very hard time".
