Stephen Colbert has become the newest professional funny person to deliver a commencement address this graduation season. He’s preceded by the likes of Conan O’Brien, Amy Poehler and Fred Armisen. It all went down earlier today at Chicago’s respected Northwestern University.
The speech began in typical Colbert fashion, according to TribLocal: “Thanks to you, the class of 2011. You are what some have called the greatest generation, not many but some, so far just me. I’m counting on you to not make me look like an idiot by saying it,” Colbert said. “So be great, no pressure.”
