TV Star Charlie Day Makes an Awesome Commencement Speech at His Alma-Mater, Right Here in MA!

With graduation season upon us, it seems as if the new trend for college graduations is getting extremely famous figures to speak to the graduates.

Jay Leno, Conan, Andy Samberg and many others have been known to speak at commencements across the country and now Charlie Day, star of FX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia  is joining the ranks.

Merrimack College in North Andover, MA jumped on the bandwagon this year by inviting its distinguished alum, Day, to speak at its commencement this past weekend.

If you’ve never seen the show before, It’s Always Sunny…is known for its wacky, quirky and egotistical characters and its crude humor.

If anyone can speak to college life and its students, it’s Day. He touched on several subjects about college life that had the students cracking up such as dorm life, the party scene and classes.

On a more reflective side, Day speaks to a crucial decision he had to make right after college: to move to NYC to pursue a career in acting, or accept a job offer from Fideltiy Investments. Needless to say, he took the risk and moved to the Big City and the rest is comedy history.

Day details the struggles he faced as a starving actor living in New York and claims that it was the best decision he ever made. His themes of not being afraid to fail and to create your own opportunities really stuck with the students.

This speech might take the cake as the best commencement speech of the year!
