…might just be the best speech anyone has ever delivered in an educational context. If you know Charlie Day (“a man who has made a living pretending to eat cat food”) in his role as Charlie Kelly in “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” you’ll be surprised how excellent he is at delivering a speech but also as a writer – assuming he wrote the speech himself. Charlie Day is the next Steve Jobs, I think.
Check out his full speech at his Alma Mater Merrimack College in May 2014. His speech begins at about 1:20 minutes, just skip the introduction:
If you aren’t familiar with Charlie Day’s work…well, get yourself some episodes of Sunny. May I suggest you start with an episode of the second, third or fourth season? The first season is really just a warm-up phase for the extremely entertaining episodes of the later series.
