Stephen Colbert Gives Graduation Speech at Northwestern (Video)


Comedy Central star Stephen Colbert offered up some sage advice for the class of 2011 at Illinois' Northwestern University recently.

"Be great," he said, adding: "no pressure.” The Northwestern grad also poked fun at the school for some recent headlines about a class in which students witnessed a live sex demonstration. "Today I am fairly confident I'm me," he joked, referencing his television character, who at times seems a lot like the actual Stephen Colbert.

To see the entire speech, peppered with several nuggets of wisdom from the comic, watch the video below.
