Andy Samberg speaks to Harvard grads (VIDEO)

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

“Saturday Night Live” and “Lonely Island” comedian spoke at Harvard’s Class Day ceremonies yesterday. Among his speech: A Mark Wahlberg, Mark Zuckerberg and Nicolas Cage impressions, and gave some tips:

“2012 is a great time to be graduating from college,” Andy told the kids, who will get their diplomas today. “Sure, the job market’s a little slow. Health care and Social Security will evaporate in five years. And you’ll have to work until you’re 80 to support your 110-year old parents who will live forever thanks to nano-technology … but that doesn’t matter.”

But he added some encouraging words:

“You know it’s hard to know where life will take you from here. What adventures you’ll have, what sitcoms you’ll write for. But my advice to you is simple: RELAX, DUDE! You just finished college at Harvard. You worked so hard. Trust me, you’re going to kill it. I went to Santa Cruz then transferred to film school, and I’m RICH!”
