Conan to address Dartmouth grads
Late night comedian Conan O’Brien will be giving the commencement speech at this year’s Dartmouth’s graduation on June 12.
O’Brien, who’s actually a Harvard graduate, joked about the honor, according to a press release issued by the school.
“I was honored to be asked to give the commencement address to Dartmouth’s graduating class of 2011, until I found out their first choice was Pauly D,” said O’Brien.
The comedian, who got his start at the Harvard Lampoon, will also receive an honorary degree at the graduation.
After graduating, O’Brien went to Los Angeles where he became a writer for Not Necessarily the News on HBO.
O’Brien eventually went on to host Late Night, succeeding David Letterman, The Tonight Show, succeeding Jay Leno, and currently hosts his own late night show Conan on TBS.
