This is Lewis Black’s speech at UC San Diego’s Marshall College commencement ceremony in 2013. There are a few take aways from this speech; but I believe the most important take away is “your sense of humor will be your life preserver.” I believe this to be true for college graduates. It’s funny. Life is funny. Learning to laugh at yourself is a personality trait that will keep you sane while applying for jobs after graduation. Learning to laugh at yourself and along with others is the simplest joy that we can experience. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
