I just caught the last episode of The Conan O’Brien Show, which ended with an honestly expressed speech from Conan O’Brien, one that took me by complete surprise! His commencement worthy farewell focuses on the youngsters, whom he instructs “to not be cynical,” and also advises that being kind and working hard will lead to amazing things after he chokes up.

First of all, the guy has had an exceptional life — so the cynic in me says, well, I’m kind, I work hard, where is my show, but mostly, I was pleasantly surprised that a comedian who has such a tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic, guarded performance style warns to stay away from cynicism. Very cool.
