Amy Poehler has been tapped to give Harvard's class day speech this year, which is technically not the same as the commencement address, but is part of a perhaps more noble comedic tradition: Seth MacFarlane (2006), Sacha Baron Cohen (in character as Ali G in 2004), Al Franken (2002), and Conan O'Brien (2000) have all delivered the same address.
