Legendary comedian Bill Cosby delivered the keynote address to the 2007 graduating class of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In his hilarious speech, Bill Cosby discusses the bravery, rather than “nerdiness,” of the successful students to pursue an education and see it through to the end, and relates personal experiences from his colorful life and career in entertainment.

In this simple but inspiring speech, Mr. Cosby, wearing a gray Carnegie Mellon University sweatsuit, talks about his personal successes and failures, including a notable success that he anticipated would be a failure.

After his 2007 CMU commencement speech, Bill Cosby was inspired to gift Carnegie Mellon University its first live mascot, a Scottish terrier named Scotty.
