Charlie Day’s Merrimack College Commencement Address

Charlie Day’s Merrimack College Commencement Address

Actor, producer and screenwriter Charlie Day, a 1998 graduate of Merrimack College, delivered the keynote address at Merrimack’s 64th undergraduate commencement ceremony.

He is best known for work on the hit sitcom “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” which is on track to be one of the longest running sitcoms of all time. His commencement address at his alma mater offers various life lessons based on experiences from his own life. Beneath all of the humor are some important life lessons about taking risks, success and failure, and overcoming fear. Some of the best takeaways for marketers:

  • “You cannot succeed without the risk of failure”
  • “You cannot have a voice without the risk of criticism.”
  • “You don’t have to be fearless, just don’t let fear stop you.”
