Conan at Stuy High

Could you imagine one of the funniest guys of our time speaking at your high school graduation? Stuyvesant High School in NYC had Conan O'Brien as commencement speaker. He's not even the most famous commencement speaker they've had. Bill Clinton spoke there in 2002. Watch Conan's speech here (part I, II).

Urban Eola take :: Stuyvesant High School, located in Battery Park City near the World Trade Center site, is one of the best high schools in the nation. It's buildings look like a college. The land that it's built on must be worth a fortune as it's on the Hudson River overlooking the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and across the water, Jersey City. I know this because I used to run by it a couple times a week last summer. Famous alumni include Lucy Liu, Paul Reiser, Tim Robbins and Frank McCourt taught there for 20 years.

Urban Eola double take :: Conan O'Brien is one of my top 2 funniest people in the world next to Sacha Baron Cohen aka Ali G (check out his version of a graduation speech at Harvard in 2004).
