In 2010, Jimmy Tingle was chosen to give the Commencement address in front of thousands of people at Harvard. He’d just received his Masters Degree in Public Administration. Being that he was in the midst of many great academic minds, Tingle felt he should explain himself. “I’m a comedian by profession and have traveled all over the world performing stand-up comedy,” he said. “I don’t want to brag, but two years ago I performed in Europe. I’d just like to say excellent country!” He punctuated it with an enthusiastic thumbs-up gesture.

As the students, families and faculty erupted with laughter, Tingle went on to explain, “People asked me all year why would a comedian want to go to The Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. I told them: ‘the same reason all of you wanted to go to Harvard… We got in!”

Yes, there was that. But also, as a political humorist he wanted to dive deeper into those murky waters of politics.jtingle_humorforhumanity
