As you watch this Jim Carrey celebratory commencement speech, prepare to post your responses to these four questions:
How does the humor early in the speech rely on the audience’s recognition of certain elements of society: agricultural companies, belief systems, automobiles, etc.?
How does he “connect” with an audience that is largely a minimum of 2 decades younger?
How does his speech discuss both our reality and our perceived reality as it can relate to the first speech in the course about how we “write our own narratives of fear”?
Why is he both funny and philosophical in his approach?
