Hank Azaria Gives Hilarious Speech As Simpsons Characters

simpsons podcast

Without the talented Hank Azaria as part of its main cast, who knows if The Simpsons would have gone on to become the critical and commercial success we know it to be. He’s voiced so many beloved characters, including the likes of Chief Wiggum, Moe, Apu, Comic Book Guy, Carl, Snake, even Frank Grimes! So you can imagine how excited the students of Tufts University were to learn that Azaria would be making the commencement speech at this year’s graduation.


Azaria, who was one of six individuals awarded honorary degrees at the ceremony, attended Tufts University where he graduated in the Class of ’87.

Safe to say though, Hank’s speech stole the show when he decided to break out some of his classic Simpsons voices to help get his message across.

Some of the best advice came from one, Chief Wiggum:

“Kids, you didn’t hear this from me, but if a cop even thinks you’re going to throw up in their backseat, they will immediately let you go. No crime is worth having to clean yack out of a seatbelt hole.”
