WATCH:Jimmy Fallon Gives Commencement Speech at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS

Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon is known for making us all laugh from SNL and The Tonight Show, but when he gave a surprise commencement speech for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Graduation he went a little more serious, while still making jokes to make the crowd laugh.


Earlier this year, Stoneman Douglas suffered a horrible tragedy where a past student murdered 17 students and teachers. It was one of the deadliest school shooting in the US.


It was a somber graduation knowing that not everyone who was supposed to walk across that stage was there, but when Fallon showed up it seemed like the room lit up. Fallon has been a huge supporter of the students and their fight for gun reform since the massacre. 


Fallon praised the students for their fight for change, how they've taken a tragedy and done more than just sulk in it, and the strength and courage each of them have. He told them he doesn't have to tell them to change the world or make a difference because they already are.


He managed to get in some jokes to put a smile on everyone's face. You can see the teachers and faculty in the background laughing and recording the speech on their phones.


Watch the full speech below. Thanks, Jimmy and we'll always be #MSDStrong.
