SNL featured player to Annenberg seniors: “Be prepared to work hard and pay your dues.”

I’ve mentioned Vanessa Bayer C’04 on this blog before, and the most recent Gazette includes a profile of the new SNL performer.

Now, you can also watch her speech from the Annenberg School for Communication’s graduation ceremony on May 15. Check out the video below to see Bayer discuss her unsuccessful a cappella auditions, her first meeting with Saturday Night Live‘s Lorne Michaels, and her dad’s favorite joke: “We sent her to an Ivy League school, and now she’s a comedian!” Vanessa even whips out her Miley Cyrus impression, which has become a staple on SNL.
