Chris Pratt pals around with Harvard students at Hasty Pudding event

Actor Chris Pratt embraced the wacky shenanigans of the Harvard University drama group on Friday (06Feb15) as he was honored as the 2015 Hasty Pudding Man of the Year.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star donned a sleek black tuxedo for the bash at the school's Cambridge, Massachusetts campus, where he was roasted by members of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals club.


Pratt joined in the fun by donning a sequined bra over his suit and showing off his lap dancing skills at the request of a student dressed in drag.


He also channeled his Parks and Recreation character Andy Dwyer's alter ego, Johnny Karate, and happily chopped slabs of wood with his hands and his head.


Speaking at the event, Pratt said, "I'm just having the best time. This has been a truly remarkable day."


The actor spent the earlier part of his day greeting kids at Boston's Christopher's Haven children's cancer facility after losing a Super Bowl wager with his fellow Marvel movie superhero Chris Evans.


Pratt was feted a week after his Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler received a one-of-a-kind Massachusetts homecoming when she was honored as the 2015 Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year.
