Speechless is a live show/corporate training phenomenon that puts presenters on stage to deliver a PowerPoint presentation without any knowledge of the slides or decks.
Watch your favorite tech industry gods and comedians turn improvised presentations into a competitive showdown! Each presenter will be assigned a topic at random: TED Talk, Startup Pitch, even a self help seminar. The audience chooses the name of the talk, and then presenters do their best to get through their talk, while attempting to leave the audience Speechless.
Fusing technology with top notch talent, Speechless is the comedy show for the Web 2.0 world.

There are 350 PowerPoint presentations given every second around the world. But none quite like this.
Speechless shows off Silicon Valley's silly side by letting presenters live out their worst nightmare: giving a presentation with absolutely no preparation.
Created by Sammy Wegent and produced by the brains behind Mortified SF and The Freeze, Speechless puts entertainers, entrepreneurs, and audience members on the spot with nothing more than a stage, a microphone and a PowerPoint deck full of images that they've never seen.
A spinning wheel determines at random what kind of talk they have to give — it can be a TED Talk, a new app being launched, a quarterly report, even a wedding toast — and then our presenters do the best job they can to try to get through the show while attempting to leave the audience Speechless.
