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 NYC's FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME, 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, an infomercial, 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.

Speechless has been growing from the monthly comedy/tech industry show almost 2 years ago to launching shows in NYC and LA, performing in huge conferences like GOOGLE I/O, being featured in Newsweek, and The Wall St Journal, doing various corporate training events from NY to India, & all over the world for clients such as Google, IDEO, and The Gates Foundation. $15 All Ages
