Speechless Live!

There are 350 PowerPoint presentations given every second around the world. But none quite like this. Speechless shows off our 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 virtual 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.

“I think this show started as an interesting study of technology and our relationship to that technology,” says producer Lifton. “As its evolved, however, it seems its becoming more a celebration of the human contact part of technology.”
