Created by Sammy Wegent, and from the minds behind live comedy juggernauts Mortified & Freestyle Love Supreme, Speechless shows off Silicon Valley's silly side by letting presenters live out their worst nightmare: giving a presentation with absolutely no preparation.The show puts entertainers, entrepreneurs, and audience members on the spot with just a PowerPoint deck full of images that they've never seen and a topic determined at random by a spinning wheel. These can be a TED talk, a new app being launched, even a wedding toast, and then presenters do their best to get through their talk, while attempting to leave the audience Speechless.
"At some point in their lives, most people have the "unprepared" dream. That's the one where you show up for the interview naked, can't tie your own shoelaces, or begin the presentation for the boss only to realize you don't have a clue what it's about. Sounds more like a nightmare than a dream, but Speechless takes this concept and turns it into entertainment." -Devon Holt, SF Weekly
