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.

Since 2013, Speechless has been selling out shows at comedy clubs and conferences all over the country and the world. Armed only with a laser pointer and a deck of random slides, presenters ranging from stand up comedians to software engineers put their talents to the test in the ultimate improvisational gauntlet--giving a presentation that they've never seen before. 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.

Fusing technology with comedy, Speechless is the entertainment experience for the Web 2.0 world.

With an opening set by Outside Dog. Hosted by Steve Ausburne.
