Speechless shows off Silicon Valley’s silly side by letting presenters live out their worst nightmare: giving a presentation with absolutely no preparation.
Speechless puts entertainers, entrepreneurs, and audience members on the spot with nothing more than a stage, a laser pointer, 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 — a TED Talk, an app launch, a quarterly report, even a wedding toast — and then our presenters do their best try get through their presentation while attempting to leave the audience Speechless.
Created by Sammy Wegent and produced by the brains behind Mortified SF and The Freeze, Speechless launched in March of 2013 and has been entertaining sold out crowds in San Francisco ever since. Speechless has been showcased at comedy festivals including SF Sketchfest and the San Francisco Improv Festival and has entertained and trained some of Silicon Valley’s most innovative companies including Google and IDEO.
