Next Slide Please invites comedians to create and present PowerPoints about whatever they want. That could mean a data-driven ranking of the best Manhattan street corners for first date make-outs, pitches for start-up investment opportunities that are *probably* not scams, or a passionate defense of the 2003 Jessica Alba vehicle "Honey" (21% on Rotten Tomatoes).
Hosted by Reed Kavner and featured in The New York Times and Gothamist, Next Slide Please has been called “more entertaining than your last meeting,” which we admit is a pretty low bar but we’ll take it!
