Comedians, actors, and musicians are given a challenge: improvise a coherent presentation based on a set of slides that they have never seen before. All slides are taken from actual presentations given at business meetings and classrooms, but put together in bizarre and unlikely arrangements.
How do you move from a slide depicting the annual increase in fertilizer production in Turkmenistan to a slide analyzing gender dynamics in Frasier? WE DON'T KNOW EITHER. But we intend to find out.
Host Nat Towsen (Esquire, UCB) and musician/deckmeister Darren Solomon unite with one purpose in mind: to bring you the best presentation-software-based live comedy experience ANYWHERE.
PLUS: Actual scientist Paula Croxson will have their ACTUAL LEGIT presentation “improved” before their very eyes by one of our guest improvisers! You won't want to miss it!
Scott Rogowsky (host of HQ Trivia)
Jess Salomon (Just for Laughs)
Rojo Perez (CONAN, MTV's Decoded)
Milly Tamarez (MTV, Flexx)
