Know karaoke? Right. This is like that, except instead of music you’ll be making up a 2-minute presentation on a random topic, while 10 completely random slides we found on the Internet auto-advance.

Can you keep it together and give a presentation worthy of a TED Talk? It’s a wonderful night of absurdity and participatory comedy. No experience required.

Doors at 6pm; presentations kick off at 7PM
