Performing at “Speechless” at Joe’s Pub in NYC!
“Speechless” brings improvisors, tech industry gods, and everyday joes and challenges them with giving a presentation on the fly with a powerpoint deck they are seeing with the audience for the first time. It was Sarah’s first time doing improv publicly, and despite it being terrifying, she loved getting to share the stage with the amazing talents of Tony Award winner James Monroe Iglehart, Upright Citizens Brigade’s Brian Fountain, and writer/comedian Nathan Phillips!

Guest Appearing in “Speechless” in NYC!
(Warning: Sarah will not be performing any poetry tonight! It’s an entirely different kind of show!)
Created by Sammy Wegent, and from the minds behind live comedy juggernauts Mortified & Freestyle Love Supreme, Speechless shows off Silicon Valley’s silly side by letting presenters live out their worst nightmare: giving a presentation with absolutely no preparation.The show puts entertainers, entrepreneurs, and audience members on the spot with just a PowerPoint deck full of images that they’ve never seen and a topic determined at random by a spinning wheel. These can be a TED talk, a new app being launched, even a wedding toast, and then presenters do their best to get through their talk, while attempting to leave the audience Speechless.
The show is open to the public and tickets are available here!
