Have you ever heard of Ignite? It's basically a community event where anyone can speak for 5 minutes about any topic, accompanied by a 20-slide presentation. Ignite speakers talk about business ideas, community issues, harrowing tales of adventure, or just talk about their favorite hobbies. They've become popular enough that most cities that have some sort of higher learning institution usually host an Ignite event.
And while that's fun and interesting in and of itself, the best part of Ignite has to be Slide Roulette. Same concept as a typical 5-minute Ignite speech, except with one awesome twist: you don't get to choose your slideshow. For five minutes, you stand in front of a crowd, doing your best to riff off someone else's Ignite presentation, of which every slide is as much a surprise to you as it is to the audience. Some people naturally freeze up, some flounder their way through, and a lucky few are able to play the crowd like a mandolin, quickly and skillfully repurposing slideshows into standup comedy routines.
