You might be thinking a tour of your municipality's sewer system, or watching the international weather channel, but Sammy Wegent is not like you. Wegent, a senior game writer at Zynga in San Francisco, was sitting in a meeting watching a PowerPoint presentation one of the estimated 1. And then there is the screen. I thought, This is so ripe for satire. Satire, as George S.

He wanted to bring the comedy to the office. Speechless, the PowerPoint improv show that grew out of that brainstorm, was originally just an evening of audience participation comedy in which the tech-heavy crowd could join in the merriment by suggesting absurd products and brand names for a quartet of presenters comedians and volunteers to pitch.
People's ability to think on their feet was challenged when they would click the pointer and get a picture of a mushroom cloud or Tyler Perry's Madea character. It was a good way to blow off steam for a bunch of people who had seen one too many PowerPoint presentations, probably that day, and the show was an immediate hit. Call it nerd karaoke.
Think like a coder.
But Wegent who developed Speechless with co-producers Scott Lifton and Anthony Veneziale thought improv comedy had lessons for the working world. We are sitting in a white conference room in the Zynga offices because the lunch area, designed to resemble an old-fashioned penny arcade with literal bells and whistles, was too damn noisy. We all have something to say, we all have great stories, we're all pretty funny in some capacity, even if it's just with one person.
How do we harness that?
