This annual Penguicon event was originally inspired by GoH Sumana Harihareswara's Powerpoint Karaoke, and now she's here to do it with us! Volunteers pick a slide deck they've never seen before from a list of titles, and improvise a comedic or serious presentation for up to 5 minutes. You don't have to stick to the slides, as they're just a prop! Other audience members can improv, too, during each follow-up Q&A. As improvisations accumulate, we can build off each others' topics and Q&A sessions. Come play with us!
