Troy Conrad's newest creation! Top comedians use a teleprompter to deliver a TED Talk-style presentation. When the teleprompter unexpectedly freezes, the performer must rely on their ability to improvise and continue the talk just like they are an expert on their subject until the prompter comes back on. It's improv, it's stand-up, it's storytelling, and it's a hell of a lot of fun with a supposedly "broken" teleprompter.

She has not only appeared on "The Tonight Show" nine times, but was also the only female comic to appear on the last two of Johnny Carson´s "Tonight Show Anniversary" shows. Cathy has had her own HBO "One Night Stand" comedy special and was awarded the American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand Up Comic. WEBSITE | | BOOK
