Catch this new hit show before it goes to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! Performers improvise an absurd, bad-idea TED-style talk from a "broken" teleprompter. Each time it goes blank, they must continue the satirical presentation until the script reappears. This is an outrageous comedy obstacle course laden with hilarious challenges and surprises. A sold-out hit at this year´s San Francisco Sketchfest and Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the show soon departs for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. How much fun can be had with a supposedly faulty teleprompter? A lot, it turns out. Not for the easily offended. www.promptertalks.tumblr.com Twitter: @PrompterTalks
