PPTK: A brand new comedy show powered by PowerPoint (actually Google Slides).
PowerPoint Karaoke is the show where the everything is made up, the slides are nonsense and the presenters don’t know what they’re talking about.
It’s different from your meetings at work though because PPTK is fun, funny, and all about audience participation.
Presenters get slides they’ve never seen before and 5 minutes to do their thing, like:
Running for President by giving everyone a kitten
Selling an underwater phone to mermaids
Pitching Hollywood execs a movie called Ah Boys to Manatees
Best of all, audiences get to decide and suggest what speakers talk about. And, if you’re feeling particularly brave, you can volunteer also to be a speak.
Come watch our madcap comedy presentation show and never look at slide decks again. PPT! PPT! PPT!

The Double Bill opens with an hour of excellent improv by the best female improvisers in Singapore. Starting first are improv Ladyjammers – Grace, Kayla, Umarani, Su Phine and Yun Qing – bringing a blockbuster surprise, followed by brilliant Steph Chan whose standup will leave you in stitches!

Mirroring the UK’s ‘Would I Lie to You’, two pan-improv community teams will face-off as they try to guess if the other is telling truths or lies. It’ll be a hilarious battle of wits as panellists struggle to distinguish moments of honesty from rants of yarn-spinning!

Are you spontaneous? Living on the edge? Are you habitually unprepared but excited about the possibilities on the other side? Or just anxious?
We celebrate the new year with an open format at dink. Bring us your most out-there ideas – sing a song about nowhere – show the poems you're sure are your most deranged (and brilliant!) – act out the scenarios that can only be devised in the moment. Creativity comes from plans, mislaid.
This edition will feature improv groups from Singapore. Audience participation is encouraged.
Yun Qing runs a bunch of improv-related websites, including a blog about improv called "aboutimprov.com". She's a busybody who enjoys listing improv shows even before they're publicly announced.
