Rapid Fire Theatre presents TEDxRFT

Many say that presenting a TED talk for hundreds of keen intellectual minds takes years of research, hundreds of hours of rehearsal time and a fancy post-secondary education. We disagree.

Watch Julian Faid and Matt Schuurman make up completely improvised TED Talks using slides they’ve never seen based on random topics from the audience. Not only will you not learn anything, you’ll forget things you thought you’d cherish forever!

“TED talks are ripe for parody, and we take that up a notch by making them up on the spot.”

TEDxRFT was born at the 2014 BONFIRE Festival of new improv ideas at Rapid Fire Theatre. Since then, Julian and Matt have refined their format and toured it across North America.

“Building these slide decks for each other isn’t easy—the internet gives us plenty to work with.”

Previous TEDxRFT topics have included: Looking Forward to Looking Back, I Can’t and So Can’t You, The Little You Inside You and many more. What will the next topics be during show? There’s only one way to find out! December 12, 2020 7:30 p.m.
