Speak easy

Battle among hundreds of other contestants to find who has the sharpest wit and the quickest tongue to become the best orator of the series.

Contestants are given words or topics and 100 seconds to weave them into a convincing story to appease the crowd below.

After each round, the crowd vote off the weakest speakers until just one remains. As the series progresses, the best of the best are pitched against each other until just one winner emerges.

The format is innovative and fun as well as being low-cost and easy to produce; it uses a small studio and many episodes can be filmed back-to-back in a day.
