We’re sure all of you have heard and know about TED talks. TED talks are a great source of learning. People from all around the world and various walks of life come to TED conferences and talk about their experiences and the life lessons they derived from them. Most TED talks are known to be very informative, or very inspiring, or both.   

However, this is not one of those.  A year ago, comedian Will Stephen delivered this talk titled, “How to sound smart in your TED talk” at TEDxNewYork. And it is a brilliant talk about absolutely nothing.

He starts off explaining them the idea behind his talk. He does gestures with this hands and adjusts his glasses just like other smart people delivering such talks do.

He interacts with the audience by asking them a question, and they respond by a show of hands. 

He even shows them numbers and statistics using pie charts and graphs.

But basically, he gives them nothing. Nada, Zip, Zilch. 

And how does he do that? Watch the video and find out for yourself.
