    Slides are a simple and powerful tool for visually structuring and organizing ideas, so it makes sense that people trying to communicate clearly and persuasively - and trying to make people laugh- would use PowerPoint (or Keynote or Google Slides) to handle a piece of the work so they can focus on being creative, charismatic, and most importantly - funny.
