We expect a lot from the leaders of big tech companies. They should give us great products, dazzling presentations, and well-timed laugh lines. But sometimes these guys give such a performance that you just have to sit back and scratch your head. You can see why they're businessmen and not actors. But don't tell them that. Here are some videos to prove that point.

Known for his on-stage antics, Steve Ballmer is a rather extreme example of a businessman gone wild. Perhaps he is the greatest actor known to man. Perhaps he’s just crazy. Either way, this dude should
probably just stick to frightening the bejeezus out of people in the boardroom.
Larry Ellison is a fascinating
figure. His life outside of Oracle is rich (in every sense) and full. He sails (in a little race called “America’s Cup”), flies his own private jet and owns cars
that make me weep just reading their names. But Mr. Ellison on stage is not what you’d call “compelling”. Imagine this guy on “Law & Order”?
He’d be the reason the show finally gets cancelled.
