It's a spoof of a stereotypical TED talk. They all tend to follow that format, and the majority of them are similarly of zero intellectual value.
I didn't tip at Per Se either.

How would someone be expected to recognize that was the purpose?  Was the audience advised beforehand what to expect...and, even if so, what would induce the audience to be present?

It's a staged comedy sketch. The audience are actors.

The humor, if any, is elusive.

It's lampshading the silly little techniques that TED talks use. If think TED talks are annoying and overdone, you'll find it amusing. If not, then you probably won't.

It's hard to imagine why anyone would join an audience for TED talk(s), especially if they are like the video claims to suggest?

The visuals are hilarious enough, but the real gem is the commentator barely holding it together. Start it around 3:57:
