Safeword is a long form improv troupe that creates stories and comedic scenes inspired by audience suggestions. Shows usually consist of one or two ‘slow’ scenes that last 10-15 minutes each. The group will often interrupt these longer monoscenes with shorter, more energetic, and often absurd scenes that illustrate points that might need some explaining.
