ABOUT THE TEAMS:
Savage is our name and savage is our approach to sketch comedy: we attack what’s funny in a scene with ferocity, tenacity, and an understanding of the rule of 3’s. We’re a house sketch team at the Peoples Improv Theater, where we have created and performed new material every month as part of the PIT’s Super Sketch Tuesday program since April 2018.
