What We Do: 

We love to make you laugh! We play short-form comedy improv games. 3-5 minute games based on whatever you, the audience, wish to see! We take your suggestions and make up scenes within the rules of each game. These games were made popular by the show "Whose Line It Anyway?". We perform at our regular and special private shows. We are also available for workshops.


A History:

Say What? was founded in Wichita, KS, in 2006 by Sevans Martinez and Sarah Kallail. Their love for improv and the lack of comedy groups in the area led to the birth of Say What? After a year of successful shows, Sevans moved to New York City to pursue her theatrical endeavors.

In 2011, Sevans fell back in love with improv and felt the need to create her own content and bring performance short-form improv back to NYC. Using the Say What? format she renamed and rebranded the new Say What? NYC. Quickly casting some of the best comics in and around New York, Say What? NYC was ready to bring their brand of comedy to the people performing consistently at various venues throughout New York City. With an ever-growing audience, Say What? NYC's quest for a suitable venue has led them to their new home, Murphy's Tavern located in the pulse of New York City.


 This rotating cast of extremely talented individuals will excite, entertain and astonish you! Come see why we are NYC's premier short-form comedy improv group!!!


Past venues of Say What? NYC: Pit Loft, Parkside Lounge, Bar 9, Blarney Stone, St. Pat's Bar and Grill
