What’s Your Safe Word? 
Presented by Joe’s Pub at The Public
Artist-ambassadors from Joe’s Pub at The Public bring their unconventional and inimitable comedic customs to The Kennedy Center. Through raucous mélanges of music and comedy, a few of NYC’s favorite downtown stars share stories that delight heart and mind, while blazing new trails in American art. Featuring Justin Vivian Bond (“The best cabaret artist of [their] generation”—The New Yorker), Ike Ufomadu ("I would not miss anything by Ikechukwu Ufomadu"—Time Out), Erin Markey (“An alt-cabaret star with swaggering confidence and off-kilter sense of humor”—The New York Times), Tori Scott (“Garland for the Grindr era”—Broadway World), and more!

This performance contains strong language and is recommended for mature audiences.

This is a FREE event. Free tickets, up to two tickets per person in line, will be distributed beginning at 9:30 p.m., in the Nations Gallery.
