SAFEWORD

SafeWord small logo

MTV's SafeWord is a new comedy show where famous friends become frenemies through a series of fun and daring games. Hosted by Terrence J, each celebrity is paired with our "Safety Crew" of comedians who help push their opponent out of their comfort zone. The only thing that can stop the humiliation is to use their "safeword".
