Studio C is a sketch comedy television show produced in Utah by BYUtv. The show traces its roots to the BYU sketch comedy troupe Divine Comedy, which some of the Studio C cast members are current or former members of. With the recent addition of three new members, they are no longer all from Divine Comedy. The show aims to produce clean, family-oriented comedy for a national audience, shedding the BYU-oriented humor of Divine Comedy. The show was originally planned to be named Common Room until being changed to its current name, a reference to the studio in the BYU Broadcasting Building where the show is primarily filmed in front of a live audience.[1][2] They have also created, "Leave No Fan Behind" and "Christmas Special Live Event", which are both live YouTube events. This lets fans watch the cast play games and act out skits, as well as ask questions on Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube, for them to answer during the events.

Studio C currently has a YouTube channel with over 2 million subscribers and more than a billion total views.[3] Their channel features many skits from the show, along with a few YouTube exclusives. Studio C's most popular video is "Top Soccer Shootout Ever With Scott Sterling", which currently has over 60 million views on YouTube. Studio C posts new videos on YouTube every Tuesday and Friday.[4]

In August 2018, it was confirmed that Studio C will have a 10th season but the 10 original cast members would be leaving after the 9th season to create and star together in a new family-comedy show.[5] With the chance for Fielding, Johnson, and Pence to audition and secure a spot for the show, the 10th season will feature all new cast members. Casting and auditions are currently in progress for actors and writers.

Franny is accompanied by his lute-playing assistant, played by Jeremy Warner. Debuted Season 1, Episode 9. Franny has appeared in three sketches.[11]

Shoulder Angel/Devil
Matt Meese plays a life-sized shoulder angel. Humor results from the fact that Shoulder Angel feels the need to physically and awkwardly climb to a perch upon the right shoulder of the body of each character for which he attempts to act as a conscience. His catchphrase is "Poof!" which he says upon entering the scene. A variant on this skit is Shoulder Devil, also played by Meese, a life-sized, obese devil who also climbs the body of each character he attempts to tempt. In several sketches, Divine Comedy cast member McKay Lindsey also appears as a shoulder angel, appearing alongside Matt Meese. Debuted Season 1, Episode 2. Shoulder Angel and Shoulder Devil have appeared in seven sketches.[15]

The Smiths
A family from rural Nebraska, Mr. Smith played by Jason Gray, Mrs. Smith played by Mallory Everton, Johnny Smith played by James Perry, and Martha May Smith played by Whitney Call, star in 2 videos in the style of Wes Anderson movies. They are about Mr. Smith's evil brother Barnaby Smith played by Matt Meese along with three other evil brothers played by Adam Berg, Stacey Harkey and Jeremy Warner trying to steal the family farm because they got jobs that they thought meant farmer ( ant farm seller, Red Sox farm team and law firm).

Spencer has appeared in four sketches.[16]

Star Feraldo
Whitney Call plays an over-the-top diva whose success comes from appearing as an extra in hit movies. Her comedy comes from her personality, her poor vocabulary, and her refusal to do many everyday things. Her catchphrase is "Ah Nah! I don't do mornings!" There have been three Star Feraldo sketches.

Susan Weebers
Played by Natalie Madsen, Susan (or Susie) Weebers is a twelve-year-old girl that runs a vlog called "Beauty Tips With Susan Weebers". She has a shifting, ad lib jingle.

Texas Hold'em
The Texas Hold'em Poker Championship is a popular poker tournament starring Jason Gray, Mallory Everton, Matt Meese, Jeremy Warner, and Adam Berg with Whitney Call as the commentator and Stephen Meek as the dealer. Each competitor maintains a poker face, but viewers hear what they are thinking. Jason is playing for enough money to buy a kidney but loses and ends up with monkey kidneys which later explodes. Mallory is cocky and wins originally, only to buy a solid gold boat and must pay off her debt. Matt has no idea how to play poker and does what Mallory does to give the illusion that he does but knows how to play later. Jeremy constantly freaks out and eventually dies of panic. Jeremy's apprentice is Adam, who never looks at his cards and spills Jeremy's ashes over the table. There have been two Texas Hold'em sketches.

Tongue-twisters
A sketch where members of the cast attempt to perform very long tongue-twister. If any of the cast make a mistake, the sketch is immediately restarted. Each tongue-twister has a letter that they alliterate. The first one was d, the second was r and w, the third s, and the fourth "b". Recurring elements include Stacey Harkey eating food during the sketch and Mallory Everton appearing suddenly from an unexpected place. Adam Berg does not participate in the tongue-twister but is the victim of some form of slapstick comedy from something done by Jason Gray. However, in the third tongue-twister, Jason was the victim of the slapstick comedy from something done by Matt, Adam, and Stacey. Debuted Season 1, Episode 4. There have been four tongue-twister sketches.[17]

V.I.S.C.I.P.A.M. (Video Instruction Series Can Inform People About Men)
