A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Studio C is a comedy sketch YouTube channel with no swearing and just a little snark. The skits and parodies have a Saturday Night Live vibe -- but without SNL's raunchy humor. Studio C's cast of more than a dozen actors perform parodies of popular movies, workplace faux pas, awkward dating experiences, and more. Some skits touch on religious topics that may not be interesting to all viewers (Studio C is reportedly backed by the religious-based Brigham Young University), but most are generally non-controversial and appropriate for older tweens and teens.

What's the story?
Watch STUDIO C and you can expect to see silly skits about dating (I Love Two People), awkward office moments (Awkward Question and Answer Game), and film parodies (The Hunger Games Musical: Mockingjay Parody Peeta's Song). Studio C also does some live broadcasts and collaborations with other YouTubers. Some sketches touch on family and religious topics (Mormon Misunderstanding).
Is it any good?
This very popular comedy skit YouTube channel has more than one billion likes, and its humor is smart, sassy, and sometimes even hilarious. The actors in the Studio C troupe have great chemistry, and their sketches fill a need for parents and teens who want laughs without the crassness of some YouTube comedians. In some skits, the religious underpinnings are more prominent than in others, such as one sketch that pokes fun at non-Mormons' erroneous stereotypes of Mormons. But overall, Studio C is just clean humor and easy laughs for fun's sake.
