Studio C is a sketch comedy show produced by BYUtv created by Jared Shores and Matt Meese. One of the major differences from other contemporary comedy shows is that the comedy is intended to be family-safe, focusing on wordplay and absurdist situational comedy with little to no fanservice or swearing. The cast members are all current or former members of the Divine Comeday troupe which is an on-campus sketch comedy show by BYU students. The title refers to the actual studio where the show is filmed.The show began in 2012, and is beginning its 5th season in 2014. It airs on BYUtv, a television station operated by Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, but it reaches a much wider audience on YouTube.
Achievements in Ignorance: Matt has no idea how to play poker and yet he makes it to the final four in a huge tournament in "Poker Face." If he wasn't using Uno cards, he might have gotten lucky enough to win too.
The Butler Did It: Jason tries (and fails) to invoke this trope in "Blame it on the Butler"
Butt Monkey: Adam in the two tongue twister skits, "Dana's Dead" and "Robbing Roger". In one Jason spits water in his face repeatedly, in the other Jason throws goop and feathers in his face repeatedly.
In "Kid's School Photo Banned" he gets sent through the ringer again, this time because he didn't look awful in his school photo
Gambit Pileup: In the "Death Bed Repentance" skit, the Livingstone family (a mafia family) and Jose Delgado (the mafia boss who should be dead, and who disguised as a delivery man who Mallory paid to deliver her candy tombstone) pull this off to one another, despite their confession (of not having much time to live) becoming more repetitive and unrealistic as the sketch goes on
"D&D Revenge", both sides (the guys and Carly) did a great deal of preparation when they meet again
Grammar Nazi: Captain Literally is a superhero variant, he is not the only one...
Good Angel, Bad Angel: Both have showed up in the Shoulder Angel sketches, although only once in the same skit.
And it seems that Shoulder Angels sometimes need an angel of their own too.
"The Truth About Running" turns running into a dangerous activity like drugs and alcoholism.
Mona Lisa Smile: It turns out that Lisa was just really bad at posing, so the famous smile was the best daVinci could get out of her.
Murphy's Bullet: In “Shooting Booth,” a ditzy girl manages to hit Matt in the same spot on his hand three times with a BB gun. Subverted, as it is strongly implied that she did it on purpose to get back at Matt for scamming her son.
Taken Up to Eleven in "Cowboys," where two cowboys can't hit each other no matter how close together they get.
The Man on a ledge sketch, where the reason everyone's acting as if the man played by Matt is about to jump off a building isn't because he's sitting on a ledge, but because he's about to eat an Arby's melt.
Token Minority: Stacey (the black guy) and Jeremy (the Ambiguously Brown guy). The group takes advantage of their skin colors as much as possible. Jeremy has played characters that were hispanic, Native American, and Indian. Stacey has played every black character in a spoof, even if they are female, such as Calpurnia or Rue.
The Unsmile: There's a reason the Mona Lisa looks the way she does.
The Vamp: Carlie in the "Dungeons and Dragons" skit, besides being an experienced player in that game, she also used her feminine charm to manipulate her cousin's friends to give her their strongest equipment
