Are you sure?
Name a comedy sketch show that finds its roots from BYU. It’s now in its 10th season, featuring brand new cast members this year!
Do you know it yet? Maybe this will help.
They are the creators of some viral comedy sketches you may remember. Does the name Scott Sterling ring any bells? What about the worst doctor ever? If not, surely you have seen the one-millionth death!
You got it! It’s Studio C!
Studio C is a comedy sketch television show, similar to Saturday Night Live, that has been produced by BYUtv since 2012. Over the last 8 years, Studio C has shown over 130 episodes, gained over 2.3 million subscribers on YouTube and has had almost 2 billion total views on those videos.
Studio C’s sketches cover a humongous range of subjects. The original 10 cast members performed memorable sketches about anxious secret agents, diving national champions and even a quirky chef obsessed with bisque!
Now the question is: Why would we, the BYU College of Nursing, care? We aren’t necessarily the funniest college on campus (although if you look far enough back on our Instagram page, you might find some memes that will give you a good chuckle). Also, none of the cast members are College of Nursing alumnus, either. Why, then, are we writing about it?
Maybe you can find the answer in these videos:

Did you notice anything familiar? Anything you may have seen or maybe even worked in before?
The curtains must have given it away. The secret is out. Studio C crashed the NLC!
Since the Mary Jane Rawlinson Geertson Nursing Learning Center had its 4 million dollar renovation in 2014, the Studio C cast has visited us multiple times to film some of the memorable sketches we know and love. There might be some future episodes featuring our NLC as well. Make sure to keep your eyes glued to the screen to see how Studio C uses our facility next! Enjoy!
