"Studio LOL is exactly where you want to send [your kids]. The husband and wife owners/instructors, Katy and Ryan Chase, remind me of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, if Bennifer were still under 30 and passionate about improv games, comedy rules, and teaching children to listen while having a blast. Watching these two at work in a colorful, bright studio with inspirational quotes about the importance of laughter and courage dotting the walls, I was also reminded that learning can be fun and funny. The class of 10 that I got to witness certainly seemed to feel that way, raucously laughing during a series of guided improvisational games. The guidance is the key, with Katy "freezing" her young students to underscore a comedy principle she wants them to learn. Whether your child wants to be the next Nickelodeon star or just a little less shy at recess, these classes are invaluable. The fine-tuning of listening skills that this kind of "work" demands can't help but serve them as students, and - more importantly for my money - as people. Keep your eye on Studio LOL. Their students are already dominating the commercial world with upwards of 12 of their kids appearing in those highly watchable AT&T spots, and also because Katy and Ryan have that thing that Hollywood loves, real talent, integrity, a lack of cynicism, and charismatic dimples all around. Love them, love their school."

"Best Comedy School for Kids" -LA Weekly
"Do you have a budding Belushi in the family? A potential Poehler? Studio LOL is where kids can learn the art of improv comedy through such games as 'The BFF Game Show' and 'World's Worst Birthday.' It's run by husband-and-wife actors Katy and Ryan Chase — a cuter, fresher-faced pair you will not find. They have just the right mix of enthusiasm and encouragement to bring out kids' inner hams, even with the shy ones. 'Students are praised for being their most authentic self and for saying exactly what pops into their heads without thinking or overanalyzing,' Katy says. 'The wonderful thing about improv is that, unlike math, there are no wrong answers.' Like the kid who once deadpanned onstage, 'Dad, we had to watch the puberty video at school. All I gotta say is, I'm scarred for life, and I wish our school couldn't afford their color printer. I'm legit traumatized.'"
