We're Katy and Ryan Chase!
We opened Studio LOL in 2010, we love to laugh through life's ups and downs, and we have three crazy kids of our own. We are losing our sanity, one child at a time.
We believe in using improv as a sneaky way to practice:
Finding Your Voice
Our favorite hobbies include teaching improv to kids (since 2003!), performing in funny commercials and TV shows, and staring at pictures of our children after they finally go to bed.
Katy runs the show around here these days, leading our brilliant, hilarious team of Teaching Artists. You can click here to read a recent interview where she discusses the idea of choosing creativity and a spirit of "Yes, And" in 2020. Or click here to listen to a recent appearance on the "Improvised Parenting" Podcast, where she talks all things improv and parenting.
We founded Studio LOL in Los Angeles, where we spent a decade bringing in-person improv training to thousands of funny kids and teens. In 2020 we relocated to be near family on the East Coast and have been delivering joy and laughter online ever since. It's a complete joy to bring this work to students all over the country, and to help kids discover the tricks of doing comedy on-camera!
