What You'll Get
Improv comedy shows, unlike criminal-court proceedings and open-heart surgeries, encourage people in the room to shout out suggestions. Explore the extemporaneous with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four comedy classes for kids at Studio LOL in Studio City (a $120 value). Studio LOL educates young people (aged 4–18) about comedy, instilling values such as creativity, teamwork, concentration, and courage in the process. Katherine Kraus, Studio LOL's owner and head coach, trained at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, as well as with the Upright Citizens Brigade and the Groundlings. Studio LOL teaches chuckle-desiring children a number of comedic courses, including improv, sketch, and Giggles, a class reserved for kids ages 4–6 that teaches students how to use their imaginations to fix the transmission of a 1986 Ford Thunderbird. Kids attend one scheduled class each week and perform live after completing eight weeks of class, which will happen only if they choose to continue classes after the first four included in one Groupon. The studio itself is brightly lit and welcoming, with vibrant blue walls, plenty of folding chairs, and a medieval knight guarding the entrance, defending the classroom against seriousness and child bounty hunters.
