The Laughter Life follows a week in the professional life of the young comedians who write and star in Studio C, a popular sketch comedy television show viewed by tens of thousands of people weekly. But theirs is not your typical comedy success story, as the cast and crew behind the program are practicing Mormons living in the deeply observant community of Provo, Utah. The film explores the tension inherent in creating “clean” comedy that will satisfy both the demands of the network and the cast’s desire to generate a funny final product.
