What do bloodthirsty Vikings, yoga, and essential oils all have in common? They were all recently featured in a skit that won over the judges on NBC's Bring the Funny.
JK! Studios, which features many of the original cast members from BYUtv's Studio C, won the praise of judges Jeff Foxworthy, Chrissy Teigen, and Kenan Thompson Tuesday night and advanced on to the semifinal rounds.
The sketch, which combined some of the most fearsome characters in history with modern-day trends, made judge Jeff Foxworthy say, "I watch you guys, and I wish I was part of a sketch troupe."
"I thought you guys were awesome," judge Kenan Thompson added. "You guys are . . . a very, very professional sketch group.”

Judge Chrissy Teigen noted how this week's sketch took on a completely different tone and pace than their kids' show sketch. "As soon as you came out, I knew it was going to be something different, which is what we love to see," she says. "We love to see people taking our notes and stepping outside the box."
