Fans and friends are in mourning over the sudden passing of Trevor Moore, a stellar comedian and founding member of The Whitest Kids U’ Know sketch comedy troupe.

The Whitest Kids U’ Know


Trevor Moore was a founding member of The Whitest Kids U’ Know (WKUK), a sketch comedy group formed by a handful of students at New York’s School of Visual Arts. Moore and his friends Sam Brown and Zach Cregger founded the group in 1999, with Timmy Williams joining later.

In 2003, the troupe departed from the school and began finding success in the real world. They began touring New York City’s top comedy venues, and in 2005, WKUK began working with comedy producer Jim Biederman.

By 2006, Biederman had helped WKUK to land their own TV show on the Fuse network, which later moved to IFC due to Fuse’s restricting limitations on comedy content at the time. IFC continued producing the show for five seasons, up until April of 2011.
