Trevor Moore, comedic tour-de-force and founding member of the mid 2000's comedy darlings Whitest Kids U Know, passed away last Sunday at the age of 41 in what is being called "a tragic accident." The official cause is currently not public.
Moore's fellow WKUK co-founders and longtime collaborators Zach Cregger and Same Brown posted the following statement on the WKUK website:
“Early this morning, we learned that we lost our brother, our collaborator and the driving force behind WKUK. He was our best friend, and we speak for all of us in saying that the loss of Trevor is unimaginable. We are heartbroken and our grief pales in comparison to the loss felt by his wife and son. On behalf of WKUK, we ask for privacy during our time of profound grief, and strength for his family who are dealing with the impossible thought of living life without him. Our hope is that friends, fellow artists, and fans that loved him will not focus on his death, but will remember the countless moments of laughter he gave them.”
— Zach Cregger and Sam Brown
It should come as no surprise to any regular reader that all of us here at EBW were huge fans of WKUK. I speak for all of us when I say the often-offensive and always-hilarious brand of humor that show embodied was a seminal influence for all of us.
We can think of no better way to honor Moore's incredible legacy than to look back and once again erupt with laughter at some of his best work.
1. It's Time For Guillotines - This feels oddly prescient in 2021.
2. The Slow Jerk
3. The Raddest Kid Ever
4. The John Cleese Sketch
5. The Illuminati
6. Old Folks Home - Total bop. People often forget how great Trevor was at musical comedy.
8. Helicopter Wife Cheating
9. God Says
10. We Want to Join the Army
12. Good Business
13. Opposite Day
14. Race War! - I love how you can hear Sam lose it and start laughing at the end.
15. Gallon of PCP - This is always the first thing I think of when I think of this show
RIP, Trevor Moore. Your family, friends, and fans will miss you.
