It’s open to debate whether they’re really the whitest kids you know. But the five wags who call themselves the Whitest Kids U’Know may be among the funniest.
Now this sketch-comedy troupe has snagged a TV series that displays its gift for musical comedy shorts, video send-ups, twisted gags and sketches that will make you laugh – and sometimes squirm.
A rap video starring Hitler (“Triumph of the Ill”); a coquettish doe that flirts with hunters; a hyper mailroom clerk who makes demented movie pitches to studio bosses; even unabashed potty humor – it’s all part of the act.
Composed of Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, Zach Cregger, Timmy Williams and Darren Trumeter, the troupe formed when, by lucky accident, these chaps were all assigned to the same college dorm in Brooklyn seven years ago.
Lately, the Whitest Kids U’Know has been a fixture on the New York comedy scene, and won the Best Sketch Award at the 2006 Aspen Comedy Festival.
You can get to know “The Whitest Kids U’Know” when it premieres on Fuse at 11 p.m. Tuesday (or check them out on the Web at www.fuse.tv).
