Those of you who watched Trever Moore‘s “The Whitest Kids U Know” will be saddened to know that he’s passed away. As of this time, Moore’s publicists have confirmed he passed late Friday evening as the result of an accident. He was 41.
Variety received a statement made on behalf of Moore’s wife, Aimee Carlson, and the family:
“We are devastated by the loss of my husband, best friend and the father of our son. He was known as a writer and comedian to millions, and yet to us he was simply the center of our whole world,” Carlson wrote. “We don’t know how we’ll go on without him, but we’re thankful for the memories we do have that will stay with us forever. We appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone. This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of grieving.”
“Whitest Kids You Know” was a comedy sketch show that featured Trevor Moore, Zach Cregger, Sam Brown, Timmy Williams and Darren Trumeter.
Brown and Cregger told Deadline:
“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.”
“The Whitest Kids U Know” ran for five seasons and became a big hit with comedy lovers. Our hearts go out to his wife Aimee and their son August at this time.
