Trevor Moore        

Actor, Comedian, Writer, Producer

Trevor Moore is an actor, comedian, writer, director, producer and musician, best known as the founding member of the New York City-based comedy troupe The Whitest Kids U' Know, who had their own sketch comedy series on IFC which ran for five seasons.

From 1997 to 1998, Trevor had a show called "The Trevor Moore Show," which ran on Public-access television in Charlottesville, Virginia. It garnered a following among the local college community, so by the time he was 18, Moore was offered a deal by Pax-TV a religious Christian network (now Ion Television).

Upon his last year of college and after the cancellation of his show, Moore had a personal internship with Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels. He was going to be there only for one semester, but they ended up asking him to stay the entire year. This got him into the coveted NBC page program; he did tours there for about a year after that. This program gets about 50,000 applications and the only take 50 people a year. He credits Saturday Night Live creator and executive producer as part of his comic education.

The Whitest Kids U'Know's success on the internet and on live shows led to an invitation to the 2006 HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, and they won the award for Best Sketch Group.

After the success of the group, Fox Searchlight approached Moore and Zach Cregger with a script for a movie project. After consideration they accepted and rewrote the original script and adapted it to their comedy style.

They directed and starred on "Miss March"-- Moore's first feature film.

After The Whitest Kids U' Know had a show on Fuse that ran for five seasons. It is now on syndication around the world.

While shooting the fifth season for the Whitest Kids U' Know, Moore wrote and filmed his second feature film along with the troupe called "The Civil War on Drugs," where they all played multiple roles. It was released in limited theaters and ultimately ran along the WKUK fifth season.

In recent years, Moore can periodically be seen on the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in recurring segments, showcasing pretaped man-on-the-street style comedy bits, which feature pranks on and encounters with unsuspecting public. Moore has also collaborated in various occasions with Funny or Die and The Comedy Central.

Since the foundation of the WKUK comedy troupe, Moore and the other members constantly participate in on-stage presentations, either individually or as a group in different projects. He tours every year with the WKUK troupe performing in live shows with old and new sketches.

From time to time Moore performs in live shows called the Whatev'r Show along other comedians in NYC and Hollywood.

Moore released his debut album from Comedy Central on March 2013. Called 'Drunk Texts to Myself.' He directed and starred in complementary musical videos for this album also produced by Comedy Central. The album has 12 tracks, such as Drunk Texts To Myself (feat. Reggie Watts) and What About Mouthwash?
