(The AEGIS Alliance) – A co-founding member of the sketch comedy team The Whitest Kids U Know, Trevor Moore, passed away on Friday in an undefined accident, aged 41.
The comic, actor, as well as producer’s fatality, has been affirmed in a statement released by his manager on his wife and loved one’s behalf, according to Deadline.
“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,” the statement apparently said.
“This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of grieving,” the statement added.
Moore started and led The Whitest Kids U Know together with Zach Cregger, Sam Brown, Timmy Williams as well as Darren Trumeter.
The performers, based in New York, apparently acquired nationwide interest after gaining a 2006 HBO United States Comedy Arts Festival award, and also created a self-titled show which lasted for 5 seasons on IFC and has a long-lasting appeal on YouTube.
Moore additionally created and directed a series on Disney XD called Walk the Prank, and had been the producer and host of Comedy Central’s “The Trevor Moore Show,”, that tweeted a homage to the Montclair, New Jersey, native on Saturday evening.

The comedian apparently began his career in show business at 12-years-old when he came to be the globe’s youngest cartoonist in 1995, according to The Virginian-Pilot.
“Such a warped mind at such a young age! Loved the book!’,” “Weird Al” Yankovic apparently stated of Moore’s “Scraps.”
When Moore was 16 he started writing regular animations for Virginia, newspapers, and afterward began creating a regular sketch comedy course for his regional TV station.
Moore got an internship in 1999 with “Saturday Night Live” Executive Producer Lorne Michaels and afterward came to be an NBC page, where he and his wife Aimee met.
“Early this morning, we learned that we lost our brother, our collaborator and the driving force behind WKUK,” Zach Cregger, as well as Sam Brown, both stated.
“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,” the statement read.
The statement added that “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.”
