The Whitest Kids began in 1999 when Trevor Moore, a young comedian from Charlottesville, Virginia, transferred to New York's School of Visual Arts film program. Moore previously produced a local TV sketch-comedy show in Virginia titled The Trevor Moore Show, but it was later canceled.

After making the rounds at local New York City comedy clubs, he eventually met fellow SVA film student Sam Brown[1] from Massachusetts and SVA Graphic Design student/actor Zach Cregger, from Arlington, Virginia. By chance, all three lived in the same dormitory. According to an IFC interview, Trevor Moore says that the group's name originated during a freestyle rapping session on a subway, when one of their friends said, "You guys are the whitest kids I know."[2]

The troupe started off as an officially sanctioned club at School of Visual Arts. During the early years, WKUK included horror writer and director Jon Kovel, Oliver Lyons, Anthony Mair, singer Tina Tiongson. Timmy Williams also joined in late 2001 and was the only member at the time who did not attend SVA.[3]

The Whitest Kids U' Know held near-monthly free shows at SVA's amphitheater, which would frequently fill to capacity.[4] Finally, in 2003, as Moore approached graduation, the group separated officially from the school, and all but Moore, Brown, Cregger and Williams left the troupe. Darren Trumeter, an actor and filmmaker who had worked previously with Cregger, was then added that same year.[5]

Starting in 2003, the reinvented troupe started touring the various comedy venues in New York City, concluding in early 2005 with a well-attended show at Caroline's, a famous stand-up comedy club in Times Square
