“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. 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.” Moore is survived by his wife Aimee Carlson, an SVP at Fuzzy Door, and his son August.
Born on April 4, 1980, Trevor Paul Moore was known as one of the founding members, alongside Sam Brown and Zach Cregger, 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. He wrote and directed on the Disney XD series, 'Walk the Prank', a series about four children who pull off real pranks on unsuspecting people. Recently, he co-created and exec produced Disney’s series 'Just Roll With It' and he was the creator and host of 'The Trevor Moore Show' on Comedy Central.
Zach Cregger and Sam Brown issued this statement: “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.”
