Get Ready to Squirm with Laughter! Musical Sketch Comedy Troupe The Whitest Kids U'Know Drops on fuse.

Produced By Jim Biederman, The Whitest Kids U'Know Premieres March 20 at 11pm ET

PASADENA, Calif. -- What do you get when you combine politically-incorrect humor with down and dirty potty humor? Equal-opportunity-offenders The Whitest Kids U'Know, a musical sketch comedy troupe premiering March 20 at 11pm ET on fuse. The series, executive produced by Jim Biederman of Kids in the Hall and The Tom Green Show, features off-kilter musical comedy shorts, slapstick video parodies, and side-splitting sketch comedy, garnering a loyal following and sure to make viewers laugh and squirm.

The Whitest Kids U'Know bring a fresh, no-holds-bar perspective to politics, gender relations, pop-culture and of course, a good dose of potty humor. Having performed to sold-out audiences throughout the country, the troupe won the "Best Sketch" award at the 2006 Aspen Comedy Festival as well as being named "10 To Watch" by Daily Variety. Their off-color humor, bordering on the hysterically ridiculous, combined with their music-video sketches are something viewers won't want to miss.

"The Whitest Kids U'Know delivers on fuse's promise to seek new and emerging talent who set the trend and push the envelope of our programming while still maintaining our music sensibility," said Jennifer Caserta, Executive Vice President and General Manager, fuse. "The troupes' radical style of humor is a creative take on our culture and an identifiable point of reference for many of our viewers."

Comprised of Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, Zach Creggor, Timmy Williams, and Darren Trumeter, The Whitest Kids U'Know came on to the scene in 2003. Deemed "squirmingly hilarious," by the New York Times, the troupe is a staple on college campuses and within the New York underground music/comedy scene. Performing regularly at Pianos, the Lower East Side hipster music venue, The Whitest Kids U'Know have developed a loyal viral following due to their infamous video clips that can be found at www.fuse.tv.
