''The Whitest Kids U Know'' is an uncensored sketch comedy show on IFC. The cast members are Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, Zach Cregger, Timmy Williams and Darren Trumeter. They're currently most famous for the "Slow Jerk" sketch, the "Abe Lincoln" sketch (in which Abe Lincoln is a loutish boor who annoys John Wilkes Booth to the point of assassinating him), and the "New Thing" sketch, which was (without the WKUK's permission) ripped off shamelessly by Budweiser. Most of their sketches fall under the following categories: Presidential Assassinations (with Zach as Abe Lincoln/Ronald Reagan/JFK, Trevor as John Wilkes Booth/John Hinckley/Lee Harvey Oswald, Sam as George H.W. Bush/Lyndon B. Johnson, and Darren as a Secret Service officer), [[DudeLooksLikeALady Drag sketches]] (most often with Darren or Timmy as the girl), or just plain weird ones (Saturday, Opus, etc).

They've occasionally [[ExecutiveMeddling come into conflict]] with the higher-ups of the Fuse Network (the censoring of swearing and sexual content led them to move the show to IFC) and even IFC (making them do 15 minute long shows rather than half hour long). But for the most part, they have full creative control of their sketches.
----
!!Tropes:

* BlackComedy: Some of their sketches are extremely dark. One quote: "Children, I have some terrible news. One of your mothers was just killed in a car accident. Who wants to guess whose mother it was for a sucker? Huh?"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1IS_kRSRbM "Kid Mechanic" is one example played straight, to horrifying effect.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5fOig1jJeg "Baby Factory" takes it up to 11... then up to 12.]]
** "We have to go save 9/11!"
* {{Bowdlerise}}: A rather unusual example... it seems Youtube decided that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ny0ix0OyO1c "The Jizzle" was too raunchy for a video title and renamed it to "the aueter".]] Even though they let stuff like Jizz In My Pants by without censorship...
* TheCastShowoff: Trevor tends to get a lot of screen time compared to others.
** Well, he is the head writer with a producers credit. And he's cute.
* CrossDressingVoices: Zach doesn't even bother to make his voice higher sometimes. The other guys put on a realistic, feminine voice or a goofy falsetto depending on the episode.
* TheDanza: Characters played by Timmy are invariably named Timmy.
* {{Defictionalization}}: That drunken Bowser tattoo from "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Uy2lyWo7II&feature=related Tattoo Parlor]]"? [[http://www.geekologie.com/2008/03/24/questionable-bowser-tattoo.jpg Somebody actually got that.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Darren, even though when not in drag he's pretty obviously a guy.
** Except then there's that "Weird the Stripper" sketch... the, er, makeup job was so pinpoint perfect that the viewer was kicked to his/her death over the rim of the UncannyValley.
*** And the "Dog Poop" sketch which at first you really think its a real girl
** It's pretty disturbing how convincing a lot of the guys are as women... especially Timmy, who could easily pass off as someone's mom.
** Lampshaded in the Yellow Mustard sketch, where a news report has Timmy's character in drag, and the caption is "cross-dresser"
* FiveManBand (though they can shift from sketch to sketch):
** TheHero: Trevor
** TheLancer: Zach
** TheSmartGuy: Darren
** TheBigGuy: Sam
** TheChick: Darren wearing a wig.
** TagalongKid: Timmy, the ButtMonkey
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Lampshaded in one sketch, in which they end the sketch by bringing out a topless woman with her breasts covered with censor bars. Trevor comments that if you buy the DVD, it won't be censored.
** [[TruthInTelevision It isn't.]]
*** However, it doesn't work so well on IFC, where the sketch is shown uncensored.
* GoshdangItToHeck: Trevor never really says anything worse than "bitch", while the other guys [[ClusterFBomb curse like sailors.]]
** WordOfGod says this is due to Trevor having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
** Subverted with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TxjrHPHypA Pope Rap]] where he drops repeated f-bombs and curses like crazy.
* LargeHam: Zach's characters tend to be this, when he doesn't play the straight man.
* OverlyLongGag: A lot of their sketches rely on this. "People like ''you'' think that the ''devil''..."
* PrecisionFStrike: A common technique to end a sketch. If the entire sketch has been carefully devoid of profanity, expect to see this in action.
* RefugeInAudacity: And how.
* TheReveal: Many sketches end this way. A common gag is to have a sketch go in a seemingly normal direction, until a wacky twist shows up at the end (Such as in "Jaws," or the one with the Clap On, Clap Off Rasta Drummer)
* SassyBlackWoman: One reoccurring character is a fat black woman who usually says "oh HELLLL no!" when outraged.


!Specific sketches from The Whitest Kids U Know give examples of:
* AccidentallyAccurate: Possibly, or possibly ShownTheirWork. In "Gallon of PCP", Trevor "didn't even know [PCP] came in liquid form," to which Zach replies, "[[HandWave Science.]]" Liquid PCP does in fact exist, and is yellowish as shown in the show.
* AffectionateParody: "Sam in a Bag" was a parody of Series/{{AfterschoolSpecial}}s. Don't take pots, kids.
* AggressiveNegotiations: A company merger just wouldn't be complete without a sniper, assault rifles, flash bombs, and a mortar round.
* AlienAutopsy: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEyHcEq-Ylg One sketch]] sees a team of doctors at {{Area 51}} beginning to perform one such autopsy on an alien corpse recovered from [[RoswellThatEndsWell Roswell]].
* AnachronismStew: The opening narration of one sketch describes ''American'' forces closing in on Nazi ''President'' AdolfHitler at ''Christmastime'' in ''1944''. As they are about to break into the bunker, one soldier shouts out "We're comin' to getcha, ya Jew bastard!" They then find Creator/CharlieChaplin inside. He distracts them with his shenanigans, then takes one of their bolt-action rifles and fires it like a machine gun. Hitler then thanks his "Best Friend" for saving his life once again.[[note]]While Hitler was a fan of The Tramp, Chaplin was a socialist democrat of Jewish descent who hated Hitler (''TheGreatDictator'' being one of the greatest {{Take That}}'s ever).[[/note]]
* AsYouKnow: Lampshaded in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86J-bffNGEE End of Space]].
* AuthorFilibuster: The "Backseat" sketch points out how socialism is really the most beneficial form of government as it treats all people equally, while capitalism teaches the exact opposite of the principles of every religion in the world while playing on man's flaws. The joke is [[DirtyCommunists that this]] is [[EagleLand what sets off the driver]].
* BerserkButton: "PIZZA'S NOT FOR BREAKFAST!"
* BigNo: In "Give Me The Guns"
* BilingualBonus: The Vietnamese in "Asian Hooker" hides a couple of funny lines.
* BlackComedyRape:
** '''[[CrossesTheLineTwice "I'M GONNA TIE YOU TO THE RADIATOR GRAPE YA IN THE MOUTH! OKAY, WHEN I'M FINISHED GRAPING YOU, I'M GONNA GO UPSTAIRS AND I'M GONNA GRAPE YOUR MOTHER, AND THEN YOUR FATHER, AND THEN I'M GOING TO TAKE YOUR WHOLE FAMILY DOWN TO THE BASEMENT, AND GRAPE YOU ALL FOR DECADES AND DECADES AND DECADES AND DECAAAAADES!"]]'''
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj2LTD528VY We gon' make love until you wake up...]]"
** Gandalf sketch
* ClusterFBomb: '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4Uf9rsBbhc Abraham Lincoln]]'''
** "Halloweiner"
* BodyHorror: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBarJFm51OE Having a whale penis surgically grafted to your forehead? Mouth replaced with a giraffe vagina?]] May count as {{Squick}} as well.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBNzYpCBnfg This Sketch]] mixed with TooDumbToLive and ArtisticLicenseBiology.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "Abraham Lincoln was actually hammered in the ass so much... that he died from being hammered in the ass."
* DropTheCow: A sketch where the boys continue to list off strip-clubs (with [[HurricaneOfPuns increasingly disturbing names]]) is interrupted by the producer, who says that the sketch has no point. [[SubvertedTrope And then he starts listing more puns.]]
* DrugsAreBad
* EroticAsphyxiation
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Like gettin' high. "You're welcome... Internet."
** Horses are also turned on by stegosauruses.
* [[BearsAreBadNews Everything's Worse With Bears Wearing Bulletproof Vests]]: "Is that what you want? Invincible bears runnin' around, rapin' your churches, burnin' your women?"
* FarSideIsland: "Island Cannibal" sketch
* FridgeLogic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRcMVMeXPQ4 Invoked]], in regards to the ending of ''TheLordOfTheRings''.
* GagBoobs: Darren as Weird the Stripper.
* GodwinsLawOfTimeTravel: Parodied. Apparently, just resetting your internet history is enough for Nazi zeppelins and Nazi dinosaurs with laser eyes to appear.
* TheGrimReaper: Stumbles around making guttural animal noises, before devouring dead bodies and then depositing them in coffins... the hard way.
* IKEAWeaponry: a sniper has a company supervisor pinned down. Said supervisor assembles a sniper rifle from a briefcase, [[RefugeInAudacity uses an intern as bait,]] and kills the opposing sniper.
** [[JustifiedTrope justified]], he was using a Blaser R93 Tactical 2, a ''takedown'' rifle.
* IRejectYourReality: A sketch had a man and his family screaming at the viewers about how they live in garbage because his daughter forgot to bow to "His Holiness". [[spoiler: Turns out to be some crazy guy who hangs around a bakery. The employees and the police are familiar with him, but that time he had a little kid with him.]]

* PunnyName: "Dr. Peppers", "[[strike: Mr.]]Dr. Pibbs", and "General Mills" from the AlienAutopsy sketch, and Capt. Maximilian Crunch from Manatee Finger Bang.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t2Kvwe_KSw Their SNL parody opening is full of these... in fact, the ones that are NOT fake blend in so well with the rest...]]
* SadistTeacher: One sketch had a teacher making her students guess which one of their mothers had just died in a car crash. It follows with asking how long it took for her to die, how long it took to get her body out of the car, and that the kid, Joey, will most likely die in the streets. The teacher then chides Joey for not participating, and when asked to act out his mom's last moments, tells him "the demons in hell are probably laughing at your mom for what a piss poor actor her son is."
** [[spoiler: Turns out it was another kid whose mom died. The teacher just really hates Joey.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: The reporter in "Kid Beer", after announcing there's now beer for ''babies'' tosses her microphone behind her and walks off camera in disgust.
* SeenItAllSuicide: A variation in "Kid Beer".

* StealthPun: In "Alien Autopsy", [[spoiler:the alien turns out to be a piñata. In other words, a Mexican alien.]]
* SuddenlySexuality: In the sketch "Feeler Doc", a doctor frets about the possibility of turning gay immediately after checking his patient's balls for a lump. [[spoiler:He does.]]
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "It's Not Kittens, It's Chicken" features a restaurant by that name.
* StupidCrooks: One skit is about a group of would-be bank robbers who repeatedly fail the same criminal plot over and over for many different reasons, ranging from not being able to read the bank's blueprints, bringing friends from out of town along to the robbery, and posting plans to rob the bank on a blog (along with a hyperlink to the bank's website wherever the word "bank" is used).
* TakeThat: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkJWMYlxMw0 "That's right: Ozzfest--not affected by the abduction of all the world's smart people."]]
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: "She shaved her vagina hair! That is so attractive to me!"
* TooSoon: On a hunting trip, Trevor repeatedly makes jokes about a friend who died in a hunting accident... yesterday.

''TheWhitestKidsUKnow'' is an uncensored sketch comedy show on IFC. The cast members are Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, Zach Cregger, Timmy Williams and Darren Trumeter. They're currently most famous for the "Slow Jerk" sketch, the "Abe Lincoln" sketch (in which Abe Lincoln is a loutish boor who annoys John Wilkes Booth to the point of assassinating him), and the "New Thing" sketch, which was (without the WKUK's permission) ripped off shamelessly by Budweiser. Most of their sketches fall under the following categories: Presidential Assassinations (with Zach as Abe Lincoln/Ronald Reagan/JFK, Trevor as John Wilkes Booth/John Hinckley/Lee Harvey Oswald, Sam as George H.W. Bush/Lyndon B. Johnson, and Darren as a Secret Service officer), [[DudeLooksLikeALady Drag sketches]] (most often with Darren or Timmy as the girl), or just plain weird ones (Saturday, Opus, etc).
