Moore’s manager confirmed the comic died on Friday August 6, making a statement on behalf of Moore’s wife, Aimee Carlson, and her family. “We are devastated by the loss of my husband, best friend and father of our son,” she said. “He was known as a writer and actor by millions of people, and yet for us he was simply the center of our entire world.
“We don’t know how we’re going to continue without him, but we are grateful for the memories we have that will stay in our memory 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 respect our privacy during this time of mourning. “
Details of the crash in which Moore was involved have not been made public at this point.
Moore co-founded The Whitest Kids U Know with Zach Cregger, Sam Brown, Timmy Williams and Darren Trumeter. The group produced a series of eponymous skits for IFC from 2007 to 2011.
They also made two films together, Miss Mars and Civil war on drugs, with a new animated feature film, Mars, should be released next year.
Speaking about how he got into comedy, Moore said Vulture in 2015: “I grew up in a very, very rural environment, a bit on a farm. We had no cable or anything. It forces you to create things out of sheer mind-numbing boredom. This prompted me to make short videos and sketches to entertain myself. I come back to a lot of themes, constantly.
“There is a lot of politics, history and religion. I think that’s part of growing up in a very conservative religious region of Virginia, where these are the topics that were always discussed when I grew up.
He hosted The Trevor Moore Show on Comedy Central since 2019. The network’s official Twitter account posted a tribute to the comic, writing, “Trevor Moore was an incredible talent and a vital member of the Comedy Central family. He will be sorely missed. “
