OOOOOOOO..K!! Sorry it has taken me so long to get to these. I’ve been really busy finishing up the album this month (It’s done and I’m shooting music videos for the songs now!!).
But here you go, Here’s a new round of MONDAY QUESTIONS (that never actually come out on Mondays anymore.)! If you have more questions, just leave them in the comments section of this post and I’ll get to ‘em!
ALSO!! If anyone wants to come, I’m doing the first new WHATEVR SHOW of the year on the 26th of July at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles. Tickets are here: http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performances/view/24035
Ok! Heeeeeree Weeeee Goooooo….
Q#1: Floyd Dehanne: Hi Trevor! Big fan also who wanted to know if there were ever a zombie apocalypse which of the other WKUK troupe members would you sacrifice first and why? Btw I love your music look forward to your album release
T.M: All of them. At the same time. Then I’d run away as they got eaten. And thanks!!!
Q#2:Tara R.: Hey Trevor! If you weren’t involved in acting what career would you want to be in?
T.M: Probably journalism. Or a fish boat captain.
Q#3: Clarissa: Question 1, Who is your favorite poet? Just saw your brilliant sketch Walt Whitman and I was wondering if you all did that cause he’s either your favorite poet or just to spoof PBS?
Question 2, That sketch, Dr. Kyle COMPLETELY reminded me of House -did Hugh Laurie’s House inspire the sketch or is it just coincidence?
Question 3, do you honestly like having fans ask you for advice or are you kind of over it?
Question 4, if you’re not to over it I really could use your expertise haha
This guy I like does shrooms and I’ve always wanted to try them, tonight two of these girls I knew told me “Don’t do them” “you wouldn’t be able to handle it, you’re already paranoid.”. Is it just me or is that extreme insulting and they’re doubting my strength?
T.M: #1 Charles Bukowski is probably my favorite poet – although I’m not really a big poetry reader – so my knowledge of who’sout there is pretty limited. #2 No, we didn’t base that sketch off of House. I’ve only seen bits and pieces of the show. That’s funny that the characters lined up like that though. #3. I’m not over it! #4: I don’t know enough about you – but I do know that psycadelics can bring out whatever you’ve got going on inside. So if you are a paranoid person – you’re more likely to have a bad time. Be safe.
Q#4:Karen: Trevor PLEASE sometime while you’re in NYC can we get drunk together?
Which bars do you hang around midtown and what nights -if it’s not too presumptuous to ask??? It’d be a dream come true to hang out with or get drunk with you!!
T.M: I’m back in LA now. I was in NY for a month recording the album but now I’m shooting the music videos on the West Coast Maybe next time!
Q#5: frankenfi: I am a Future Teacher of America! This fall I am transfering to a university. I am super-stinkin’ excited to begin school but I am nervous too. If you ever felt fearful of a new campus, what did you do?
T.M: Whenever I switched to a new campus, I would just hang out in the lobby of the dorm until people came up and said hi to me. Then I’d go be friends with them. True story.
Q#6:Anthony LaPaglia: Hey Trevor! Huge fan of Whitest Kids U Know and I absolutely loved the movie Miss March. I own it on Blu ray and DVD, I showed the movie to my friends in school who love WKUK and they thought the movie was Hilarious! I just wanted to ask if you ever got offered to make a sequel to Miss March, would you want to do it? Also what do you think Tucker and Eugene’s lives are like now after the events of Miss March?
T.M: Thanks Anthony! I don’t think they’d offer us money to do a sequel but I’d probably do it and write it really crazy. Tucker probably died a couple weeks later and Eugene probably married Cindi, then she divorced him and he works at a motel.
Q#7:Nell says: I’ve been writing and recording my music for years and am currently in the process of trying to set up my own music page. However, I’m a little hesitant. The only thing holding me back from putting myself out there is that I’m afraid of what people might say about me. Believe me, I know that sounds really ridiculous considering rude comments pretty much go hand-in-hand with any type of performing.
So my question is, how do you deal with negative things that are said about you? As a performer I really respect, I wondered if maybe you could shed some light on this for me?
Thank you so much again, seriously. And I hope I’m able to attend a show this fall since I’m finally eighteen and able to get in!
T.M: I think the best way is to just really, really want to do/say what you’re doing/saying. If you care enough about what you’re making, then that should help you to shrug it off if people say mean things about it. I’m sure it will always stings a bit when people say mean things – but who cares about them? Just keep your head down and do what you want to do. And good luck!
Q#8:Kellie says: I know you’re best friends with Josh Fadem, and he just made a video called dinner for 2 that pretty much is the exact same thing as Timmy Talk show. Who’s the real mastermind behind this??????????
T.M: No idea!!!! But maybe if we play them side by side, the two Timmy’s and the two Josh’s are talking to each other.
Q#9:saba:Hey Trevor, I’m a huge fan…I love wkuk. I wanna know if or when your tour will bring you in or around Mississippi? I know we are a bunch of rednecks here but I also know many people that would love to see you. And one more question….if I ask nicely would u marry me? Lmao….
T.M: We want to play some more shows in the south this year. So hopefully we’ll get to Mississippi. And I’m already married – but ok, maybe.
Q#10:Heidi Hallas: Do you guy’s plan on keeping up the comedic career with WKUK in movies? I know you guy’s have done a few kinda think it would be neat to see you guys franchise into comedic wkuk movies. Kinda like how Monty Python did comedy skits and branched off into movies. I will most definitely keep an eye out for tour dates in LA. Thanks for your time I know your a busy dude.. but well appreciated.
T.M: Yeah, we’re working on a new WKUK movie right now. We’re hoping to have the script done by the end of the summer and then we’d like to shoot it as soon as possible. And we’ll be doing more and more shows as WKUK in the coming months.
Q#11:Kurt says: Hi Trevor!
Do you get annoyed by people asking you for advice/hitting on you/whatever else they do on the internet?
T.M: No, it’s chill.
Q#12:Zack says: Hey Trevor! I’ve found out that your into conspiracies and stuff like that. Well my question is what are your takes on aliens. And also what is your favorite UFO story? Lastly Id like to thank you for all the laughs you and the whitest kids have given me and I hope to see you on tour in boston sometime soon. Thanks.
T.M: I actually don’t pay too much attention to the UFO conspiracy theories. But I do think that “aliens” are probably more likely intra-dimensional beings than intergalactic.
Q#13:Stephanie says: Hey, just wondering about the album. Is it gonna be comedy or serious music stuff? Maybe both?
I took 4 buses to Boston for the Royale show a while back. Loved it. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to say hi to you again. Hope you guys get to do another NYC show!
T.M: It’s going to be all comedy songs. Like the songs I used to do on the Whitest Kids show -just a whole album of new ones.
Q#14:Andrew says: Hi Trevor! I want to say thank you for all the laughs you’ve given me! Legend.
Will the DC area be one of your stops on your next tour??
What is the largest animal you bet you can outrun?
T.M: Yes, we’ll definitely do D.C again soon. And probably a Blue Whale.
Q#15:Tim says: Hi Trevor! first i would like to say i’m a huge fan and i hope that the tour comes to Pittsburgh Pa so i can c u preform. I have 3 questions if u don’t mind 1.Are you going to do another movie because miss march was hilarious and a really good movie and people who don’t think so apparently don’t have a sense of humor or a funny bone in there body!. 2.Is your cd going to be released in stores? 3. i myself want to do sketch comedy i write my own songs some parodys so do you have any advice? sorry i wrote so much
T.M: Thanks Tim! We’re trying to work on a WKUK movie right now. And yeah, the CD will be in stores. That’s awesome that you’re writing songs too. Just have fun with it. Write whatever makes you laugh the most. And hopefully there’ll be people out there with your sense of humor too!
Q#16:Mary Kate says: Hey trevor! I love wkuk so much and you guys are all so talented, you inspire me to make others laugh! So my question is who is your favorite comedian? Also i’m just curious, are you good at math? Thanks and i hope whitest kids come to chicago soon!
T.M: I have a lot of favorite comedians. Python, Bill Hicks, Steve Coogan, etc.. I’m pretty ok at math. Not great at algebra. After fractions, I was kind of like, I don’t think I’m going to need this and I kind of checked out.
Q#17:E says: How does OCD manifest in your life, other than annoyingly? Specifically.
T.M: Mostly just stupid little routines or sayings I’ll have to perform before I do things/leave rooms, etc. But over the years the routines/sayings get longer and longer and more elaborate and time consuming. So I’m trying to will myself to quit all of it alltogether, but it’s kinda tough.
Q#18:Bella : I’ve been listening to the commentary of the WKUK DVD’s and I have some questions: A) What’s up with the clocks at 4:20? B) Why did you kiss Zach. For what sketch was it. He just played along and afterwards got angry at you. What’s the full story? C) Do you practice any religion seriously like deep inside do you believe in God? D) Do you really have a cat? Love you. I really miss you and I would love to see you every day. Thank you so much and for sharing and staying in touch it means a lot to us it makes us suffer a little less the absence of new episodes. Your generosity will pay off. Have an excellent week. You’re great! xo
T.M: A) We just started putting all the clocks at 420 because its number associated with marijuana and we’re immature. B) That story’s not really true. We were making it up. C) I don’t really adhere too strictly to any organized religion. But I think that there’s probably a God. D) And I really do have a cat. Her name is Beatrix! Thanks Bella!!
Q#19:E. Recksins says: When are you guys planning on releasing the DVDs for season 4 & 5 as well as the cd with the song ‘old folks home’? I have been trying to buy them online but cant find them anywhere. Also what do u prefer, Xbox or ps3? ……. Halo of cod? Oh and who came up with the sketch for ‘weird’? That was hilarious!
T.M: Not sure when/if the season 4 and 5 DVD’s will come out. That’s more of IFC’s department. And I prefer Xbox and I used to prefer Call of Duty. But I haven’t liked the last two that much, so now I probably prefer Halo.
Q#20:L.Anderl says:Hi Trevor!
Iam from germany and one of your one of your and the wkuk biggest fans here! do you think you and the other wkuk will perform here someday? maybe at some english comedy night.
T.M: No plans to tour out of the country at the moment, but I think that would be fun!
Q#21:Brendon Booton says: Hey Trevor! I love your show! I was wondering when do you think that the WKUK movie will come out to theaters or when is a trailer? Also have you watched Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, I think it’s great! I want you to be in one of my videos for youtube, that would be awesome, but i’m all the way in Iowa. but yeah, your awesome man!
T.M: We’re still writing the movie right now. We’re hoping to have the script done in the next month. So it’ll still be a bit before the trailer comes out. I haven’t seen Tim & Eric’s movie yet, but I’ve heard good things. I want to see it.
Q#22:Clara says:Trevor! Just had to let you know, seeing you all at the Va State Theater was one of the best nights of my life – my dad surprised me with tickets cause he’s a huge fan too!You all were amazing and just hope you all had as much fun as we did?
Just wondering -you all played Justin Bieber’s Baby -are you all fans of him? Not to be rude but I can’t stand him… I just find him overrated.
T.M: Thanks Clara! We had a lot of fun at that show! No, we don’t really listen to a lot of Justin Bieber. I did see his documentary though and thought it was really weird/fascinating.
Q#23:Madelene (and Hannah. Sigh.) says: Hey Trevor. My friend and I are huge fans, so we have two questions:
1-Can you lower the age limit for your shows? We are not yet 18. Also, wanna hit up Hartford, CT? It’s boring, but…well, that’s a reason to come. I guess.
2-When Timmy shits himself (or poops his pants, whichever you prefer) in the conference room, what was the turd made out of? Pudding and oatmeal, perhaps?
T.M: 1. Some of our show’s are all ages, some aren’t – it kind of depends on the club and whether they sere alcohol. 2. And the turd was made out of a melted Snickers bar with Hershey’s syrup poured over it.
Q#24:Gus says: hey trevor, two questions. 1 where were you on the second season of breaking in? 2 do you guys plan on doing a live show in Mexico?
T.M: They cut some characters and brought in some new ones. Mine got cut. So I was chilling at my house with Beatrix, my cat during Season 2. No plans to do a show in Mexico yet, but maybe!
Q#25:Andrea says: A friend just posted your Finger Ring sketch in reply to an 80′s cartoon discussion, and it reminded me poignantly of many of our ridiculous toys when we were children, specifically a Thundercats Eye of Omens ring with a sekrit compartment I loved as a 5 year old. And the cinnamon scent as a “feature” was absurdly true of those plastic collectibles. You often lampoon the childhood sense of wonder that is both stupidly zany and cynically manipulated by marketing, but there is a sense of sweetness and whimsy in your sketches. Do you ever feel like something is sacrosanct, and pull back or alter sketches, or is a sign that you need to go farther, and parody it more? Would you trade your childhood for one less affected by marketing, toys, and television? Do you plan on having children of your own? Will you permit them exposure to the same forces?
T.M: I can’t really think of a specific case where we’ve held back on something – but I know we have. We’ll often discuss amongst ourselves whether asketch is too messed up to put in the show. And yes I think that marketing/television has a more negative than positive effect on kids. The problem is that it’s so ubiquitous that if you try to remove a kid from it’s influence, they’ll have a harder time making friends and they’ll be considered weird (like homeschoolers). I think the best thing you can do is teach kids to recognize that they’re constantly being sold to and to take everything on tv with a grain of salt.
Q#26:Alexis says: Hey!!!!! I my brother Curtis showed me your show wkuk and I love it soo much my favorite skit is the space potatoes! my brothers. Has helped me solo much this past year and I wanted to do something for him? During one of your new skits can you please name one of your characters Curtis!?!?! I would love that!
T.M: Not sure when we’ll be doing new skits. But I could just say ‘Hi’ to him right now! Hi Curtis!
Q#27: Luke says: Hey, Trevor. Huge fan of WKUK. I only heard about you guys about 2 years, but I’ve been hooked since day one. Anyway, if you’re ever near Cleveland, I’ll be sure to make it to a show. Anyway, a few questions:
1) Coke or Pepsi?
2) Do you write the majority or even all of the WKUK songs? You seem to be the most musically adept in the group, but then again that may just be because you’re the only one who does stuff on camera.
3) If you are the main music writer/player of the group, how did you get so good at comedic music? I’ve played drums seriously for about 2 years, and guitar for about a year and a half. I’m decent at performing music, and I’m (from what it seems) a pretty funny guy. But when I try to mix the two, it just doesn’t work. Maybe it’s because I’m trying too hard (let’s face it, people who TRY too hard to be funny are usually annoying), but all I know is that it’s not working for me.
4) What’s the craziest experience of your life? Whether it’s most dangerous, most exciting, scariest, etc.
Anyway, thanks if you answer, and keep being awesome.
T.M: Hey Luke! 1) Coke 2) Yeah, I usually write the songs on the show (besides the ‘Boner Song’ which everyone wrote and ‘Hippo in the City’ which was Darren’s idea) 3) I don’t play the instruments on the songs. I can play guitar a little (chords) but we have actual studio musicians play when we’re recording the tracks. 4) I’m not sure … I’ve jumped out a window when cops were raiding a party in college. That was kind of fun.
Q#28 :Frank Tutankhamun says: Hey Trevor,
Was wondering since WKUK started in front of an audience and was a regular live performance, was there ever any consideration of doing the televised show that way (not necessarily aired live but taped live) when you were developing it for fuse? Any thoughts on audience laughter in sketch/comedy tv shows?
And as a Python fan I was surprised to find that Cleese never altered his performance during takes, did you guys experiment with each take, or always follow the script, or if it was funny once, stick to it or editor’s choice?
Got to see you in Philly the night Whitney Houston died, bar the epic, soul shattering sadness of the announcement, twas a great show. Best of luck on the up-coming projects.
T.M: Thanks Steve! No, we never really thought about it being in front of an audience. We knew that we wanted to do more edited, film-like sketches than single scene sketches (that play better for an audience.) We also never really had that much time to change takes up that much. We’d shoot up to 17 pages a day so we had to just get it and move.
Q#29:Clara says: Trevor, again love you huge fan! In the sketch Sick Employee ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Qni-jyXcbk&feature=results_main&playnext=1&list=PLB972636BCD1B5829 ), did you actually throw up?? I know you guys do a lot of method acting so I was wondering if here if you were actually throwing up or if you put some kind of fake vomit or something in your mouth?? It looked authentic and was kinda curious huh
T.M: Haha! No, that’s just some sort of salsa/ soup mixture our prop department made.
Q#30:Kelly says: Trevor!! Please say you’re still in NYC??Otherwise if you already left I’m gonna be miserable I never got a chance to see/meet you:((((
T.M: I did leave. I’m sorry I finished the album recording and am back on the west coast. But we’ll be back in NY this fall to do some WKUK shows.
Q#31:Miguel says: Hey Trevor, do you know the comic strip “cyanide & happiness”? I think you have a very similar sense of humor. Also, I read somewhere you used to do a comic strip at school, have you ever considered going back to that?
Btw, since you’re a native english speaker, do you do comic strips or do you make them?
Thanks in advance and please come to Europe with the troupe.
T.M: I’ve seen the strip a couple times and I think it’s great! I’ve never really considered going back to comics but who knows, maybe some time. I did comic strips for a couple newspapers from the age of 16 – 26 and enjoyed it a lot but I quit once I started getting too busy with the show.
Q#32:Karen says:Trevor, i value your opinion more than anyone’s so I need your serious advice. I like this guy. We’ve hooked up a few times but it’s been after he’s downed some alcohol or something. He says he cares about me but he doesn’t want a girlfriend because his other girlfriend “hurt him so badly.”. Now I feel like he’s doing the same with me and toying my emotions. I’m not trying to be obsessed but the other night out of no control I sent him this message:
“can I just ask why.. Why did you say anything about making plans, hanging or anything when you never intended to even associate with me after the party.. How much do you hate me to fuck with me like that?You know i consider you a friend.. and all you did was toy with it and you never had any intention of doing anything with me.
I’m sorry about bothering you but I needed to get that out and I’m kinda curious why you would do that.. You seemed better than that”
How over dramatic was that message because according to Facebook he’s “seen” it but won’t respond?? Am I insane? I know I’m hype to get his attention but I guess I’m trying to force my way to be more than his hook up girl. Do you think I officially creeped him out and that’s why he won’t respond?
Againsorry to impose but wanted to seek the Trevor Moore’s council on my fucked up love life.
Love you by the way!! And was wondering if any of you, Zach, Timmy, Sam or Darren actually play the Didgereedo -sorry for massacring that spelling!
T.M: Well, seeing as it took me so long to get to these responses, I’m sure your problem has worked it’s way out one way or the other by now. But I’d say just move on. You’re obviously putting more work into your relationship than he is – and that’s never going to be fufilling for you. So who cares if you creeped him out or not. Creep him out more. Send him really messed up anonymous texts and leave chicken parts in his mailbox. And none of us play the digiridoo (sp?)
Q#33:Lauren says: Trevor!! Saw you guys at the Virginia State Theater this past Febraury and you all were ridiculously amazing of course but I have to ask, if you remember, about an hour or two before your performance, when I parked the car in the little lot, I thought I saw you and maybe Sam walk by in the parking lot? Then as I sat down in a cafe like a block from the theater I thought I saw Zach walk by the window. It’s bugged me since February abd will bug me forever -do you remember if that was you guys?? Walking around outside the Va state theater like near the restaurants/cafes? Like before your performance then or were you inside the theater an hour or two prior to your show?? I need to know if that was you guys!!lol
T.M: Yup, that was probably us. We usually walk around the town getting food or whatever right up to the shows.
Q#34:Miguel says: Btw, did you know that John Cleese considers your name to be funny? (Kevin, Trevor and Brian are his three choices of funny names in an interview, names that are just funny) I saw this in an old recording and thought “hey, wasn’t John Cleese one of Trevor’s idols? does he know about this? let’s ask him!” http://www.youtube.cv=1ni559bHXDgom/watch? Minute 4:45
T.M: Hahaha! I did not know that! That’s awesome! Thanks for pointing it out.
Q#35:Marissa says:Hey Trevor,
I was wondering who you would consider to be your top ten favorite bands?
My top ten consists of Breaking Benjamin, Stone Temple Pilots, Metallica, Alice in Chains,
David Bowie, The Who, Rush, Disturbed, Led Zeppelin, and my absolute favorite band, Nirvana. The reason I’m listing my own favorites is cause I’m also wondering, even if they don’t happen to fall into your top ten, if you happen to like any of the bands I like?
T.M: Mine change all the time. But I’ll just grab 10 that I like alot right now: The Who, WAR, Warren Zevon, Alice in Chains, Parliment Funkadelic, Tool, Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Wu-Tang and Jimi Hendrix
Q#36:Lauren G:) says: Hey Trevor! If you don’t mind my asking, does it ever bother you in all honesty having so many female fans think you’re sexy -(including me :p) and sometimes flirt with you? Are you flattered or do you wish they’d lay off?
T.M: I don’t think ‘bother’ is the right word. But it makes me feel awkward sometimes. I like to try and write back to everyone who writes me, if I can. But I don’t really feel it’s appropriate for me to respond to those. And then I feel bad for ignoring those posts.
Q#37:Clara says: Trevor, this is a retardedly random question, but what is your favorite chick flick? And what do you think of -if you’ve ever seen -A Walk to Remember??
Also, another random, from one Aries to another, do you believe in astrology at all? Not the newspaper horoscope predictions, but like the information on signs personality traits and compatibility?
T.M: I really like the ‘Step Up’ movies. Darren was staying at my place for a month this spring and we rented one as a joke. Then we got obsessed with them and rented all of the other ones. On the second day we came into the video store, the guy who worked there said “So are you guys like in a dance troupe or something?” And we were like “I didn’t even know those really existed!”
Q#38:Toby says: Hey Trevor, first of all: I love WKUK and you have all provided me with countless laughs. My questions are:
1.) should I expect the WKUK movie to be released in 2013 or 2014?
2.) will you be doing anything else with Sam, Timmy, Zach, and Darren after the movie?
3.) when you tour next could you PLEASE come to Columbus? I’d love to see you guys all live!
T.M: 1) Hopefully it will be 2013 – but it could be 2014. 2) We plan to all continue doing stuff together. 3) We did a show in Columbus this spring! But we’ll probably come back (if not this fall, next spring.)
Q#39:Allison says: Hey Trevor! I was wondering, are there any characters from your sketches that were extra fun to play, or if there were any characters that you didn’t play but wish you could have? And what sketch did you guys have the most fun filming?
Also, you should totally come to Pittsburgh on your tour. That’d be tight, and it would kind of make my life. No pressure or anything.
Oh, also, I think it’s really funny when people ask you for advice on their personal problems xD
T.M: I liked playing my business man character a lot. I always had fun being that guy. And the Devil in “Opus” was fun too. There’s a bunch of them that were fun. I also liked playing the old lady teacher in the “Teacher’s Union” sketch and the old man in the town hall scene of Civil War on Drugs. We usually play in Philadelphia when we tour, but we should hit Pittsburgh once to switch things up!
Q#40:Paul Edward Cuminale says: Hey, i just wanted to let you know that I saw Miss March in theatres and I loved it from the moment I saw it. I have too questions, were you bummed out about how the movie did in it’s run? And I’ve read that you refrain from swearing due to your OCD, which was interesting to me because in Miss March you say “cock” but you’ve never said the F word. I think that’s really interesting and I’d like to know more about how the word cock doesn’t bother you but the F word does. If you wouldn’t mind. Thanks. – Paul.
T.M: I was bummed out a little that people didn’t seem to like it at first. But then we had to go and write season 4 so I couldn’t really dwell on it too much. And yeah, there’s not really a whole lot of rhyme or reason to my OCD about words.
Q#41:Danzilla says: If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
T.M: The cast of ‘Step Up’.
