Hey everyone!! Here’s another round of Monday Question (even though I didn’t really get around to it till Tuesday.) Thanks for participating! If you have anything else you’d like to know about WKUK, my new album, upcoming shows or whatever, leave them in the comments section and I’ll try to get to them by next Monday!
Q1: VaginalBloodFart says: Do you still do the carlton when not being solicited by people making videos?
A: Trevor: Haha! Not so much. (Here’s the video he’s talking about. I’m somewhere in the middle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K8j9OR8jtk )
Q2: Victoria says: Would you please tell my five year old hi. His name is Reese and he thinks you are so funny. He knows wayyyy more WKUK sketches than any five year old should know. He wants to dress up like sex robot for Halloween. Lol.
Also… We would love for you guys to make a stop in Tennessee. We like to laugh down here too
Thanks for the laughs. Can’t wait for the new stuff.
A: Trevor: Hey Reese! Thansk for watching the show! Hopefully we’ll be in Tennessee sometime in the fall.
Q3: Glen says: Anecdote then question. On memorial day I made a hammock out of hemp, then attempted to smoke it. I past out from lack of oxygen but not in the hammock I just smoked. OK now question. How was your memorial day? Oh and do you prefer “Slam Dunk Ernest” or “Ernest Goes to Jail? Get at me bra !
A: Trevor: I don’t believe that story. My Memorial Day was good. I watched a lot of Teen Mom and grilled and artichoke. I prefer ‘Ernest Goes to Jail’ but maybe only because I haven’t seen ‘Slam Dunk Ernest’.
Q4: Aaron says: Hey Trevor! Huge fan yours. If you are ever in central Florida and want somewhere to “mellow out” get at me. It would be an honor. My question is this: How many takes, on average, does it take you to not laugh during a skit? I mean, I sometimes catch you guys cracking a smile and you just roll with it.
A: Trevor: Thanks Aaron! We just did a show in Orlando a couple months ago. But we’ll probably be back sometime this year! As for the amount of takes, it depends … some people have a harder time not laughing then others. I’m usually pretty good about not laughing … except for the ‘Huggins Family Car Dealership’ sketch. I think that was the hardest one for me to get through, for some reason.
Q5: lara star says: Hey Trevor
while going through a crazy breakup a yr ago,my cousins showed me WKUK to cheer me up and since then..I’ve seen literally EVERY single sketch from the show,and in some odd way ,it definitely got me through my breakup..SO THANK YOU!
A) so,my 10 cousins and i are all very close,im the 2nd oldest (21),and we all have the same dry/crazy humor as you and the guys from WKUK,and we all think we deserve a weird late night reality show about my entire family lol and thought it’d be perfect if you’d be the ryan seacrest to our family as he is to the Kardashians,and be our producer for our show lol WOULD YOU EVER CONSIDER THAT??(its worth a shot lol) or EVER PRODUCING ANYTHING? you’re so talented.
B) Will you ever make a stop in Texas for the tour? im in san antonio,but Austin would be a perfect stop for you guys,i’d totally make a trip to ATX. also,if you ever need help booking in TX,my father is well known musician,bar owner,local magazine creator,and business graduate,who’d love to help get u over here.
C) On your twitter you mentioned,”Cocaine Mondays”…is that something you still do? if so,maybe you should try coming to TX on a monday!!!! (jk,kinda)
D.) What type of music are u into? for some reason,everytime i listen to folk,such as Conor Oberst,M.Ward…etc. i see us,like hanging out on a Monday,jamming out ;D
A: Trevor: Thanks! Lara! Glad the show could help you through your break up. As for producing your show … I don’t know, that sounds like a lot of work and I just ate and I wanted to play Diablo 3… B) We’ll definitely be doing a show in Austin soon. We were going to do one amonth or so ago- but we had to reschdule it. C) I don’t really do ‘Cocaine Mondays’ anymore … but ‘DMT Thursdays’ is alive and well! D) The music I listen to changes a lot. I get obsessed with bands and listen to them non stop for a couple months, then get bored and move on. Right now, I’m listening to a lot of War.
Q6: Cate says: Hi! First, I feel I must tell you that I absolutely love the Whitest Kids. I was like, 15 when the show premiered, and I’ve been a fan ever since. You guys are fucking awesome, and it’s impossible to be in a shitty mood after watching an episode. I’ve actually been watching your guys’ commentary on the episodes now, haha which may sound like a waste of time, but you guys are amusing.
And secondly, would you guys be able to come down to Arizona while touring? Tucson, to be specific. In all honesty, it sucks dick here, but I would LOVE to see you guys! It would be awesome.
A: Trevor: Thanks so much Cate! That’s nice to hear! It’s awesome that some people have stayed with the show since way back on Fuse! I’m not sure of our fall tour dates/ cities yet. But we’ll be posting them soon. And hopefully we’ll come by Tucson!
Q7: Valerie says: Hey Trevor, Just wanted to say you’re super awesome!
Do you get asked how tall you are a lot? My fiance is 6’8”, he gets bugged about it everywhere we go. Also, do you watch any other comedians or musicians, like Bo Burnham, Dereck Comedy/Childish Gambino, or Tim Minchin?
Thanks to much for taking the time to talk to all of us!
A: Trevor: I do get it a lot. But it doesn’t bother me or anything. I honestly forget that I am tall most of the time because I just always assume that everyone is shorter than me so I don’t think about it. It’s jarring when I run into someone who is taller than me.
Q8: Bella says: Hello Trevor! How are you? Did you really hit Zach with the phone book? It looked real. Did any of you guys ever get injured by doing your stunts? From the WKUK guys who’s your best friend? What’s your favorite movie and actor? Which Shakespearian role would you like to play? Who directs your musical videos? Thank you. Love you; you’re so talented, intelligent and handsome. All the best!
A: Trevor: Hello Bella! I’m good! Yes, I really hit Zach with the phone book. We’ve all gotten pretty injured doing sketches. I hurt myself jumping into that bookshelf during ‘Bigfoot Vs. Gravedigger’, Sam broke his arm during ‘Suicide Show’, Darren broke his hand doing ‘Space Potatoes’ live, Zach had to go to the hospital for poison ivy during the Civil War on Drugs… I don’t know that Timmy’s ever gotten hurt though. Unless you’re counting feelings.
Q9: Heidi Hallas says: I have to admit I have only just heard of WKUK last year and completely laughed so hard I peed, HA! I absolutely love the roll reversals portraying your self’s as lady’s from a guys perspective at times. I mean come on who dose not like foul mouthed Douchebaggery? I think you guy’s have a natural chemistry that just works, I know you guy’s travel to San Fran, Have you guy’s ever considered touring in Long beach? Oo yeah and the sketches you guy’s do are hilarious SERIOUSLY, do you guy’s ever consider doing real life situations and problems in your sketches and manipulating them into comedy? you know like the ones that are a fine line between ( Ooopsie did i just say that) and ( Officer I swear I was not smuggling midgets in pinatas). Sorry I have a warped twisted mind Any way’s a BIG thank’s to you guy’s for giving me a reason to piss my pant’s with reason. You deff have fan’s here in LBC! xOxO!
A: Trevor: Thannks Heidi! We’ve never done a show out at Long Beach, but we do shows in LA from time to time. I’ll post our next one here and at whitestkids.com We’re hoping to do a WKUK show sometime this summer in LA. Sometimes we will do sketches based off of real life situations or people we know in real life. The ‘Boiler Room Repairman’ sketch was based off of a IT guy that I know. And “Dad Will Take Care of It’ I based off of my Dad and pretty much everyone else in the world’s Dad.
Q10: IS says: Dear Trevor can you please explain to me talking in general and seriously why if some men hate their wives, are not attracted to them anymore, feel castrated and limited by them, are sick and tired of them, etc. They don’t divorce them and instead they cheat on them. Like Sam’s character on the blue aliens sketch. Why can’t they just get a divorce and be free to do whatever they want? Please enlighten me about male nature. (I’m not married or anything like that I just don’t understand this)
A: Trevor: I’m assuming it’s either because they have children and don’t want to disrupt their lives by putting them through a divorce or that they’re frightened of the financial aspect of separating from a spouse (alimony, child support, splitting property rights, etc.)
Q11: Amanda B says: Hey, budski! Here’s a question for you… What’s the worst heckling you’ve experienced on stage?? Do you have a FAVORITE time you’ve been heckled? Also, any favorite memory of one of the OTHER WKUK being heckled? … So I have this guy who I was friends with in 7th grade…now we’re 27-28 and we’ve re-connected. We were rogging for awhile even though he’s got a girlfriend. One night after doin’do’do’doin’it’doin’it I told him he should probably stop seeing her. He blew up at me and told ME I was being “disrespectful to his relationship.” SOthe question is…On a scale of 1 to fucking Micheal Lohan, how huge of a soaring douche-hole is he, AND, just exactly how hard should I kick him in the nutsac?
A: Trevor: We toured with the band ‘Flogging Molly’ for six weeks before we had a tv show and their fans would throw beer bottles at us and scream through our sets. That was the worst. I don’t really have a favorite time being heckled. Because it’s usually a drunk person being annoying. And, I would guess you should just stop sleeping with that guy. Sounds like a queef.
Q12: Miguel says: Why do you think people ask you about things that happen in their lives? Do you have a history as a counselor? Do girls tell you you’re a good listener? And also: What do you think would happen if you pour insect repellent over an insect?
A: Trevor: I am a licensed internet life counselor. I know exactly what everyone should do with their lives at all times. That’s why. My advice is always stellar. Also, if you poured insect repellent over an insect, the insect would be repelled from itself and constantly shooting around the room – therefore giving you an element that you could develop a perpetual motion machine from.
Q13: frankenfi says: Did you go to SVA right after high school? What did you major in and did it ever change during your time in college?
A: Trevor: I went to 4 different colleges. I started out as a Broadcasting major at VCU but ended up as a film major at SVA.
Q14: Ellie says: I’m sorry Trevor but I need your advice on this situation, but this girl and I have never really gotten along that well, after she deliberately ignored me one time I called her a bitch on twitter putting her on blast -NOT saying that was the most mature thing but at least I didn’t tag her -(neither of us follow each other) -two of my followers retweeted me so she could see it. She then harasses me with Facebook messages saying I need to grow up and stop caring what people think. She’s 23, I’m 20, how is she more mature then I am by bombarding me with Facebook messages then blocking me so she has the last word? Also doesn’t it sound like SHE’s the one who cares what people think?
I’m sorry to bombard you with my problems but I wouldn’t to know YOUR thoughts on this scenario even if you think I’m a dumbass cuz I value your opinions more than most peoples
A: Trevor: Fights shouldn’t happen via a social network. They should happen in parking lots behind grocery stores at 3 -5 in the morning. Each girl getting to chose a weapon she specializes in. Nothing with moving parts, however. Chains, pipes and knives. No witnesses. Neither of them telling anyone else where and when the fight is - or even that it’s taking place. The victor should remove the fallen’s head, hands and any other identifying parts and never speak a word of the fight to anyone as long as she still draws breath. Either that or just block the bitch.
Q15: Lorena says: Hello Trevor. Big fan here with a few questions.
If you’ve ever experienced severe anxiety and OCD, how did you or how are you coping with the disorders?
Do your fans ever inspire you and the rest of the WKUK in some way?
If you could star in any one of your favorite movies, which one would it be?
Are there any songs you like that you wish you wrote first?
Who do you relate to most, Beavis or Butthead?
A: Trevor: I’ve had OCD since I was a kid so I’m fairly used to it at this point. It’s annoying. But it’s something that’s been there, being annoying for decades. So it’s an expected annoyance. I’m always surprised by how loyal a lot of the WKUK fans have been. It seems like very time we tour we meet kids who’ve driven 5 hours or more to come see some of the shows and that always blows me a way and really makes me wish we’d rehearsed more J .. I don’t know that I would have wanted to star in any of my favorite movies .. because then it would be weird if I said that it was my favorite movie. Anyone who says their favorite movie is one that they’re in is a dick. …. I wish I’d written the ‘Happy Birthday’ song. $$$$$$$$$ … And I think I relate to Butthead more.
Q16: Mary-Kate G. says: Hey Trevor you are the shit ! (: I follow you on twitter and I’ve read a few posts about you being a vegetarian, are you one? Also I see a lot of Ancient Aliens references, are you a fan of the show? If you are have you ever met Giorgio A. Tsoukalos (the dude with the crazy hair)?
A: Trevor: Thanks Mary-Kate! I am a vegetarian – but not really for moral reasons. One summer when we were shooting, it was constantly like 90 -100 degrees in NYC and I felt gross and sluggish all the time. So I decided to not eat meat for a week and see if I felt better. I did, so I just decided to keep going with it. I do love the Acinet Aliens show, but never really was aware that we’d referenced the show at all (besides just sort of making fun of the History Channel’s penchant for science-fiction programming in general.) And no, I’ve never met the crazy haired guy.
