TV-sketch heroes, The Whitest Kids U’ Know, will be stepping away from the camera to bring their sardonic flavor of comedy to the live stage.
Championed for their edgy and hilarious commentary on complacent suburbia, the New York City comedy troupe will be performing at various theatres around the country. While only East Coast dates are available for purchase right now, the troupe plans to add Midwest, South, and West Coast dates according to their website.
The Whitest Kids U’ Know camp have been relatively quiet since their IFC series finale in 2011 and their feature film, “The Civil War on Drugs,” set in the Civil War era which is pretty much about a homeless kid trying to get Abe Lincoln to legalize weed. But we’ve been hearing rumblings of more and more activities happening from the crew lately so expect more of news as the year progresses.
