Early life

Zach Cregger was born and raised in Arlington, Virginia. He performed in various comedy and music groups there before moving to Brooklyn, New York where he joined forces with Moore and Sam Brown to start The Whitest Kids U' Know.[2]

When he was in high school he was in an improv troop, which was called The Nation of Improv. They would go around and do shows at malls and other high school auditoriums.[3]

He met Moore and Sam Brown while he was studying at SVA. They were staying in the same dorm. They met Timmy Williams on 9/11 who was on the other side of that same dorm. He graduated from The School of Visual Arts with a BFA and majored in Film.[4][5]

Cregger and his friends formed the WKUK comedy troupe in 2000 while still in College. Later on he met Darren Trumeter while shooting an independent film and asked him to join them.[6]

Cregger along the troupe garnered great success while performing live in NYC at famed LES music venue Pianos and also on the internet. This led to an invitation in 2006 to the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. The troupe did not disappoint, winning the award for Best Sketch Group and attracting the attention of many Hollywood executives.[7]

He had the WKUK show successfully running for five seasons first on FUSE and then on IFC.[8]
