A new sketch comedy show is premiering on Fuse on March 20 – The Whitest Kids U Know. I happen to know some of these guys, and can tell you from first-hand experience that they’re funny as hell. The boys won Best Sketch Group at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 2006, and they’ve done an incredibly popular run at the too-hip-for-Faraci Piano’s here in New York City.
If you live in New York or Los Angeles you’ve almost certainly seen their mugs plastered on billboards, cabs and phone booths – Fuse must be using their whole marketing budget to get the word out. I’m going to help out a bit here on CHUD due to the fact that there’s been a dearth of great sketch comedy on TV for a very long time. So here are two heads up:
One – if you get Fuse on Demand on your cable system, you can see the first episode early. Simply go to Music>Fuse>Exclusives and you can see episode one and some behind the scenes business.
Two – if you don’t get Fuse on Demand, you can check out some of their sketches at their website www.whitestkids.com. Below is one of my favorites from the past (the Fuse sketches have higher production value), which was probably their most popular for a while: The Hitler Rap.
