Comedian Trevor Moore Dead at 41—'Remember the Countless Moments of Laughter'

Friends of comedian Trevor Moore have asked fans to "remember the countless moments of laughter," following his death.

The multi-talented Moore—who was also an actor, writer, director, producer, and musician—died aged 41 on Friday evening after being involved in an unspecified accident, his agent told Deadline.

His family released a statement in tribute, writing: "We are devastated by the loss of my husband, best friend and the father of our son.

"He was known as a writer and comedian to millions, and yet to us he was simply the center of our whole world.

"We don't know how we'll go on without him, but we're thankful for the memories we do have that will stay with us forever. We appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone.

"This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of grieving."

Moore found success with his comedy troupe, "The Whitest Kids U Know (WKUK)," and periodically featured on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, often pranking unsuspecting members of the public.

Zach Cregger and Sam Brown, Moore's co-creators, also released a statement following their friend's death.

"Early this morning, we learned that we lost our brother, our collaborator and the driving force behind WKUK," it read.

"He was our best friend, and we speak for all of us in saying that the loss of Trevor is unimaginable. We are heartbroken and our grief pales in comparison to the loss felt by his wife and son.

"On behalf of WKUK, we ask for privacy during our time of profound grief, and strength for his family who are dealing with the impossible thought of living life without him.

"Our hope is that friends, fellow artists, and fans that loved him will not focus on his death, but will remember the countless moments of laughter he gave them."

Moore is survived by his wife, Aimee Carlson, and his son, August.

In a poignant Instagram post in April last year, Moore wrote of how he was "incredibly grateful for this experience of being alive."

"I married the love of my life who I met at the very young age of 23. And my best friend right now is my son who is the kindest, most mischievous and funniest person I've ever met," he said.

"This has really been the best. And I can't thank all of you enough for letting me experience this. I love you. From here on out, it's all a victory lap."
