Who are Trevor Moore’s wife and children?
Trevor’s wife Aimee Carlson is a producer and movie editor by profession. The 42-year-old met her comedian husband when he was selected for the NBC page program. Aimee was a fellow page at the time.
After few years of dating, the pair got married on October 9, 2010, and have a son named August.
Trevor preferred to keep his family life under wraps. He rarely posted any pictures with his wife and son on his socials. Moreover, Aimee’s social media accounts are private too. As a result, we’re not quite sure how old August actually is.
Aimee, who is a Virginia native, has worked on projects like Level Up (2019), Cloak & Dagger (2018) and Warehouse 13: Grand Designs (2012) among others.

‘Whitest Kids U’Know’ members pay tribute
On August 7, members of The Whitest Kids U Know – Zach Cregger and Sam Brown – issued the following statement following Trevor’s death:
“Early this morning, we learned that we lost our brother, our collaborator and the driving force behind WKUK. 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”
The heartfelt statement further read, “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.”
Trevor, Zach, Sam, Timmy Williams, and Darren Trumeter were the founding members of the comedy troupe. The group started off in New York but became popular nationwide very quickly. Just last year they launched an official Youtube channel that now features all of their popular sketches among other content.
The comedy collective was also working on their first animated feature film, Mars, which is due to release next year.
