Trevor Moore, head writer for "The Whitest Kids U' Know" recorded his first solo one-hour special, "High In Church", at The Gramercy Theatre in New York City. Accompanied by a live band, dancing girls and music videos, Trevor performs an hour of brand-new sketches and songs spanning all musical genres. Moore's hilarious and catchy songs cover everything from gay marriage, underage drinking, bullying and a parallel Kitty Universe where all of human history is repeated with cats instead of people.
This special is primarily musical comedy, which tends towards repetition and strained rhyme schemes, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. For fans of Whitest Kids U Know, it is familiar territory. For those who are not, I recommend a quick YouTube search. Trevor Moore is the high school stoner who never grew up but actually worked hard and became a successful comedian. His comedy is equal parts self deprecating and irreverent, but not at all misanthropic at its heart. At times he delivers exceedingly biting and clever lines in a happy, oblivious tone, and at other times dumb stoner jokes in a dark, serious tone. I burst out laughing quite a bit, mostly in the first half or so, but I stayed entertained throughout. Trevor is no Rich Pryor but he's worked on his chops as a solo act since WKUK and Miss March.
