Tonight, the final episode of the Whitest Kids U’ Know airs on IFC and I’d just like to say ‘thank you’ to all of you out there who have tuned in week after week, sent our sketches around youtube and told everyone about our little show.
It’s hard to believe that its been 5 years since we debuted on the Fuse network ( right before Pants Off Dance Off! ) and so many of you have been so kind and supportive since day one.
I remember doing a live interview on Steve’s Untitled Rock Show, only one week after the show came out, and being shocked that so many people who liked the show actually came down to the studio to say ‘Hi’ and stand outside the window (in the rain even!).
When the show moved to IFC, I was, again, shocked by how many of you wrote in saying you were going to add the channel so you could watch our show. And every time we’ve toured, it’s been amazing how nice and cool everybody we’ve met has been. ( Hardly any of you give us a hard time about how crappily rehearsed our live shows are!)
If it wasn’t for so many of you sending our sketches around the Internet, we never would have gotten the show, and if it wasn’t for you guys embracing the show the way you did, we’d never would have been picked up by IFC, and if it wasn’t for how awesome you’ve been to us since then, we’d never have been able to do 5 seasons.
This isn’t the end of the story. We’ll still tour as a troupe, we’ll still make specials and we’re writing a new film as we speak – but we’re getting to the end of a chapter. And it’s been a great chapter thanks to you guys.
Love you all, see you soon
(And a very special thanks to everyone at IFC for putting up with us for all these years. We’d never have been able to make a show this dirty, anywhere else )
