While working New York City comedy clubs, he met Trevor Moore, who also attended SVA and lived in the same dormitory. The two decided to start a comedy troupe. It was in that first semester in college that they created the Whitest Kids U’ Know. Brown since then has graduated with a BFA in Film from SVA, and has served as Associate Producer at ImaginAsianTV. Brown and Moore were later joined by Zach Cregger, Timmy Williams and Darren Trumeter. In the commentary of the “The Whitest Kids U’ Know” season one DVD, the rest of the troupe jokingly state their hate for Sam because he was late the day they were recording the commentary.
