Samuel Kelly "Sam" Brown (born October 26, 1981) is an American actor, comedian and writer. He is best known as a member of the sketch comedy troupe The Whitest Kids U' Know, founded by Trevor Moore and himself. The troupe had their own show on IFC, which ended its 5th and final season on June 17, 2011.

Early life and career[edit]

In high school (Sandwich High School), Sam made a movie for his calculus class as part of a group. Following through with his passion, Sam enrolled at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.[1]

While working New York City comedy clubs, he met Trevor Moore, who also attended SVA and lived in the same dormitory.[1] 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.[2] 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. On the commentary for season 2, Sam Brown states that he hates Trevor, and wanted it to be posted on Wikipedia.[3]

In 2008, Brown and fellow Whitest Kids troupe member Timmy Williams guest starred in an episode of the Adult Swim series Fat Guy Stuck In Internet.
