[via press release from IFC]

The Kids are back and funnier than ever with their fifth and final farewell season


The award-winning debauched comedy troupe, The Whitest Kids U' Know, returns to IFC this spring with ten all-new 30-minute episodes premiering on Friday, April 15 at 10:30 PM ET/PT.

In the past four seasons, The Whitest Kids U' Know has built up a devoted and fervent following while also impressing the critics - Entertainment Weekly hailed it as "bizarre, edgy, and hilarious," while the San Francisco Chronicle enthused "WKUK wallows frequently in potty-mouth humor and somehow makes it seem almost sophisticated." The series pushes sketch comedy to a whole new level of depraved genius and this farewell season ups the ante like never before.

This season, Trevor, Zach, Sam, Darren and Timmy are providing sardonic cracks on politics, gender, suburbia, and sex while featuring some of their most creative, hilarious, and often shocking material to date. Fans can expect to meet a whole new cast of characters including sex phone worker "Baked Beans"; world class Didgeradoo player "Sal Rosenberg"; child do-gooder "Little Hitler" and many more. The Kids will also feature commercials for some of their latest absurd inventions like the children's fashion accessory "the Finger Ring"; the next level in nerf combat, the "Nerf Nuke"; and nicotine replacement device "Nic-O-Dick." Additionally, each episode of this farewell season will end with a segment of an extended re-imagining of the Civil War as a war on drugs (as only the Kids could do).

The troupe's jolting popularity has made their story the stuff of web legend. Their earliest viral videos became instant web sensations - among YouTube's top-ranked (more than 5 million views for Abe Lincoln and counting!), a CollegeHumor fave, a festival pick (winner of the 2006 Aspen Comedy Festival Best Sketch Comedy Troupe Award), and deemed one of �10 Comics to Watch' by Variety.

The Whitest Kids U' Know is executive produced by Jim Biederman (The Kids in the Hall, The Tom Green Show, The Howard Stern Radio Show). For IFC, Christine Lubrano, Debbie DeMontreux and Jennifer Caserta serve as Executive Producers.
