They call themselves the Whitest Kids U Know, but we dunno — we know some pretty white dudes.

The Whitest Kids U Know are a sketch comedy team that's not happy until you squirm uncomfortably and mutter, "Oh no he didn't" several times before the night's out. They have a huge stoner following, which might explain some of their so-stupid-they're-funny bits, like the businessman who shows up at a meeting with an Asian hooker handcuffed to him, or The Boner Song. Fans can follow them on the Independent Film Channel, where they have a show on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. Written by and for white guys in their 20s, expect lots of jokes about sex, drinking and what happens to naughty bits, both male and female. See them at the Improv in Centro Ybor at 9:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $14 at 1600 E Eighth Ave. in Ybor City Or call (813) 864-4000. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne wynne@tampabay.com
