Cregger was born and raised in Arlington, Virginia. He performed in various comedy and music groups there before moving to Brooklyn, New York where he joined forces with Moore and Sam Brown to start The Whitest Kids U' Know.
When he was in high school he was in an improv troupe, which was called The Nation of Improv. They would go around and do shows at malls and other high school auditoriums.
Cregger and his friends formed the WKUK comedy troupe in 2000 while still in college. Later on, he met Darren Trumeter while shooting an independent film and asked him to join them. Trumeter became the second of two later additions to the troupe, the first being Timmy Williams .
Cregger, along with the troupe, garnered great success while performing live in New York City at LES music venue Pianos and on the internet. This led to an invitation in 2006 to the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. The troupe won the award for Best Sketch Group and attracted the attention of many Hollywood executives.
The Whitest Kids U' Know ran for five seasons first on FUSE and then on IFC.
He directed his second feature film with Moore called The Civil War on Drugs. It had a limited theatrical release and was ultimately aired during the fifth season of WKUK.
He tours with the WKUK frequently and performs in live shows. He has participated in several independent movies.
He starred in the TBS show Wrecked.
