Trey Parker and Matt Stone Talk Tony Wins and Broadway, on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 16th 2011 7:50AM
Trey Parker'South Park' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are no strangers to controversy, having offended just about everyone by now. But now that they're more mature in years, are they in danger of becoming the kind of Establishment figures that they used to mock so mercilessly?

The pair have written a Broadway musical, 'The Book of Mormon,' which has not only been well received by critics, it also picked up nine Tony Awards.

You'd think this would make the Broadway newbies targets of venom in the famously bitchy, backstabbing world of musical theater, but as they told Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), nothing could be further from the truth.

They say that the Broadway community welcomed them with open arms and has been nothing but lovely to them.

Which is more than can be said for their assessment of a rival show. Stone told Stewart about how when they were prepping 'Book' for the stage all everyone else was talking about was 'Spider-Man,' "but that was before anyone had seen what a train wreck it was." Oh, me-ow.

Jimmy Fallon Plays Trey Parker's Teen Ballad 'I Spit on Your Love' (VIDEO)

Trey Parker, Matt Stone on 'Late Night'When Trey Parker and Matt Stone -- the comedy geniuses behind 'South Park' and Broadway's 'The Book of Mormon' -- appeared on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), Jimmy Fallon preferred to focus on creations that would humiliate them. Cue Trey Parker's teen ballads.

The host dug up a "Parker & Goodman" cassette tape titled "Immature (a collection of love ballads for the 80's man)". Of particular interest was the song 'I Spit on Your Love.'

"Oh, no, don't play that ... I was 16!" Parker said. "I've written a lot of good songs, people. This is not one of them." Of course Fallon had to play it.

Over simple piano chords and some percussion (saved for the chorus), Parker and Goodman crooned, "...Here you are telling me you wanta rekindle our old flame / Love isn't just a game / I spit on your love / I spit on your love / And I spit on yoooouuu."

South Park Guys: Mormons 'Really Like' Their New Musical 'The Book of Mormon' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 11th 2011 1:00PM
Trey Parker and Matt Stone were on 'The Daily Show' (weekdays, 11 PM ET on Comedy Central) to promote their new Broadway musical 'The Book of Mormon,' which Jon Stewart has seen and described as "so good it makes me angry."

Another group that could be potentially angered with the satirists' take on the history Mormonism would be the Mormons. But, according to the duo, that hasn't been the case.

"We can tell when Mormons are in the crowd." Parker explained. "Because we'll have references to like Abinadi, a prophet, and they'll go 'oh, Abinadi, they got him in there.'"

Killing Justin Bieber on 'South Park' (VIDEO)

Killing Justin Bieber on 'South Park' Well, at last it's come down to this ... a final battle between good and evil. As long as you define "good and evil" in 'South Park' terms, that is.

On the new episode (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central), we follow the continuing adventures of Eric Cartman as "The Coon." Cartman is a self-styled "Batman-esque" caped crusader, and like the Dark Knight, Eric has very clear-cut ideas about what is right and what is wrong.

As Cartman narrates in full-on, hyperbolic Christian Bale-mode, we get the full info about the evil forces that he opposes. "The Coon's" greatest enemies include the following: "hippies," trendy supermarket chain 'Whole Foods' -- and floppy-haired teen sensation Justin Bieber. Now, Cartman must "take out" his greatest enemy. But is he strong enough to stop Mr. Bieber?

'South Park' Tackles the BP Oil Spill (VIDEO)

'South Park' Tackles the BP Oil SpillYou shouldn't watch the news too often -- the news can be depressing. But you really shouldn't watch the news if you live in 'South Park' (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central). The cartoon series takes on real life events, then turns the volume up to "11." Though it's supposedly just a bunch of crude drawings about foul-mouthed little kids, the show actually confronts the hypocrisy that we see around us every day.

The new episode tackles the British Petroleum oil spill. (With the acronym "BP" being changed to "DP.") Like the rest of us, the kids must watch the news passively, as disaster unfolds around them.

First, "DP" causes a massive drilling accident on the moon. Then, the company unleashes a thousand-foot demon of eternal darkness during another oil spill. (So, it's not that much worse than the horror inflicted on the Gulf Coast in real life ... ahem.)

'South Park' Creators Apologize for Ripping Off CollegeHumor

by PopEater Staff, posted Oct 25th 2010 6:20PM
'South Park' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have apologized for accidentally plagiarizing the website CollegeHumor.

As we reported last week, CollegeHumor writer Dan Gurewitch blogged about the similarities between an Oct. 20 'South Park' spoof of 'Inception' and one that he co-created with David Young. Gurewitch included a line-by-line comparison.

Parker and Stone then confessed to lifting the material, though unconsciously, CNN reports.

"We thought their joke was that a lot of those lines were actually in the movie, showing that the 'Inception' characters didn't even know 'Inception.' That was a mistake, and it was an honest mistake," said Stone. "We're stupid and we just threw it together."

So What Happens on the Post-Censored 'South Park'?

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 28th 2010 4:08PM
South Park'South Park' has been censored before, but not as blatantly as it was for their two-part anniversary episodes '200' and '201.' Even 'The Simpsons' showed their support for the silenced Colorado kids. Tonight is the mid-season finale and the question on possibly everyone's mind is: will Trey Parker and Matt Stone have any further commentary on the entire Muhammed situation?

My guess is that the issue won't even be addressed. Trey Parker and Matt Stone said as much with a public statement on the 'South Park' website. With only one episode to go until their break, they may not want to stir the pot (although pot-stirring is certainly their forté).

'Simpsons' Defends 'South Park' (Sort of)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 26th 2010 1:45PM
'The Simpsons'It's not uncommon to watch an episode of 'South Park' and wonder, how the heck did they get away with that? What would it take for the show to get censored? Well, it happens every so often, and Sunday, the biggest, longest-running cartoon franchise on TV showed 'South Park' its support.

In the opening credits of last night's 'Simpsons,' Bart wrote "South Park -- We'd stand beside you if we weren't so scared" on the chalkboard (check out the Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed blog for the pic). 'The Simpsons' has taken its share of swipes at political and cultural targets in the past. So what could make Matt Groening and company so scared?

Jon Stewart Sings 'Go F**k Yourself' to Muslim Extremists (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 23rd 2010 12:30PM
Jon Stewart encored his song "Go F**k Yourself" on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), aiming it at Muslim extremists who sent death threats to 'South Park' creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker for their portrayal of the prophet Muhammad in the last two episodes of the cartoon.

"By now, those of you with access to media have probably heard that our good friends and colleagues Matt and Trey got in a little bit of trouble during the airing of their weekly animated series 'South Park.' And by trouble, I mean veiled death threats," Stewart said, then launching into a gospel-tinged kiss-off of anyone "threatening death in the name of religion or politics."

Watch the video after the jump.

'South Park' - '201' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 22nd 2010 8:36AM
(S14E06) This episode was a continuation of the 200th episode and definitely a treat for those who have been following 'South Park' for the past 14 years. There were a myriad of references to several famous episodes and while the ending could have been better (I would have tried to incorporate Imaginationland), the two-parter was satisfying overall.

'South Park's' '200' Continues This Week

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 19th 2010 11:29AM
South ParkThere are very minor spoilers in the following paragraphs. You have been warned.

For those who watched this past week's episode of 'South Park' titled '200,' you know that the episode ended on a cliffhanger. However, there was no indicator that it would be continued into the next episode as the words "to be continued" nor scenes from next week nor any indicator were anywhere to be found. It would be just like Trey Parker and Matt Stone to pull a prank like this (such as the 'Not Without My Anus' gag in the first season).

The good news is that the story most definitely will continue this week in an episode titled "201," which makes sense since it's the 201st episode. Ain't It Cool posted some information about the episode in "inviso-text." Feel free to hightlight the text and get a clue about what's going to happen, unless of course you're spoiler-phobic.

Of course, this could all be another massive prank by the creators. Find out on Wednesday.

'South Park' - '200' Recap

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 15th 2010 2:46PM
200 celebrities verus 'South Park'(S14E05) No one, but no one, takes on obnoxious celebrity behavior with more gleeful scorn than 'South Park.' They've taken on everyone from presidents to b-movie actors and the world's biggest rock stars, and most every time, they have been right on target. It's what has made 'South Park' beloved to audiences and drawn the ire of the celebrities themselves.

So to celebrate episode 200th of the show (called '200'), show creators Matt Stone and 'Trey Parker decided to bring back every celebrity they have ever made fun of and take them on all at once (see the incomplete list of those appearing on the show below). The result is a bizarre episode, even by 'South Park' standards (if you still have it on DVR, there are a few plot spoilers ahead).

Here's a Preview of 'South Park's' 200th Episode

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 11th 2010 1:27PM
This coming Wednesday brings us the 200th episode of 'South Park.' When the show reached 100 episodes, there wasn't really a big celebration other than a mention at the end. This time it looks like co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are celebrating their own longevity by returning every celebrity their show has ever insulted for a class action lawsuit against the town.

A special website has been set up in promotion of the event in which fans can upload their own videos. Trey and Matt have even been interviewed for this milestone by The New York Times.

Two hundred episodes is a long time for a series to last with its original creators still running the show, particularly when the show only produces 14 episodes per year. Comedy Central has released a video preview of the 200th episode. Which 'South Park' moment has been your favorite?

Angry Ginger Kid Directs His Ginger Rage at 'South Park'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 25th 2010 4:08PM
The "Ginger Kid" has become another milestone in the Internet lexicon and apparently, he's found out that 'South Park' is not only about to take another crack at his people, but also at him.

YouTube's "CopperCab" spotted a commercial satirizing his famous "Gingers Do Have Souls" video. So he posted a stinging rebuttal to the creators of 'South Park' warning them not to air the episode or else, I guess, he would use his awesome pale skin powers to reflect sunbeams directly into Trey Parker and Matt Stone's retinas.

'South Park' Will Skewer Tiger Woods

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 15th 2010 9:30AM
South ParkWednesday will be bringing us the season premiere of 'South Park,' and the topic of the episode has already been revealed. Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be raking Tiger Woods over the coals along with the concept of sex addiction in America.

The season premieres of 'South Park' tend to be a little more thoughtful than the rest of the season, usually because Trey and Matt have had some break time to think about things. The last season premiere brought us the Jonas Brothers and "Mister Mouse," which was a highlight of the season along with 'Margaritaville.'

On a related note, the show is only five episodes away from its 200th, which will be broadcast next month. Their 100th episode dealt with the mood of the country after 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq and ended with a sing-off between a rock singer (Stan's father) and a country singer. Hopefully, the 200th will be equally as entertaining and insightful. Set your schedule accordingly.
