Debuting on Comedy Central in 1997 and currently in its 16th Season, “South Park” has won 4 Emmy Awards, as well as the coveted Peabody Award. The same year “South Park” debuted, Parker wrote, directed, and starred in the film Orgazmo. Two years later, Parker and Stone released the critically-acclaimed feature film, South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut. The musical, which Parker directed and co-wrote earned an Oscar nomination for best song (“Blame Canada”) and a NY Film Critics Award. In 2004, the pair returned to theaters with Team America: World Police, an action movie co-written and directed by Parker that starred a cast of marionettes. A long-time dream of Parker’s was to write a musical for Broadway and together with Matt Stone and Bobby Lopez (Avenue Q, Frozen) they created the satirical classic smash hit; The Book of Mormon, which went on to win nine Tony Awards including “Best Musical.” Trey Parker is originally from Evergreen, Colorado.
