    They still haven't found a line they won't cross. The latest taboo busted wide open by "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone is religion. It's a comedic assault on religious dogma called "The Book of Mormon" and it's currently the hottest show on Broadway. Steve Kroft talks to the pair about that musical comedy and brings "60 Minutes" cameras to observe the creative process that's kept the foul-mouthed school boys of "South Park" at the top of the basic cable television heap for years.

    Shortly after “South Park’s” midseason finale aired last week, fans (and many television critics) predicted that the end was near for the long-running series. After all, a cynical episode framed around the notion of that we’re all getting too old to appreciate more of the same must mean the show is on the way out, right? Wrong.

    The profane and hysterical "The Book of Mormon" took home nine Tony Awards on Sunday including the prize for best musical, a considerable achievement for a pair of first-time Broadway playwrights known more for their raunchy cartoons featuring potty-mouthed kids. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the Emmy Award-winning "South Park," found a kindred soul in Robert Lopez, who co-wrote the Tony-winning "Avenue Q," and all three found themselves with plenty of awards when they collaborated to gently mock Mormons and send-up Broadway itself. Collecting the best musical prize, a subdued Parker, who tied Josh Logan of "South Pacific"...

    South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone describe their Broadway Musical, The Book of Mormon, as an “atheist love letter to religion.” The show, which opens March 24, tells the story of two young missionaries who travel to a troubled area of Africa — beset by AIDS, poverty, a warlord who likes to force clitoridectomies, and just, overall, lots of despair — to spread their faith. We spoke with the pair at length about just why they love and are obsessed with Mormons, how Star Wars is a religion, and the future of South Park.

    No one has seen Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s musical comedy “The Book of Mormon” yet. It doesn’t start previews on Broadway until the end of February. But early chatter from the Mormon community is already divided between those eager to see the show, and a more conservative group who views the play as another instance of persecution against their faith. John Dehlin, 41, of Logan, Utah has already purchased his tickets to the Broadway musical and will be flying to New York with a group of 10 people (only one of whom isn’t Mormon) on March 25th. He says...

    Throughout civilization, there have been those who have attempted to find humor at the expense of others. This has been the case in American history as well. People who are different because of their social class, skin color, ethnic or religious backgrounds have often been the butt of the most vile so-called humor. However, supposedly, we now live in a time of tolerance. Yet it is clear there are certain groups who apparently are fair game to be the recipients of mean-spirited attacks which have little to do with levity. Recently, an episode of South Park -- a cartoon which...

He was killed by a radical Islamist in 2004 after making a movie that featured a beaten, naked Muslim woman covered in writings from the Quran. The post includes a photograph of van Gogh...

    "South Park" fans take for granted that the show consistently shocks and amuses in an environment flooded with distractions and imitators. Watching the Comedy Central series' Emmy-winning ninth season reinforces why. Creators and former CU-Boulder film students Trey Parker and Matt Stone position their pop culture texts violently against the grain, smartly engaging their characters in taboo topics of race, gender and sexuality. The duo's biggest asset? Their writing encompasses more more than shock value or self-amusement. Yes, potty humor and cheap shots fly left and right, attacking soft-skulled liberals and myopic conservatives alike. But the boys always make an...

"Me and Matt love to argue," says Parker, "but in general our sense of humour is pretty much alike." "We never have that problem where I want something one way and he wants it another," Stone adds. "It never happens, and, when it does, we usually realise there was a flaw in the idea in the first place." As ever, their surrogates are Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman,...

And since most of DUmmieland consists of such conspiracy theorists, Trey Parker and Matt Stone were also talking about THEM. This was one of the BEST episodes of South Park and if you missed it, you can catch a clip of the latter part of the show at HOT AIR. Of course, the DUmmies were quite upset over being mocked by South Park especially since many of them were misled into believing that the show would buy into their paranoid view about President Bush before...

"It's not like we have a formula," says Trey, "but I think one of the reasons this show has survived is that it has a big heart at its center. Other cartoon shows have people crap on each other and make racist jokes. But I don't think people tune in for that. I just don't think a show lasts for 10 years without a heart."

    When Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of the noxious South Park, see a taboo, they hasten to break it. So they were sure to weigh in on the controversy over those Danish cartoons depicting the Muslim prophet Muhammad. The animated South Park, featuring foul-mouthed children, had long presented Jesus as a sympathetic but comical character. The creators were fresh off a series savaging Scientology as a cult of child-molesters. So Islam was ripe for ridicule. But at the climax of the two-part series—in which the politically correct citizens of South Park literally buried their heads in the sand so...

    "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have signed a three-year production deal with Paramount Pictures, which released their most recent film, the 2004 puppet comedy "Team America: World Police."

    South Park is my absolute FAVORITE TV show. I always look forward to flipping on the tube at 9:30 PM with a glass of rum in hand to watch that show. Even if it is a re-run I still love watching South Park. Therefore it was with great anticipation that I watched this season's NEW episode last night. If you missed it, you missed a gem. It was a satire on media misinformation about Hurricane Katrina along with panic over Global Warming. What happened was that Cartman and Stan accidentally caused the collapse of a dam that flooded Beaverton...

North Korean leader Kim Jung Il in Paramount's "Team America: World Police - 2004." Word from Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is that the North Korean embassy there is asking the government to ban the film, the creation of Trey Parker and Matt...

Both collect the musical works of Judy Garland and Cher. The list of their mutual likes and dislikes goes on and on, but these should...

    Just wanted to add my .02 about this movie. It was one of the funniest movies that I have ever seen. Kim Jong Il was priceless, especially when he became mad. The songs were great. One song had lyrics like "America, f*@* yeah!" I simply cannot say anything taht will do this movie jsutice. I will have to see it again. The message was great, as these guys can deliver a great message. Be prepared for swearing, but not as bad as South Park, The movie.
