    “South Park” creator Trey Parker says his subversive show won’t feature too many Trump-themed gags in its upcoming season, a deliberate effort to avoid becoming a cable news show disguised as an animated comedy. Parker told the Los Angeles Times that he never intended “South Park,” now entering its 20th year, to be a show that obsesses over every political controversy of the moment, which today usually involves the president’s latest tweet. “We did start to become that, though, especially the last season,” he said. “We fell into the same trap that “Saturday Night Live” fell into, where it was...

    Trey Parker, a co-creator of the Comedy Central staple “South Park,” says the next season of the not-for-children cartoon is going to be scaling back on political humor, according to an interview with the Los Angeles Times. Parker, who also voices several characters in the long-running satire, thought showrunners were falling into the “same trap” as "Saturday Night Live," he tells the the Los Angeles Times in an interview published Thursday. He didn’t want the show to turn into CNN, where viewers can just “tune in to see what we’re going to say about [President] Trump.” {..snip..}

    Full Title.........................Trey Parker says South Park will ignore Trump because he just 'doesn't care' anymore - despite their 'crazy ratings'...................South Park star Trey Parker seems to be over creating jokes around the President of the United States, despite the 'crazy ratings'. Parker, who voices four of South Park's main characters, said he and longtime collaborator Matt Stone, are fed up with the Donald Trump jokes. 'We fell into the same trap that Saturday Night Live fell into, where it was like, "Dude, we're just becoming CNN now. We're becoming: Tune in to see what we're going to say about Trump,"'...

    I was one of those annoying kids that always asked why. Trust me, I was annoying. I queried anything and everything. Why should I eat my vegetables? How come I had to dress up for certain occasions? Why was it rude to point and stare at people in public? No one ever explained it to me. I wasn’t trying to be impertinent. It just seemed that life was filled with rules, customs, and standards of behavior about which I had no say. How did these codes of conduct come about? Who created them? Nobody seemed to know. I don’t think...

    Complete Headline: Controversial South Park episode shows Donald Trump being raped and murdered: Show attacks tycoon's run for President, his immigration policies and then kills him off in shocking final scene Donald Trump was on the receiving end of a vicious take-down by South Park on Wednesday evening, which skirted the borders of decency and taste and arguably crossed them. In an almost unprecedented attack on a running presidential candidate, the adult cartoon lampooned the Republican and in a shocking finale, showed the billionaire businessman being brutally raped to death. The inflammatory episode of the satirical cartoon, created by...

    Like so many Americans, Jarrad Winter didn't pay much attention to Islam. Now, it's foremost on his mind. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com Sunday evening, Winter, a Marine Corps veteran, single father of two boys and a computer programming specialist who runs FatwahonIslam.com, says he is now homeless because he openly criticizes Islam. It wasn't until the South Park creators were threatened by a Muslim that he felt the need to study Islam, he told Examiner. In 2010, Jesse Curtis Morton -- a Muslim convert also known as Younus Abdullah Mohammad -- plead guilty to communicating threats to South...

    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...

    A Web site that promotes Islam is warning the creators of the television cartoon "South Park" that they could be killed for airing a recent show that depicted the Muslim prophet Muhammad in a bear suit. The site says in an entry posted Thursday that the authors of the irreverent cable show, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, could wind up like Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh. 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...
