Matt Stone

Matt Stone is also the co-creator of the award-winning animated series South Park.

Stone met Trey Parker at the University of Colorado where he was working toward a degree in Math. The duo spent most of their time producing comedic shorts, including the original Frosty vs. Santa, the precursor to the now famous The Spirit of Christmas. Stone also produced and acted in the Parker-directed Cannibal: The Musical and Orgazmo.

Early in their careers, Parker and Stone met Brian Graden, a FoxLab executive who is now president of entertainment at MTV/VH1. Graden commissioned the team to create a video Christmas card to send to his friends. The Spirit of Christmas was born, and soon after came South Park, the animated series that follows the adventures of four young boys in the Rocky Mountain town of South Park.

In the summer of 1999, Parker and Stone released their critically acclaimed feature length film, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. The film earned an Oscar nomination, as well as an LA Film Critics Award, a NY Film Critics Award and an MTV Movie Award.

In 2001, Parker and Stone created the controversial That's My Bush!, a sitcom that made fun of sitcoms and portrayed the Commander in Chief as the lovable, often bumbling, main character.

Stone also wrote, performed on and executive-produced albums, including the platinum-selling Chef Aid: The South Park Album, the soundtrack South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut, Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics and Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld.

Stone lives in the Los Angles area with his dogs, Mr. Yes and Rodney.
