Trey Parker Biography

Parker wrote and directed his first feature film, Cannibal! The Musical, while attending the University of Colorado in Boulder. A few years later, Trey co-created the hit animated series "South Park" with Matt Stone (his college friend and Cannibal! producer). Debuting on Comedy Central in 1997 and currently in its 15th 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 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. It has been a long-time dream of Parker's to write a musical for Broadway. Trey Parker is originally from Conifer, Colorado.
