South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone

BookofMormon Jon Stewart killed Kenny.  Just kidding.  But he did interview Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of the infamous (and Emmy award-winning) television show South Park.  Following their musical interventions in Team America and South Park the Movie, they now have a Broadway show: The Book of Mormon the Musical.   The interview is definitely worth checking out, as both Parker and Stone speak articulately and frankly about their work broadly and about their new musical Mormon extravaganza, which Parker suggests follows the frameworks of traditional Broadway musicals.  Stewart says of their musical, they "have managed to satirize religion while simultaneously almost celebrating it."
