Trey Parker

Born on October 19, 1969 Trey Parker is a famous American writer, animator, actor, producer, singer and director. He has quite a few achievements to his credit in the field of music and films. He is famous for creating South Park as a co-creator and the award winning musical The Book Of Mormon was also because of his joint effort with his partner Matt Stone.

He studied in the University of Colorado, Boulder after completing his high school. He had immense interest in music and films as a child. It was during his college days that he came in touch with Matt Stone and together they worked up a wonderful partnership and they also starred together way back in 1993 in a full length musical by the name Cannibal, The Musical.

Trey Parker was born in Conifer, Colorado. His father Randy Parker was a geologist and his mother Sharon was an insurance saleswoman. He had a love for music and films from his early childhood. He made short films with his friends on weekends when he was just fourteen. His father gifted him a video camera and it helped him to make those short films with likeminded films. He got married to Emma Sugiyama in 2005 and divorced her in 2008. He again got married to Boogie Tillmon and they continue to stay together and have a daughter.


There is no denying the fact that his early personal life was the stepping stone for his success as a film maker and an all round personality. It would be pertinent to mention here that his partner Matt Stone has had an important influence as far as his life is concerned. Together they have achieved quite a bit and they have quite a few distances to cover in the future too.

When we look at his biography there are quite a few things which stand out. He likes to use the phrase God Bless Us, everyone and this has become more of a trademark with all his episodes of South Park. He always believes in keeping his works a bit amateurish so that the comic element can be maintained. All his works have some social message and he does not spare too many chances when it comes to taking on political figures and celebrities.

He has a number of successful albums and it all started in the year 1998 with one titled Chef Aid: The South Park Album. It was a reasonably big success and it reached 16th position in US charts and 14th in Canada. The last album Team America: World Police was released on October 19, 2004 and it too has been a reasonably big hit.

His achievements in the field of filmography have also been quite impressive to say the least. It all started with Cannibal, The Musical in 1993 which certainly was a big success. Since then he has quite a few releases under his belt including Orgazmo, Terror Firmer, The Aristrocrats, and the The Despicable Me in 2017. Finally it would be pertinent to mention here that Trey Parker is quite wealthy and according to some estimates his net worth could be around $500 million.
