Trey Parker Net Worth 2018, Biography/Wiki, Married/Wedding
Trey Parker is an American actor, animator, screenwriter, director, producer, comedian, and recording artist. However, being an animator is regarded as his main career and is probably the one which brings the biggest amounts of money to Trey Parker net worth. He is best known for being the co-creator of South Park along with his creative partner and best friend Matt Stone, as well as co-writing and co-directing the 2011 musical The Book of Mormon, which won nine Tony Awards, include the award for Best Musical.
Trey Parker Net Worth $300 Million Dollars
Parker was born in Denver, Colorado, the son of Randy (a geologist) and Sharon (an insurance broker). The two share the first names and occupations of South Park characters Randy and Sharon Marsh. As a teenager, Parker developed a love for musical theatre, and joined the Evergreen Players, a venerable mountain community theater outside of Denver. At 14, he performed his first role as chorus member in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Flower Drum Song and went on to also design sets for the community theater’s production of Little Shop of Horrors. While in school, Parker had a part-time job in a pizza restaurant and was described as a film geek and music buff. In 1992, he and his college friend Matt Stone made their first animated series which they called “Jesus Vs Frosty”. It included four boys, two resembling Stan Marsh and Kyle Broflovski, one called Kenny who looked like Cartman, and a fourth unnamed boy who looked like Kenny. Both Jesus vs. Frosty and Cannibal!
The Musical were made while they were students at the University of Colorado film school. Afterwards, the two friends set off for Hollywood in hopes of making more movies. They came up with two worthwhile ideas; one a sequel to Jesus vs. Frosty, titled Jesus vs. Santa, and one about a character that would later be recurring in South Park, Mr. Hankey. They chose to write about the four boys. The result was The Spirit of Christmas, an animated short film that centered on four crude-acting, blob-shaped third-grade boys forced to intervene in a nasty fistfight between Jesus Christ and Santa Claus. The tape was a smash, passed around and copied endlessly in media circles in Los Angeles and New York City. The video landed in the hands of Doug Herzog of Comedy Central. “It literally was the funniest thing I’d ever seen,” he said in a 2006 interview. This gave birth to the worldwide TV phenomena called ‘South Park’. Stone and Parker produced 13 episodes for season 1 of South Park. As of 2007, Parker is credited with directing and writing the vast majority of South Park episodes, and voicing most of the regular and guest characters. South Park is currently still under contract to produce new episodes through 2016.
Parker and Stone have collaborated with Avenue Q composer Robert Lopez on a musical about Mormons; it is titled The Book of Mormon, and initially starred Andrew Rannells and Josh Gad. The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards in 2011 including that of Best Direction of a Musical for Parker. Book of Mormon has already grossed $200 million. That works out to about $19 million per month with more likely to come from London and other stage productions. On January 14, 2013, Parker and Stone announced that they would be starting a film production company called Important Studios. The initial financial assets of the studio are valued at $300 million, with the majority of the money originating from South Park and The Book of Mormon, plus a $60-million investment from Joseph Ravitch of the Raine Group, giving him a 20 percent minority stock. On January 24, 2013, Parker and Stone announced that they would be producing a fishing show. The show will star Dean Ween and Les Claypool and that the show will fuse sport fishing with music and comedy.
In 2006, Parker married Emma Sugiyama. That marriage ended in 2008. As of March 2014, Parker had been dating Boogie Tillmon, and living with her and her 11-year-old son. In a September 2006 edition of the ABC News program Nightline, Parker expressed his views on religion, stating that he believes in “a God” and that “there is knowledge that humanity does not yet possess” while cautioning that it would take a long time to explain exactly what he meant by his belief in God. In 2010, he donated his car to a Simi Valley area Meals for Wheels organization to be used for delivering meals to the needy in the Simi Valley area. He will also donated $25,000 in cash to the group. Trey Parker’s house is spread out over roughly 10,000 square feet and is made up of seven bedrooms and eleven and a half bathrooms. The Spanish Colonial style mansion was built in 2002, and features a massive entry foyer, a formal dining room, a large living room, a library, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and an office. In addition to the opulent common spaces, Trey Parker’s house has a large master suite, which includes a fireplace, a sitting room, a bathroom with a skylight, and a balcony with stairwell access to the backyard. Outside of Trey Parker’s house, there is an outdoor barbecue/living room area, a heated swimming pool, and a one-bedroom guesthouse. The home cost around $13 million.

He had written a script titled "Fuzzies", which is a children's story he was planning to direct using stop-motion-animation for the closet creatures, but the project has been put on hold. He and Matt Stone were also planning to make a movie based on "That's My Bush!".
His character, Eric Cartman, was rated number 16 in Comedy Central's newest show 'Mouthing Off: 51 Greatest Smartasses'.
On South Park (1997), he is the voice of "Stan Marsh" and Stan's father "Randy Marsh" (among other characters). He named Stan's parents (Sharon and Randy) after his own.
Sings and plays the keyboard for a band called D.V.D.A
Wore the green, low-cut dress popularized by Jennifer Lopez to the 72nd Academy Awards.
Has a black belt in tae kwan do.
Has played piano since the age of 12 and credits Elton John as a hero.
His work often has an amateur appearance for the sake of comedy; South Park has paper cutout-style animation, Team America has intentionally bad puppetry and his live action movies often have intentionally bad acting.
He likes to use the line "God bless us, everyone" in movies or episodes of South Park.
[Spotlight on location's interview in the Baseketball special features] We laugh at everything and make fun of everything and as soon as we say "we're not gonna make fun of this" then we become racists and bigots and whatever we call us.
Winning the Emmy really was like, you're kind of the punk rock kid at school, and suddenly you get Student of the Month. And you're like, "This isn't cool."
"You know, everyone says that South Park (1997) is satire and political satire and whatever, but really when you look at a season, there's rarely more than a couple episodes per season that are political satire".
During the run we were like, "So there's two things we can't do on Comedy Central: Show Mohammed or Tom Cruise."
(On That's My Bush! (2001)): "A lot of people didn't get it. I didn't get it myself".
