- Okay.

- Let's do it.

If we go down to this... either end,

see, you can get it.

Keep going. Keep going. Keep going.

- You know what I mean?

- Yeah.

- Like this, right?

- Yeah, that's good.

- So we're talking to you?

- Yeah.


We have an amazing show tonight.

Oh, my God.

The creators of the legendary

animated series South Park,

Matt Stone and Trey Parker!

South Park's never been Matt

and I sitting there going,

"Okay, what's offensive?

What can we do that's offensive?"

Oh, "herro" "prease."

We just are sort of

offensive people, so...

Red rocket. Come on, dog. Red rocket.

You watch all four days of

the Democratic convention...

On Wednesday night,

I had to watch South Park, so...

Oh, this is hot scissoring.

Scissor me timbers.

All right,

I'd like to solve the puzzle.


All the bad in society,

it's our fault.

You can blame us.

Now how about we do

some scripture readings

from The Book of Mormon?

They have a new musical

opening on Broadway

that is getting rave reviews.

It's called The Book of Mormon.

Been here in New York

for 2 1/2 months.

This is opening night in about,

what, an hour?

South Park seems like

a million miles away.

But we start into South Park

in two weeks.

We're really stupid.

This was the longest break

we've ever had in between runs.

It's been quiet here

for the last few months.

It won't be any longer here shortly.


Knowing we have seven shows coming up

and we don't have any

ideas for them yet...

That's typical,

but to go back to South Park

is gonna be really hard.

There's this documentary

being made on South Park,

so that starts shooting now.

Let's go to the bathroom, boys.

Bathroom cam.

Oh, I probably should, actually.

I'll have...

Want to get that little

mini detail for 75?

- Yeah. Yeah.

- Okay.

Just give me the keys.

I'll just give 'em to you.

What's your name? - Trey.

Trey, I'll take care of you,

what time you leaving today?

- 5 in the morning, probably.

- Okay.

It is kind of our mission

every morning to go in

and come up with ideas and jokes.

Writers' room is off-limits.

I will only bother the writers' room

if there's something that

has got to be dealt with

or answered right on the spot.

Man, we got to do seven episodes.

We never had cameras

in the writers' room.

Yeah, I mean, it's a really...

It's kind of a safe place.

For all the good ideas that we get,

there's, like,

The Japanese Tsunami, which isn't

funny at all,but there is, like...

every... a couple days, it's like,

a new video comes out,

'cause so many people were

everyone has a video phone.

It... you just... it looks...

Oh, it's terrifying.

Anyway, so Tsunami video?

Tsunami show?

- Not super funny.

- Real funny.

And you got to feel safe to just go,

"What about this?"

And it's like, people go, "well..."

You go, "okay, you know,

I don't take any offense.

You didn't like my idea."

And you got to feel

like... it is kind of...

It's weirdly vulnerable.

I've had friends that

worked at other shows,

and if you say something

that doesn't work,

they're like, "ah, that sucks.

You suck. You're not funny."

And these guys,

it's actually a very kind room,

and I think, like,

the worst you get is, "okay."

The way that they work is definitely,

like, having fun,

laughing, chasing that,

and never making it, like, a grind.

It seems like movie trailers

make you feel stupid these days.

"Hello, you.

"Kevin James is a Zookeeper.

Go see it, a**hole."

That trailer. Ugh.

Talking monkey? In a m-m-movie?

It's gonna help me g-g-get laid?
