Biography: Matthew Stone (born May 26, 1971) is one of the co-creators of the television series South Park.
Though he was born in Houston, Texas, Stone was raised in the Denver suburb of Littleton, Colorado.Like his South Park character Kyle Broflovski, Stone is Jewish. He holds degrees in film and mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. In 1997, Comedy Central debuted South Park, which he and Trey Parker created. He graduated from Heritage High School.
On South Park, he is the basis for the fictional character Kyle Broflovski, from the character's appearance to his parents.
In 2002, Stone was interviewed in the 2002 Michael Moore documentary, Bowling for Columbine. In the film, there is a short animated segment about the history of guns done in what has been described as a "South Park-esque" manner. Stone, who enjoyed the film, expressed anger over what he saw as a misleading attempt by Moore to insinuate that the South Park creators had a hand in the making of the film when in fact both Stone and Parker own guns as do their families. Subsequently, Michael Moore is portrayed in the film Team America: World Police as a suicide bomber and described as an "annoying blowhard" and a "giant socialist weasel". However, he later stated that he does not "really hate the guy".
