Early Life 

Randolph Severn “Trey” Parker  III was born on the 19th of October, 1969, in Colorado. Parker is the son of a geologist father, Randy and an insurance broker mother, Sharon.

In 1995, they created another animated film called ‘Jesus vs. Santa’. The plot revolved around the adventures of four boys.

The success of ‘South Park’ propelled the duo to co-write and produce a full-length feature film based on the show. ‘South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut’, a musical comedy film, was released in 1999. 

Parker and Stone, in collaboration with Robert Lopez, created the book, lyrics, and music for a theatrical production, ‘The Book of Mormon’, a religious satire that first premiered in 2011.

Favorite Quotes from Trey Parker 

“The story of Jesus makes no sense to me. God sent his only son. Why could God only have one son and why would he have to die? It’s just bad writing, really. And it’s really terrible in about the second act.” – Trey Parker

“I got into this little habit of architecture and building. I designed a house in Colorado and one in Hawaii. The idea is supposed to be build and sell – but then I can never bring myself to sell them.” – Trey Parker

“The truth is, marijuana probably isn’t going to make you kill people. Most likely isn’t going to fund terrorists, but pot makes you feel fine with being bored and it’s when you’re bored that you should be learning a new skill or some new science or being creative. If you smoke pot you may grow up to find out that you’re not good at anything.” – Trey Parker

“If we have a great idea, we’ll go, ‘Oh, this could be a cool movie.’ Or really for us, it’s more like, ‘Oh, this is a really bad idea. Let’s do this. This seems really stupid.’” – Trey Parker

“It’s not like we have a formula, but I think one of the reasons this show has survived is that it has a big heart at its center. Other cartoon shows have people crap on each other and make racist jokes. But I don’t think people tune in for that. I just don’t think a show lasts for 10 years without a heart.” – Trey Parker

 

3 Lessons from Trey Parker and South Park 

Now that you know all about Trey Parker’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from him: 

 

1. Separate The Creative Process

Sitting down with a blank piece of paper or an empty document screen and expecting for something to happen is stupid. Sometimes inspiration, but most of the time, however, all that happens is you’re left there cursing your “lack of creativity.”

 

2. Inspiration Is A Product Of Following The Process

Inspiration is something that has to be worked at and worked on. It’s not some eureka moment or a feeling reserved for people who deem themselves as creative. It’s a process.

 

3. The Creative Process Is Iterative

As mentioned above, by trusting in the process and putting in your hours, and doing the work, you’ll improve.
