Jon Kimmel is one of the talented minds behind some of the best comedy on TV including his current work with his brother on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and his past with ‘The Man Show’ and ‘Crank Yankers’ but his first big writing credits came with the Comedy Central institution ‘South Park’. The multi-generational animated chaos show lead by Trey Parker and Matt Stone enters it’s 20th season this month, and in this unfiltered conversation Kimmel shares with us the process behind creating the funniest show on TV, how the show grew into weirder places, and how four foul-mouthed boys from Colorado go on their insane adventures. Kimmel who was in the writer’s room for some of the show’s biggest stories, also dishes on how he would hypothetically end the series. If you are just a casual fan of South Park, you will love this chat.
