Students at Tisch School Of The Arts NYU were treated to a surprise guest appearance in one of their classes by Tony Award winners Matt Stone and Trey Parker. The South Park creators stood in for their regularly scheduled professor to drop some knowledge about story-telling for the class, for an episode of mtvU's Stand In.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are already a pretty big presence in New York right now, due in large part to the success of the Broadway show Book of Mormon, which earned them both Tony Awards. These guys know funny and they also know how to write a story. It’s for both reasons that they’ve been so successful in the entertainment industry and it’s why, in my belief, they’ll be around well beyond South Park’s run on Comedy Central.

I’m envious of the kids who got to sit in a classroom and listen to Parker and Stone talk about writing and how to tell a story.



The appearance was filmed for an episode of mtvU’s Stand In. The series, which airs on mtvU and at MTVU.com, features celebrities who surprise college kids by serving as professor for a class and sharing some wisdom based on their own experiences in their craft. Previous episodes have featured John Legend, Don Cheadle, and Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

The full episode of Stand In featuring Trey Parker and Matt Stone will air Monday, October 3, 2011 on mtvU and mtvU.com.
