South Park has sparked a lot of controversy over the years, but the show’s shock value was always in service of comedy. The show frequently mocks real-life celebrities, parodying the news and spinning it in a funny way. Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was a real-life character who appeared frequently on the show. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, have an incredible story about how they obtained a signed photo of the late dictator.
South Park was ranked the 22nd best sitcom of all time by Rolling Stone.

The success of South Park is the reason for the show’s long run on Comedy Central. During its multi-decade run on the network, it has amassed a sizable fan base. Of course, it’s popular for a reason: it combines the finest of toilet humor with cutting satire and razor-sharp current wit.
