What is Matt Stone’s Net Worth?
Matt Stone is an American screenwriter, director, actor, animator, and composer who has a net worth of $700 million. The well-known Comedy Central series “South Park” was co-created in 1997 by Stone and Trey Parker, a college classmate and friend.
Matt Stone was born Matthew Richard Stone on May 26, 1971, in Houston, Texas. He was raised in Littleton, Colorado, together with his mother Sheila, father Gerald (a professor of economics), and sister Rachel. Kyle Broflovski’s parents on “South Park” were eventually given the names Sheila and Gerald.
Matt enrolled in the University of Colorado Boulder after graduating from Heritage High School. His majors for his 1993 Bachelor of Arts degree were film and mathematics. Following their encounter in a film class with Trey Parker, the two began working together on short films including “Man on Mars” and “First Date.”
Together with Jason McHugh and Ian Hardin, Matt and Trey founded the production company Avenging Conscience in 1992. The short film “Jesus vs. Frosty” was made using construction paper cutouts.
In the short, also known as “The Spirit of Christmas,” as well as their 1995 short “Jesus vs. Santa,” the boys who would later become Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Kenny McCormick, and Eric Cartman make their initial appearances.
A trailer created by Parker, Stone, McHugh, and Hardin for “Alferd Packer: The Musical,” a movie about “The Colorado Cannibal,” was so well received by their fellow University of Colorado Boulder students that the head of the school’s film department persuaded them to turn it into a full-length film.
The movie, on which Matt worked as a writer, performer, and producer, was renamed “Cannibal! The Musical” after being purchased by Troma Entertainment in 1996. A live stage version of the movie has been presented by several theater organizations because it has developed into something of a cult phenomenon.
Despite having an agent, a lawyer, and a script agreement when they went to Hollywood, Parker and Stone struggled for the following few years. “Orgazmo” was written and produced by Matt and Trey, who also served as the director.
After its 1997 Toronto International Film Festival debut, October Films purchased the rights for $1 million. In 2002, Matt and Trey began work on the R-rated puppet film “Team America: World Police,” which they also co-wrote and co-produced.
After years of collaboration with several other studios, Parker and Stone announced in 2013 that they were launching a production firm called Important Studios. They claimed that these were “our favorite individuals in the world.”
In reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic, Matt and Trey created two “South Park” specials, “The Pandemic Special” in 2020 and “South ParQ Vaccination Special” in 2021, as well as the deepfake
Regarding the online series, Stone has stated, “Everyone was terrified of deepfakes before the big terrible monster called the coronavirus appeared. We only wanted to make fun of it since doing so makes it less frightening.”
The Comedy Central deal that Matt and Trey were under was due for renewal in 2007. The team secured a new deal after the ink was dry which is regarded as unheard of in the entertainment industry.
They were able to establish a digital hub for everything South Park-related thanks to the agreement, which included the ability to stream episodes. The biggest benefit was that they received 50% of all ad revenue, whether it was generated by the show for broadcast or online viewing.
Parker and Stone make an estimated $25–30 million annually from the show’s Comedy Central broadcast alone because of this unusual deal.
Additionally, they receive a 50% cut of any syndication sales of the program, such as when South Park’s streaming rights were sold to Netflix for $500 million in 2019 or Hulu for $198 million in 2015, respectively. The two received a 50% split (25% each) from each deal.
For a 3,000-square-foot residence in Venice, California, Matt paid $3.5 million in 2005. In January 2020, he placed a $4.5 million listing for this house. In the neighborhood, he owns a smaller home that he paid $800,000 for in 2003.
He invested $5.15 million to purchase an entire floor of a New York City skyscraper in 2008, then in April 2019 he sold the asset for $6.15 million.
Matt started dating Comedy Central producer Angela Howard in 2001. They got married in 2008. The couple gave birth to two children. Parker and Stone routinely mock religion in their literature, and Matt calls himself an agnostic.
