South Park Voice Actors: The Recurring Cast in 2022

South Park
South Park

South Park is a very well-known animated sitcom. The story follows the adventurous and funny lives of four kids in a small mountain town known as South Park. At a first glance, it’d seem just like a sarcastic Parody of how the world works, but it tackles the real-life issues which make it a unique piece of work. The show was created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker and it’s been on air since 1997. And it’s been proven a million times that this show has always been way ahead of its time.

The four boys of South Park are Kyle Broflovski, Stan Marsh, Eric Cartman, and Kenneth McCormick all of these characters bring a unique perspective to life. Once you do start watching the show you’ll start wondering who is the voice behind all these characters. As their voice makes everything funnier, specifically Cartman’s. His “Authoritah” shall be respected forever. So today we’ll take a quick look at the voice actors/actresses of all the main characters of South Park.

The majority of the voices in South park are given by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They Both are responsible for the voices of most of the male characters on the show. By editing the frequencies their voice becomes different for every character they play.

Characters Played by Trey Parker:

  • Stan Marsh

Stan is one of the main characters of South Park. He is a Fourth Grader and the sanest person amongst the four kids. Since the start his catchphrase has been “Oh my god they killed Kenny” and “Dude, this is pretty F***ed up right there”. He is mainly responsible for pointing to the Moral of the story at the end of most of the episodes. His best friend throughout the series is Kyle.

  • Eric Cartman

Eric is my favorite character and has the best voice ever. The way he lands his speech makes every comment hilarious. He is also a Big-boned (can’t say fat) eighth-grader. The best part about his character is that he ends up being the major antagonist in some episodes. The other characters don’t even have a strong bond with Cartman and they have no idea why they even hang out together.  They are more or less Frenemies.

His best lines so far have been “Respect my Authoritah” and “Screw you guys I’m going home” Listening to his voice is almost addictive with a tinge of annoyance.

  • Randy Marsh

Randy Marsh is Stan’s Father. He is a geologist however, he’s always depicted as a dumb dude without a clue about most of the things. A fun fact about this character though, Randy’s character, as well as their name, is based on Trey’s Father, who is also a Geologist!

  • Mr. Garrison

Herbert Garrison is the class teacher of all four boys. He is often depicted as a gay man who suppresses his gayness by using a doll. He calls this doll “Mr. Hat”. It’s been revealed that Mr. Hat is the representation of Mr. Garrison’s homosexuality. Mr. Garrison has been a man till the 9th season. However, he went through a sex change surgery and became a woman but later he went and reversed his operation becoming male again.

Other than these permanent characters Trey Parker has also played some recurring characters, like Clyde Donovan, one of the classmates of Cartman, Kenny, Stan, and Kyle. Mr. Hankey, Literally a piece of shit that talks. Mr. Mackey is the counselor of South park elementary well known for saying ” m’kay” after every sentence. Timmy Burch, the 4th grader whose vocabulary is limited to “TIMMY!!”

Jimmy Balmer, a 4th grader who is physically disabled, uses Crutches for his forearm to walk. Tuong Lu Kim, Dr. William’s Alter ego, owns the city airlines and wok, he is depicted with a stereotypical Chinese accent often leading to mispronouncing words such as instead of ‘city’ he says ‘shitty’. He also plays Phillip, who is one of the two best friends of a kid’s show called Terrance and Phillip. The show is mostly about farting though.

Characters Played by Matt Stone:

  • Kyle Broflovski

Kyle is also one of the four main characters of South Park. According to the statement made by the co-creator of the show, Kyle is the only young child in the series who is Jewish. He is often acknowledged for being intelligent as well. Kyle’s Jewish faith is always in the center specifically during Christmas. He is mostly ridiculed by Cartman who never respects others’ religious beliefs. But his loneliness on Christmas gave birth to Mr. Hankey.  Often called the  Christmas Poo.

  • Kenny McCormick

Kenneth McCormick is the last main character often known for…. Dying. Kenny just dies in every single episode. As per Matt and Trey, the reason behind this is that Kenny is poor. That’s all. Kenny is always seen with an orange coat on which covers his mouth, making it difficult to understand what he’s saying, His voice is usually muffled. While he is played by Matt in the series His voice actor is Mike Judge in films like “The Jeffersons”, ” Turd Burglars”, “Lice Capades” and many others.

Kenny is also well known for being the most perverted 8-year-old in the entire series. Most people think that he says gibberish during his screen time but he says proper words, most of which are super perverted. To understand this even more you should lookup for “Kenny’s Lyrics in South Park theme” the results will shock you.

  • Butters Stotch

Butters also play a vital role in the show. He is one of the 4th graders in South Park Elementary. Butter started getting more attention after he replaced Kenny. Due to Kenny’s temporary absence in the Sixth season. This helped Butter gain more screen time and eventually more fans. In the usual setting, He plays the role of “innocent child” in the group

Besides these characters, Matt also gives voice to some other temporary and recurring characters, Such as Stuart McCormick, Kenny’s father who is a helpless drunk who never managed to make a decent living due to his drinking habits. Gerald Broflovski, Kyle’s father, is a lawyer and used to have a good friendship with Stuart. Jimbo Kern, a Vietnam veteran, and a hunter is Stan Marsh’s half-uncle. Craig Tucker, one of the kids in 4th grade known for flipping people off for no apparent reason. And Jesus, I’m not even sure how to describe this, except for being Son of God he is also the host of a television show called Jesus and Pals.
