The Book Of Mormon
The Book of Mormon is the outrageous brainchild of South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, along with Robert Lopez of Avenue Q. As a result, the show frequently crosses the line with its sharp satire and on-the-nose humour with outrageous religious and social commentary. Following two elders who are sent on a mission to Uganda, the pair are forced to confront their beliefs before spreading the word of the Latter Day Saints.
