If you're easily offended, please don't watch the following video. Thanks.

Prior to the release of South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut in 1999, the movie's creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, were asked repeatedly by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to alter the film in order for it to gain an R rating rather than an NC-17. Below is a now-legendary memo sent by Stone to the MPAA, in response to such a request.

Matt Berry is a BAFTA award-winning English actor, writer, comedian and musician. Berry is perhaps best known for his acting role as Douglas Reynholm in The IT Crowd and his role in composing AD/BC: A Rock Opera, from 2007 until the final episode in 2013. He is also well known for his appearances in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh and Snuff Box. He plays Beef in House of Fools and the title character in Channel 4 sitcom Toast of London for which he won a BAFTA award this year (Best Male Performance in a Comedy Programme).

LETTERS LIVE is a series of live events celebrating the power of literary correspondence. Inspired by Shaun Usher's Letters of Note, Letters Live is an initiative by publishing company Canongate and Benedict Cumberbatch’s production company SunnyMarch. It has become a phenomenon wherever is has played in the UK.

The idea of LETTERS LIVE is simple: we ask talented, inspiring and high-profile artists from various disciplines to read letters out loud to our audiences. LETTERS LIVE celebrates letter writing and the art of correspondence first and foremost.
