On tonight's South Park, the kids held a comedy awards show that parodied the one Comedy Central recently debuted. The best thing about the episode, though, was a subplot involving the endlessly annoying—and even more endlessly present—Tyler Perry.

Tyler Perry Locks Up Three-Year Crossdressing Pact With Lionsgate

STV · 07/23/08 07:10PM

After a nearly four-year partnership that has yielded only the finest in crossdressing minstrelsy and Cosby-kid jail-ho cameos, Lionsgate and Tyler Perry today announced a new development pact for the glitter-shitting auteur through at least 2011. According to a press release issued this afternoon, the deal picks up after the release of Perry's next two films — The Family That Preys and Madea Goes to Jail (infamously co-starring Keshia Knight Pulliam in the plum role of "Imprisoned Hooker") — and will keep the 'Gate in the lucrative Perry DVD business for the foreseeable future as well.
