Stone started his film career in 1992, making a holiday short titled Jesus vs. Frosty. His first success came from Cannibal! The Musical. From there he made another short title Jesus vs. Santa, leading him and his college friend Trey Parker to create the animated television series South Park, which has been on television for over a decade. He has four Emmy Awards for his role in South Park, winning for both "Outstanding Programming More Than One Hour" and "Outstanding Programming Less Than One Hour".

Stone's mother is Jewish and his father is of Irish descent. Stone and his younger sister, Rachel were raised in the Denver, Colorado area, before moving to Littleton, Colorado. He attended Heritage High School in Littleton. He graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and was their first student to hold a double major in film and mathematics.
