Leopold "Butters" Stotch (voiced by Matt Stone) is a popular fictional character in the animated television series South Park; his nickname is a play on the word butterscotch. Butters has a large tuft of blond hair on top of his head, and wears an aquamarine jacket with dark green trousers. His birthday is on September 11, as revealed in the episode "AWESOM-O." Having a birthday that's the same day as a national tragedy is just one of Butters' many misfortunes. Matt Stone speaks the lines of the character Butters with a distinctive Southern accent in a wholesome manner.
Rodney Rude (born Rodney Keft in Bathurst) is an Australian 'blue' stand-up comedian, poet and writer. He is infamous for his bawdy humour. He has released 12 albums and 4 videos throughout his long career, most of which are distributed by EMI Music Australia. He began his career in a band, singing and playing guitar, before his habit of altering the lyrics to amuse himself saw him become a comedian. In 1969, he left Australia to tour the United States and Canada. He returned in 1981, after being asked by his friend Barry Wain, to found the Comedy Store in Sydney.
William "Billy" Connolly, CBE, (born 24 November 1942) is a comedian, musician, presenter, and actor. He is sometimes known, especially in his native Scotland, by the nickname "The Big Yin" (The Big One), a reference to his height. Any male visitor to Glasgow above average height may be addressed as "Big Yin" by the locals; Billy, however, is The Big Yin. An early irreverent sketch, The Crucifixion, is an example of his often controversial humour, and his style, in story and song, is known for being somewhat vulgar, and for being very critical towards respected institutions.
