NEW YORK (AP/CBS4) – The profane and hysterical “The Book of Mormon” took home nine Tony Awards on Sunday including the prize for best musical.

It’s a considerable achievement for a pair of first-time Broadway playwrights from Colorado known more for their raunchy cartoons featuring potty-mouthed kids.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are creators of the Emmy Award-winning “South Park.”

“War Horse” — a World War I tale about horses told with puppets and actors — won five Tonys.

Mark Rylance won the best acting award for a play for Jez Butterworth’s “Jerusalem.”

Norbert Leo Butz won for best actor in a musical for “Catch Me If You Can.” Sutton Foster won for best actress in a musical for “Anything Goes.”

Frances McDormand was declared the best leading actress in a play for “Good People.”
