‘The Jack and Triumph Show’ Premieres on Adult Swim February 20th
Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog’s new Adult Swim show now has a premiere date. At TCA over the weekend, Adult Swim announced that The Jack and Triumph Show will premiere on Friday, February 20th at 11:30pm. Robert Smigel called the show “an odd experiment” at TCA, noting the show’s use of the multi-cam format:
“We have a big concern that people are going to look at the aesthetics and just dismiss it,” Smigel told TV critics at Winter TV Press Tour 2015. Viewers could “easily assume these guys are slumming in a multi-cam.” But the whole point of the experiment is to put Triumph into a “format considered kinda lame in 2015 and mess with it,” Triumph’s creator said.
“I wouldn’t call it a parody of a multi-cam, because we stick with the conventions, but we’re definitely having fun with the conventions…We want you to watch the show and get past the fear it’s a corny multi-cam.”
The Jack and Triumph Show will will be a mix of both a multi-cam show following McBrayer and Triumph as former child stars and the non-scripted on-the-street remote segments that made Triumph popular on Conan.
