Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Host an Hourlong Election Special on Hulu
Funny or Die and Hulu have teamed up to create the ultimate election coverage special, and they’ve got the ultimate host to make it happen: Robert Smigel’s Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. In a press release today, Funny or Die announced that an hourlong special is in the works titled Triumph’s Election Special 2016, and it’s set to debut on Hulu sometime next month. Here’s more from the press release:
In TRIUMPH’S ELECTION SPECIAL 2016, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog hits the 2016 presidential campaign trail. Viewers will be taken from Iowa to New Hampshire to South Carolina in a tenacious news-gathering journey in the heat of the primary election season. Triumph has already visited a Democratic Debate, a Tea Party Convention, and followed a string of Ted Cruz bus appearances. In addition to crashing campaign events and mocking the press for their thirst for controversy, Triumph will take on hard-hitting issues of concern to voters on each side of the spectrum.
“A quote? I don’t have time for this shit,” said Triumph.
Triumph has already been spotted on the campaign trail by those who know him and those who are less familiar:
