If you haven't been watching Adult Swim's The Jack and Triumph Show, here's a perfect example of what you've been missing. In this clip, Triumph tries a job that earns much lower respect than his usual gig as an insult comic when he meets up with the paparazzi for some insider tips. Triumph asks some hard-hitting questions too: "So what's more painful: Having your foot run over by Britney Spears, or taking a good, hard, long look at your life?"
Playing the lovable but slightly creepy Kenneth the Page on NBC's 30 Rock from 2006-2013 brought Jack McBrayer to fame, but he's delivered that trademark sunny Georgian charm to tons of onscreen roles and television appearances. McBrayer has long served as a reliable supporting player on both the improv stage and television screen, but tonight he's the star alongside a brash plastic dog puppet with a flair for pop culture-grounded insults.

(Adult Swim even uploaded the full "Icelandic Ultra-Blue" video to YouTube shortly after Lazzo posted on Reddit.) Today, Cross and Benjamin responded to Lazzo on Facebook, and [...]
From early in his life Brett Gelman knew he wanted to be a comedian. Heavily influenced by the Marx Brothers and Mel Brooks, Gelman worked his way up the comedy hierarchy – performing regularly at UCB and eventually landing recurring roles on shows including Married (FX) and Eagleheart (Adult Swim). Gelman has appeared in The Other Guys and 30 Minutes or Less and hosts his own podcast, Gelmania.
