Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Roasts the Nerds of Comic-Con

Back in May, Adult Swim announced that they had ordered an untitled half-hour series starring 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer and Robert Smigel's Triumph the Insult Comic Dog co-created by Smigel, Michael Koman, and David Feldman, and at Comic-Con the group talked about what we can expect from the series — that is, when Triumph wasn't preoccupied burning the audience and panel moderator Leonard Maltin. While the only new casting news is the addition of Nebraska's June Squibb, Smigel told the audience that they are really hoping to get Sam Donaldson to play one of Triumph's poker buddies, and Koman described the show as part scripted sitcom and part multi-cam [...]

Triumph Wonderfully Insults Four More Nationalities in Part 2 of His World Cup Coverage

On last night's Conan, Triumph returned with more of his World Cup coverage that involved him insulting Italians, the Brits, the Japanese, and folks from the Ivory Coast. Why is it that it's so funny to see a puppet insulting people's nationalities in a way that might be a little offensive if it was just a guy doing it? I don't know, and I don't care.

Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Buddy Up for Adult Swim Series

In one of the most inspired TV pairings in a while, Adult Swim has ordered a buddy comedy series starring Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, THR reports. The untitled half-hour series is created by Robert Smigel (who voices Triumph), Michael Koman, and David Feldman and follows "the lives of two former child actors (McBrayer and Triumph) who starred in a Lassie-esque series from the '80s and '90s. After their show's cancellation prompted a depraved downward spiral, Jack is back on the straight and narrow when Triumph finds his way back into his life." Click through to watch McBrayer and Triumph star together in a 2012 [...]

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Visits the Real Housewives of Atlanta

Conan's down in Atlanta all week, so naturally he brought his buddy Triumph along with him. Watch as the Real Housewives of Atlanta barely tolerate him insulting them to their faces! Never change, Triumph.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Bothers People on the Set of 'This Is 40'

Robert Smigel has a supporting role in Judd Apatow's new movie This Is 40, and while on the set one day, he slapped on his Triumph the Insult Comic Dog hand puppet and filmed this video for Funny or Die, slinging slams and burns at Apatow and the cast. Can you guess who has a better sense of humor about themselves, Judd Apatow or Megan Fox?

Inside 'Nathan For You' with Co-Creator Michael Koman

Michael Koman is the co-creator of two of the best comedies on TV — Nathan For You and Eagleheart – and he's about to add a third to his roster. Koman is gearing up for production on an yet-to-be-titled Adult Swim sitcom that pairs Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Jack McBrayer, which Koman co-created with Robert Smigel and David Feldman. After spending seven years on the writing staff of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Koman left the late night world, and he's since become some sort of anti-Chuck Lorre, responsible for multiple TV shows that are some of the most original and funny things currently happening on TV. Nathan For [...]

Triumph Pooped All Over the World Cup

Conan sent his old pal Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Queens to watch the World Cup and talk to fans — presumably flights to Brazil were too expensive — and, unsurprisingly, he made fun of a whole bunch of people right to their faces, and it was great. Never change, Triumph.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Insulted People at a Colorado Beer Fest

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog made a rare appearance on Conan last night, reporting from the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado, where he found plenty to mock amid the microbrewers and beer snobs. He also made a surprising and awesome Moby Dick reference.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Is Suing Carnival Cruise Lines

Conan regular Triumph the Insult Comic Dog used the show last night as a platform to announce he's suing Carnival Cruise Lines for stealing his name for their ship, the Carnival Triumph. Hopefully, this will be the last lawsuit Carnival receives from a Conan character. I'm assuming they don't have a cruise ship called the Carnival Preparation H Raymond.

Conan Did His Show with a Spray Tan and Corn Rows

Conan O'Brien's fans raised over $60,000 dollars for autism research for Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars, so Conan had to make good on his promise to host an episode of his show with a spray tan and cornrows last night. Here's your first glimpse at his horrific new appearance.

It was an exciting episode of the show all-around, with a video of Conan visiting a trendy L.A. tanning salon and appearances from Conan's old pals Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (at the Presidential Debate) and Reggie Watts. More highlights after the jump.

Triumph Wraps Up His World Cup Coverage by Humping a Dog From Every Country

Triumph wrapped up his three-part World Cup coverage last night the only way he really could – by humping every type of dog he could possibly find.

The Complete Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Collection

Earlier today, Adult Swim announced that it has picked up a new half-hour comedy series starring Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, the legendary cigar-smoking Rottweiler puppet created and voiced by Robert Smigel. Always dependable for raunchy punchlines, inappropriate celebrity insults, and uninvited butt-sniffing, Triumph made his television debut in 1997 on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and soon became a regular. Since then, Triumph has appeared all over, from various segments on O'Brien's later talk shows to the MTV Movie Awards to The Daily Show and more. Here's what Smigel told Vice about his many years playing Triumph back in 2010:

Oh my [...]

Robert Smigel Talks About How Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Got That Accent

Former SNL and Late Night With Conan O'Brien writer Robert Smigel sat down with Bill Simmons over at Grantland to talk about the origins of his most famous creation, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, and some of the canine's most high-profile celebrity encounters. Below, he talks about the 'Da Bears' movie he wrote with Bob Odenkirk that was never made.

Watch Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Ruin the World's Most Expensive Dog Wedding

Robert Smigel's creation Triumph the Insult Comic Dog returned to Conan last night in this clip of Triumph officiating a dog wedding that was specifically designed to win the Guinness World Record for "Most Expensive Dog Wedding." I don't know what's more insane, the fact that someone was trying to hold the world's most expensive dog wedding or that they booked Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as the priest.
