Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Roasts Shaq and Charles Barkley on 'Inside the NBA'

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog has a new Adult Swim show to promote this week, so he appeared on last night's Inside the NBA on TNT to spend a little time roasting hosts Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, and Shaquille O'Neal. The only thing more hilarious than Triumph's digs at these guys ("Shaq, honestly, I love you, but Charlie Brown's teacher is easier to understand") is the fact that Barkley has two dogs of his own named Mango and Yoohoo.

Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Visit 'The Tonight Show'

Ahead of the premiere of their new Adult Swim show, Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog visited last night's Tonight Show, and Triumph didn't let the interview end without reminding everyone about the whole Conan thing: "We love NBC. NBC will always be the place where Jack and I got our start and where they fucked Conan."

'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 [...]

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 Starts Some Beef with 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force'

With the premiere of The Jack and Triumph Show now less than a week away, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is already getting into network spats with other Adult Swim stars by insulting the long-running series Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Triumph Humps a Cat and Promotes 'The Jack and Triumph Show'

Ahead of The Jack and Triumph Show's premiere next Friday, Adult Swim released a new promo over the weekend, and it's a pretty solid indicator of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog's willingness to promote his new show: Give him something to hump, and in return he'll deliver the bare minimum amount of promotion required. The show premieres on Friday, February 20th at 11:30pm.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Visits the Costumed Characters of Times Square

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 [...]

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.
