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.

The Golden Collar Awards Proved Dangerous for Triumph

After being brutally snubbed by the Golden Collar Awards, it was only natural that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog head down there with a camera crew to document the event. Instead of learning about the Golden Collars, though, we end up getting to know a very different side of Triumph. The underside. Stick around till the end to watch the X-rated Conan-Modern Family crossover you never knew you needed. Stella and Triumph, sitting in a tree, H-U-M-P-I-N-G.

Robert Smigel on the Humiliations of Being Triumph

Robert Smigel on what it's like to do those incredible man-on-the-street bits as Triumph the Insult Comic Dog: "Oh my God, it’s so degrading! Sometimes the only reason people will talk to me is because I look so pathetic. I’m this balding, middle-aged guy and I’m crouched in this weird position. That’s how I got Jennifer Lopez, I think. I looked so unthreatening and like such a loser she thought she was doing me a favor. I remember one time in particular when Triumph was supposed to be getting a blowjob from a poodle in the back of this limo. I was literally on the floor of the limousine [...]

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.

The Nicest Person Hangs Out with the Meanest Dog and the Hottest Dog

It's just a classic nice fellow meets mean service employee then gets sad, so he has his famously mean dog puppet friend come and yell insults at said mean service employee, which devolves into complete nonsense yet understanding and eventually love and "titty" smacking story. Classic.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Wants What He Is Due

Conan O'Donnell's canine friend Triumph the Insult Comic Dog was passed over for a Golden Collar Award nomination by Dog News Daily, and no greater injustice has ever been perpetrated. (At least they got one thing, right, though: Stella from Modern Family was nominated.) In this video appeal, he takes down his competitors one by one. Luckily, those competitors do not include Puppy Conan, because oh my god I don't know if Triumph could compete there:

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?

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Is Pretty Great at the Guy's Choice Awards

The Guy's Choice Awards. It's a thing, apparently! I mean, I would think that pretty much any other award could also be called the "Guy's Choice Award" and it would still be accurate, but I'm glad they're bringing the subtext right up front over at Spike TV. In any case, the show invited Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to come do a routine, and he was at his Triumphy best. Sure, it's not quite the same as when he is insulting people he's interviewing to their faces, but this is the next best thing.

Conan's Last Night In NY Features Louis C.K., Triumph The Insult Comic Dog, And A Same-Sex Wedding

Conan wrapped up his trip to New York with a stellar show that included an interview with Louis C.K. and a segment with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog insulting Occupy Wall Streeters. Oh, and a history-making televised same-sex wedding. Above, C.K. talks about working with Conan back in the day, accidentally entering George Bush's motorcade, and how we'll all probably Tweet the return of Jesus. Updated to add: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert made an appearance too. Triumph, Stewart/Colbert, and a wedding below:
