Triumph The Insult Comic Dog Vs. The Pungent Hippies In Manchester, Tennessee!!
I am – Hercules!!
Triumph The Insult Comic Dog on Friday made his much-anticipated first appearance on “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien,” which turned out to be roughly four trillion times as funny as any installment of Jaywalking ever.
A piece of the piece:
If you want to see the rest, including Triumph’s interactions with The Beastie Boys and Bruce Springsteen, use the Hulu mechanism below and fast-forward to the 19:06 mark. (But take care not to continue beyond the 22:22 mark, lest you accidentally expose yourself to charisma vacuum Shia LeBeauf, who can make even tales of hanging out with Steven Spielberg soul-crushingly dull.)
Triumph's finest hour, from seven years ago:

Shia was indeed terrible on Conan..the guy has the personality of a vaccuum cleaner. In his defense, he might have just been exhausted but yeah, it was a definite fast forward for me.

If you can't even do an interview then don't do it all.

but he still hasn't topped the time he went to the Attack of the Clones opening. That was one of the funniest things I've ever seen; and that's from a guy who saw AotC at the midnight opening.

caught me off guard. That was awesome. So glad they are still doing Triumph spots with the 11:30 time now.
June 20, 2009, 7:07 p.m. CST
I thought Shia seemed upbeat and energetic, considering how exhausted he must be with media interviews...I thought Phil Jackson was much more of a black hole interview, if we must dub someone a charisma vacuum...
June 20, 2009, 7:08 p.m. CST
Good to see him back on late night TV.

the fuck?..it's 2009...this isn't the cold war anymore

Shia uses the word "outrageous" almost as much as Miss Fox does all those "uber-"words. I was happy to see Triumph again.
June 20, 2009, 8:01 p.m. CST
Probably second only to the Star Wars roasting. Better than the Westminster and the Bon Jovi rips.
June 20, 2009, 8:17 p.m. CST
yeah, they're one hour clip shows, lol.
June 20, 2009, 8:24 p.m. CST
I've only seen like two of his movies, so I mostly know him from seeing him on talk shows and I think he's been really funny. In fact I love the one time on Letterman when he explained his Walgreens arrest. Who knew pimple cream was such a menace?
June 20, 2009, 8:30 p.m. CST
Why is this guy famous anyways? I sense a Jew connection with him and Speilberg but I'm too lazy to IMDB that.
June 20, 2009, 8:35 p.m. CST
Disturbia. He was very nice. He likes the action movies, and stuff. This was a few months before Transformers came out, and he was already signing pics.

For me to poop on!

Hey Jeff Zucker has got this all figured out. Who cares about all the money Tonight used to make. Screw that. The heartland is going to love Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.<br> <br> Jeff Zucker = worst network head ever????
June 20, 2009, 9:47 p.m. CST
'cause he was there, too. And he didn't disappoint. Definitely one of the better Triumph bits I've ever seen.
June 20, 2009, 9:51 p.m. CST
The new Triumph video that is :(
June 20, 2009, 9:51 p.m. CST
June 20, 2009, 10:19 p.m. CST
Yeah those heartlanders who made 2 and a half men a hit will be so offended by triumph.
June 20, 2009, 11:29 p.m. CST
Um, well, Conan's ratings have been plummeting so... your point?
June 20, 2009, 11:47 p.m. CST
I mean most people who would find his sort of humor funny are asleep by 9?
June 20, 2009, 11:48 p.m. CST
Or are they just killing off episodes? Because they had a season finale last time they were on I thought? Like a cliff hanger.

Because Shithead says it, like, twenty times during this interview.
June 21, 2009, 12:34 a.m. CST
...in the key demos for 18-34 year olds. NBC doesn't care about the "Heartland" as much as they care about the 18-34 year olds which sell ads for the station. Triumph fits right into that demo, and I'm sure Jeff Zucker is pushing it...
June 21, 2009, 12:36 a.m. CST
For Conan's dominant ratings...good for him. I think the network execs are looking for him to be competition for the younger set (i.e. Stewart, Colbert, Kimmel)and are not worried about Letterman anymore.

Click on their link and all you get is a spinning blue thing. Fuck Hulu and NBC for haterating on anyone living outside the US. Bastards.
June 21, 2009, 1:29 p.m. CST
That's my favourite line of the whole skit.
June 21, 2009, 4:13 p.m. CST
Late Night (Network TV) is dead. stop investing
June 21, 2009, 6:23 p.m. CST
Hahahahaha Herc has an opinion. I thought you creamed your panties over these VMA stars?
June 21, 2009, 6:45 p.m. CST
Fuckin laughed so hard my jaws hurt.that dude is hilarious
June 21, 2009, 6:57 p.m. CST
I see you are no marketing genius or a TV strategist.

I sat and watched his interview. Goddamnit he sucks. So it is now official....I HATE SHIA LeBEAUF or whatever his fucking name is.

by Underoos Hero
You can see Shia acting coked out of his mind during this interview. And before you argue. Think about it. Show business, check..Crazy Schedule, check...No sleep, check...free drugs, check and double check. He is fucking high as a kite here.

Kings: Too classy for a talkback.

That star wars thing nearly made me faint from laughing so hard. And the hippie stuff was classic too. You know what would rock? Triumph doing an interview with the Muppets. Especially with that anemic "nice guy" Kermit. And then he could hump Miss Piggy and chew up those two old dudes - show them how heckling is REALLY done. All of it laced with four-letter-words, of course. Then he could start on ALF. Think of it - all those overhyped over-the-hill hand puppets for Triumph to poop on. The mind reels. In fact, I'm feeling a little faint. Gotta have a lie-down. Later.
June 22, 2009, 11:53 a.m. CST
Remember all the weird roles he was getting before he became "famous?" Will Smith's plucky pal in "I, Robot?" Bernie Mac's cousin (????) in Charlie's Angels 2? These roles were absolutely unnecessary for the film, yet he's there. Somebody has been championing him for a long time.

I worked with him near the butt end of his Even Stevens run, and he couldn't be a better collaborator, at least on a live project.
