I love Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. His clips are hilarious and he is a valued member of the Conan O’Brien team. For those of you who don’t know what or who I am talking about, let me explain. Triumph is a cigar smoking Yugoslavian Mountain Hound who visits various red carpet events and – as his name may suggest – insults people. Celebrities in general. But not exclusively. It’s pure genius. He has been a little quiet since his last official appearance at the 2007 Tony Awards which he aptly named the “Who’s Who of Who Cares” and recently visited the hipsters and beer guzzling guests of the Great American Beer Festival – or as Triumph puts it “The Distant Fathers Expo” – and needless to say he managed to complete the simple task which Conan had set before him. To insult.
You stay classy.
