The highlights of the DVD for me are Triumph's escorted tour of Hollywood (John Tesh tags along), his verbal attacks on celebrities (especially Simon Cowell, Jerry Springer, and William Shatner), his taunting of the ubernerds waiting in line for a Star Wars premiere, the scuffle with self-important Eminem at the VMA's, doing the weather at a local NBC affiliate in Honolulu, and best of all, singing with Bon Jovi in concert in front of a live audience in New Jersey with some appropriately modified lyrics.
This DVD is probably for existing fans only, as it is extremely obnoxious, generally in the form of poop references. The DVD includes many extras including outtakes and Triumph's music video, "I Keed," as well as his outlandish appearances on the Hollywood Squares, where he discusses Al Roker's flatus at length. Yes, it is pretty sophomoric, but it is generally very funny, and some bits rank up there with the best improv comedy ever caught on tape.
Triumph is the best insult comic dog currently working in show business, which makes this a great and unique DVD...for me to poop on.
Now, you can and you must get this DVD! It far exceeds even the title of the disc, with some of the great reports that Triumph filed for Conan's show. Yes, it's all here: The Star Wars geeks, Bon Jovi, Hollywood Squares, the trip to Toronto and of course his visits to the Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Garden.
That would be more than enough to make this worth the effort. In addition, there's a bunch of extras, including some of Triumph's studio appearances on the show, where he rakes such luminaries as "Teshie" John Tesh, Fabio, William Shatner, Simon Cowell and a bunch more over the coals as they sit right there!
And the bonus video "I Keed" from Triumph's first album "Come Poop With Me" is here too! With all of the funny, you'll laugh until you're pooped!
This DVD does an excellent job of sampling some of Triumph's best interviews. We get not one but two visits he takes to the Westminster Dog show, where he spends most of his time boasting of his many sexual conquests, getting thrown out the first time and coming the second pretending to be either Ed Bradley of 60 MINUTES or Barbara Walters.Read more ›
What could have been a minor bit of curiosity has become a full-time gig on the Conan O'Brien Show and even a cottage industry all due to the caustic wit and snarling antics of Triumph's creator and master, Robert Smigel. Last week, Triumph was even a guest on "The O'Reilly Factor," although he went really easy on the thin-skinned sandbagger from Levittown. I imagine it was because the pooch was in awe of being in the presence of a fellow insult-hurler par excellence.
Smigel, who created such off-the-wall "TV Funhouse" fare for Saturday Night Live as "Fun With Real Audio," "The Ex-Presidents" and "The Go-Lords," is the rather boychik looking brains behind his canine alter-ego. Smigel's bits work so well because while it would be extremely shocking and bizarre for a curly-haired Jewish nebbish to hump a poodle or to call Barbra Streisand a b*tch, it suddenly becomes uproariously hilarious when seeing a talking dog hand puppet doing same.
This collection's greatest bits are: Triumph's spoofs on lame musicians Jon Bon Jovi and John Tesh (though I must hand it to these two: They both rose quite highly in my estimation for so good-naturedly taking Triumph's dead-on poop on the chin, insult after insult!Read more ›
