Product Description

Viewers of NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" have long clamored for a collection of vintage poops from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Since his first appearance on "Late Night" in 1997 the raucous raunchy cigar-smoking bow tie-wearing poodle-humping pooch has made dog meat of everything from the esteemed Westminster Dog Show to his celebrity-trashing of Bon Jovi "Hollywood Squares" and the "Video Music Awards" to the infamous romp through Quebec and the legendary Attack of the Nerds at a Star Wars premiere. Throw in an additional 90 minutes of bonus footage including Triumph's very first appearance other in-studio collisions with guests like Jerry Springer and Simon Cowell his "I Keed" music video and never-before-seen outtakes and you have the ultimate anthology..."for me to poop on!"System Requirements: Running Time 61 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: TELEVISION/SERIES & SEQUELS Rating: NR UPC: 031398159629 Manufacturer No: 15962

Life's a bitch, or at least it is to Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog. Since his first appearance in 1997, Triumph has emerged a breed apart as Late Night with Conan O'Brien's biggest breakout star. In fact, not even Conan himself has had a bestselling CD, or appeared on Hollywood Squares. Triumph gives new meaning to the honor "Best in Show" with this collection of his most memorable Late Night appearances, including his now-classic reports at the Westminster Dog Show (where he takes full advantage of backstage access, if you get my cruder meaning), his Red Carpet interviews at MTV's Video Music Awards, and, the pick of the litter, his visit to the Star Wars "uber-dorks" waiting in line for the opening of Attack of the Clones (To a Darth Vader impersonator in full regalia: "Which of these buttons calls your parents to pick you up?"). For Triumph fans, this DVD is a tremendous, exciting experience... FOR ME TO POOP ON! --Donald Liebenson

This DVD is a companion piece to Conan's tenth anniversary show DVD, which I prefer due to the broader range of material, but this DVD is definitely the most poop intensive DVD on the market anywhere. The box modestly claims a 61 minute running time, but when all the extras are included it's actually about 2 1/2 hours long.

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.

If you have seen Late Night With Conan O'Brien, you are familiar with the wise-cracking puppet dog that brings the laughs, hard.

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!

Highly Recommended.

Triumph the Insult Comedy Dog is one of the most unlikely successes of the past ten years. Veteran SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE writer Robert Smigel has managed to create the funniest and most irreverent insult comedy act since Don Rickles, though with two major differences: unlike Rickles he is truly funny, and unlike Rickles, whose insults rarely are personal, Smigel/Triumph hits uncomfortably close to home (i.e., his insults really are insults, while Rickle's are usually invalid name calling). Appearing primarily on the Conan O'Brien show, Smigel has managed to parlay what would have with a less funny individual into a one-note gimmick act into a significant second career. Triumph is a cigar chomping miniature Rottweiller with what appears to be an East European accent, who covers, as he loves to put it, various events "for me to poop on." I personally am not drawn to the sexual and scatological humor in Smigel's act, and I haven't found Triumph's dry humping a host of interviewees to be all that funny. But his one-liners are absolutely hysterical, and the way he can perfectly bury someone with a deadly accurate crack is a thing of wonder. How can you take someone seriously dressed up as Darth Vader ("the nerd before whom all other nerds tremble") when Triumph asks which button on his chest pack contacts the wearer's parents to come pick him up?

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.

The premise of "Triumph the Comic Insult Dog" is one of those strokes of genius that comes along once every decade or so: A rubber rotweiller sock-puppet (though referred to in this disc as a "Yugoslavian hound," probably because his master is Jewish and doesn't feel too comfortable with the Third Reich connotations of owning a Teutonic terrier) who chomps on an unlit stogy and hurls invective and Don Rickles-style brickbats at easy targets in a Borscht-belt Slavic accent while humping their legs!

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!
