Robert Smigel‘s Triumph the Insult Comic Dog just landed one of the bigger laughs at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Summer Press Tour. The chuckles came courtesy of a quip that’s not for everybody — especially TLC executives.
“It is quite an honor to have joined the Hulu team,” Triumph began. “You know, everybody loves Hulu. Time Warner just announced it now owns a piece of Hulu.
“Fox owns Hulu, NBC owns Hulu — even Disney,” the puppet continued. “Yes, Hulu has so many fingers inside it, it could easily be a member of the Duggar Family.”
Smigel — hiding behind a couch for a minute — opened his Friday afternoon panel with a joke of the more inside variety.
“The last time I was here, I referred to the TCA as the “Triple Chin Association,” Triumph said to media members. “That would be less-appropriate today, as [HitFix critic] Alan Sepinwall is not here yet.”
Sorry, Alan. We could all stand to lose a few.
“Triumph’s Summer Election Special 2016” premieres Thursday, Aug. 11 on Hulu.
