... for a dog, it's like climbing Mount Everest

My wife is a much more evolved creature than I am, so she declined to watch "The Best of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog" with me this evening.

But come on, Robert Smigel is a freaking genius! Not just for Triumph, but also for SNL's TV Funhouse, Ambiguously Gay Duo, and the Synchro-Vox interviews with Bush/Clinton on Conan (moving lips on static picture). And he was kicked out of The Westminster Dog Show twice! Nobel Prize worthy! Definitely read these two interviews if you like his work, and also like hearing the back story on assorted comedy show goings on. It will be too "inside baseball" for many, however.

Here he is in the first DVD's best bit: he showed up at the lengthy line for Star Wars: Attack of the Clones where assorted nerds waited in costume. He eviscerated them, and they loved it. Fantastic stuff, about 8 minutes of streaming video.

Here he is with a much briefer interaction with J-Lo.
