Triumph the Insult Comic Dog appeared on the season premiere of Steve Buscemi‘s Park Bench AOL show. As always, Triumph was not impressed with his surroundings. He wasted no time getting down to sarcastic business: “So, you parlayed the lead role in an HBO drama into an AOL talk show?” Buscemi takes the joke well. He’s prepared for all the insults coming his way, and that’s a damn good thing.
Triumph’s main target during this episode appears to be Buscemi’s face. “You’re a legendary character actor, which is a polite way of saying there’s something wrong with your face… how do you get your eyes to bulge like that? By looking in the mirror? ‘Oh my god, look at my face!’ See what I’m saying?” Then, Triumph moves on to Buscemi’s teeth before comparing him to a few reptiles and moving back to his face.
This is pretty brutal, folks. Many people would forgive Buscemi for taking a shot at Robert Smigel, the voice of Triumph, for these merciless remarks.
A brief programming note: AOL will not release Park Bench in four-episode chunks as they did last season. The show moved to a weekly release format, which may forecast the end of binge watching as we know it.
