The 2016 election cycle seems to get more absurd at every turn, and late night talk show hosts have no shortage of material to lampoon the current political climate.
If there’s one comedian that excels at skewering the absurd, it’s Triumph the Comic Insult Dog, and the foul-mouthed canine pundit is back with a feature election special on Hulu: Triumph’s Election Watch 2016.
Fans will know Triumph (puppeteered and voiced by Robert Smigel) for the many years he appeared on the Conan O’Brien show. Smiegel’s “insult comedy” has taken on about every major fandom and event in the past 15 years.
This year’s crop of politicians know Triump well, as he’s already made appearances at both the Democratic and the Republican National Conventions for a special that came out in August (Triump’s Summer Election Special is available on Hulu now).
Triumph’s new 30 minute special covers the first presidential debate, includes a talk with 538’s head poll analyst Nate Silver, and sits down for an interview with Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson.
