The Jack and Triumph Show: Season One (2015)
Critic Consensus: Though the sitcom elements of The Jack and Triumph Show restrict the overall quality of the humor, the dog-on-the-street sequences evoke enough belly laughs to make it howl-worthy.
Tv Season Info
Is it fair for a comedy to mock others for milking an old act when the comedy itself is milking an old act? Probably not, but it can be funny.
Weirdly, the show is primarily a scripted, multi-camera sitcom, which is substantially less funny than Triumph's usual comedy routine.
Smigel's ad-lib style is no less sharp or scathing in this show, but the sitcom format really constricts how much of it he can do since most of the show is scripted.
As always Triumph is too absurd of a concept to ever feel truly mean-spirited, and the deeply likable Squibb and McBrayer help smooth out those edges even more.
The Jack and Triumph Show is more successful when it hews closer to the old sketches on Late Night With Conan O'Brien.
