TOMATOMETER

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.

Critic Reviews for The Jack and Triumph Show Season One

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Feb 26, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 25, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The Jack and Triumph Show is more successful when it hews closer to the old sketches on Late Night With Conan O'Brien.

Feb 25, 2015 | Full Review…

The show's most memorable moments occur when Triumph veers from the script and ventures into the real world, much like he first did on Late Night with Conan O'Brien almost two decades ago.

Triumph (a.k.a. Robert Smigel) still yields a few belly laughs, but casting a dog puppet in a multi-camera sitcom, even with throwback references and meta jokes, proves just a bit too ALF for its own good.

Top Critic

There's a spirit of chaos around The Jack & Triumph show that is almost as intoxicating as anything its target audience might have sitting in their Volcano vaporizer.

Basically a sketch stretched about to the point of breaking, Jack & Triumph works best at its most raggedy - when the seams show and you glimpse the party behind the production.

The show is hilarious with a capital If: It's hilarious If you like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
