For the second time this week, a late-night talk show took shots at a New York governor, this time with former Gov. George Pataki on the receiving end.
Pataki ended up face-to-face with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, a cigar-toting puppet voiced by well-known comedy writer Robert Smigel for the Conan O’Brien show, after the last presidential debate on Monday. The much-anticipated segment aired last night.
We’ll let the clip speak for itself — Fair warning: The jokes are a bit PG13 for this blog — but it’s worth a watch. Pataki proves to be a good sport, laughing at a joke about same-sex marriage before bailing just as Triumph makes a raunchy joke about Kim Kardashian.
Rep. Peter King, a Republican from Long Island, also makes a cameo. King appears on screen while on his cell phone, to which Triumph says: “This is legendary congressman Peter King of New York. He is calling security because he believes this reporter is a Muslim.”
Current Gov. Andrew Cuomo was late-night fodder this week as well, with Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert dubbing him “Puff the Magic Governor” for his position on decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana.
