It seems like just yesterday all of Canada was in a huff about Triumph the Comic Insult Dog's appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Triumph did what he does and roasted French-Canadians in his typical blunt and vulgar fashion. I attended the taping of this infamous episode, and was quite surprised at the attention this "attack" received in the press.
Triumph is returning to Quebec and will appear in his one-dog show, Make Poop Not War, on July 22 as part of the Just for Laughs comedy festival. Just for Laughs said in a news release yesterday that Triumph will "extend his paw in a demonstration of conciliation and understanding" and will show the unbroadcast excerpts of his last trip to Quebec that Steve and I saw back in February.
As I suspected, French-Canadians got the joke. It's English Canada that needs to lighten up a little.
