Colbert Production Crew Arrested At US Capitol After Taping Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Skit

The post Colbert Production Crew Arrested At US Capitol After Taping Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Skit appeared first on Consequence.

Members of a production crew working for the Late Show with Stephen Colbert were arrested on Thursday night at a US Capitol office building after taping a sketch involving Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Nine individuals — including Triumph creator Robert Smigel — were charged with unlawful entry.

According to CBS (via The Hollywood Reporter), the production crew was on-site at the Capitol on June 15th and 16th recording authorized and pre-arranged interviews with members of Congress. “After leaving the members’ offices on their last interview of the day, the production team stayed to film stand-ups and other final comedy elements in the halls when they were detained by Capitol Police,” CBS said in a statement.

17. I wonder if they had their visitor tickets around their necks

That’s usually required. The letter authorizing this would have stopped the arrest as well.

4. I'm sure Stephen won't take this as a reason to roast a few people to cinders on his show

By which I mean, buy popcorn futures.

11. My wife saw a news flash on YouTube!

We watched about about 5 minutes of False New's Jesse Watters interviewing a S.C. congressman conflating it with the Capital storming. I guess if all you have is bullshit, that's what you shovel.

14. It always works for them . A few comedians staying longer than they should have. Someone just

had to say. "Guys it's time to leave" and they would have left. Now it will be an around the clock story on fox news brainwashing the masses.
