Stephen Colbert Addresses Late Show Staffers’ “Unpleasant” Arrest at the Capitol

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is out of the doghouse.

Four days after Capitol Police confirmed the popular puppet, voiced by Robert Smigel, and seven members of The Late Show‘s production team were arrested and charged with unlawful entry to the U.S. Capitol, Stephen Colbert addressed the incident on the June 20 episode of the late-night program.

As Colbert explained, the Late Show staffers and Smigel were detained while filming extra “jokey” scenes at the Longworth House Office Building in Washington D.C. They’ve since been released.

While discussing the incident, Colbert referenced the Jan. 6 attacks on the Capitol, which is currently being investigated by the House select committee, saying, “The Capitol Police are much more cautious than they were 18 months ago and for a very good reason.”

“The Capitol police were just doing their job, my staff was just doing their job, everyone was very professional, everyone was very calm,” Colbert continued. “My staffers were detained, processed and released. A very unpleasant experience for my staff.”
