In one of the most awkward and brutal segments of his career, Triumph (played by Robert Smigel) laid into a group of 20-somethings who were asked to discuss their fledgling ideas about identity politics. In turn, Triumph responded to one girl’s explanation of trigger warnings with the promise that he would think about her while masturbating later, and soon after asked another if he could hump her leg and proceeded to do so after she said, “No.”
Triumph later worried about the potential effects political correctness might have on the great American institution of roasting, and then laughed through his own “appropriate” iteration of NSFW talk: “You’re a dirty little whore” has now become “You’re an unwashed, diminutive, victim of job-alternative deprivation.”
For his final trick — or “social experiment” — Triumph brought out a person to play up a variety of stereotypes and asked the group to describe him to a sketch artist as if he’d committed a crime. The results were quintessentially cringeworthy.
