Staffers at Triumph The Insult Comic Dog and Late Show have been jailed in the United States Capitol ...

After filming segments for the CBS late-night show, a crew of nine employees from The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, including Robert Smigelwriter and comedian Triumph the Insult Comic Dogwere detained in the Capitol on June 16th.

When the incident occurred with the Capitol Police in Congress, CBS confirmed to Variety that the crew was permitted to film.

On June 16, the individuals were detained in the Longworth House office building at 8:30 p.m., unintentionally with congressional identification. On June 16, he was found unintentionally and without Congressional identification, in a sixth-floor hallway. Smigel and the six others who were detained were found later that evening.

The statement continued, and visitors were told to leave the building early in the day as part of a group led by the USCP. They were charged with unlawful entry. This is a serious criminal investigation and may result in additional criminal charges after consulting with the US Attorney.

In a statement, CBS seemed to spit off the event as a simple misgiving.

On Wednesday, June 15, and Thursday, June 16, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog was on-site at the Capitol with a production team to record interviews for a comedy segment on behalf of The Late Show. After leaving the members offices on their last interview of the day, the production team continued to film stand-ups and other final comedy elements in the rooms when they were detained by Capitol authorities.

According to Fox News, the group was detained outside the offices of Republican House members Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.). The incident has not been surprising as it continues to the public eye.

By his appearances on NBCs Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Conan OBrien, Smigel made Triumph the Insult Comic Dog a popular television character in the late 1990s.

On Paramount+, see The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
