muppet aliensYou can watch clips of the Jim Henson Company's Puppet Up! Uncensored improv shows on TBS' Laugh Lab site. New sketches will be added every Wednesday.

Puppet Up! Uncensored is an improved stage show from the Jim Henson Company that's essentially Who's Line Is It Anyway?, but with puppets. A Puppet Up! special was shown on TBS not long ago, and I found myself enjoying it, albeit intermittently.

Triumph the Insult Comic DogLate Night with Conan O'Brien's resident funny dog Triumph was inducted into the Las Vegas Police Department's K-9 Unit at this week's Las Vegas Comedy Festival. The cigar-chomping insult comedian accepted the honor with gratitude, "This is really an honor for me because my brother was a bomb-sniffing dog. In fact, that's how he was able to find Ben Affleck's last three movies." Fortunately, Triumph refrained from sniffing any of his K-9 colleagues' butts and, as of yet, has not pooped on any unsuspecting officers.

The week-long comedy festival was sponsored by HBO and AEG. Most of the performances were taped for later broadcast on TBS including the Jim Henson Company's improv performance Puppet Up! and Comic Relief 2006. The festival also played host to Dave Chappelle's latest no-show.

This isn't the warm and wacky Muppet comedy of yore. Puppet Up! Uncensored! is blue comedy developed by a whole new team of writers and performers looking to bring a fresh voice and renewed primetime supremacy to the Henson name. In addition to the improv performance, TBS has ordered up 30 episodes of Uncensored for its forthcoming broadband channel and remains in negotiations over the semi-improvised late night talk show project.
