The comic alter ego of Robert Smigel is set to vist O'Brien Friday, "Tonight" staffer/blogger Aaron Bleyaert announced Wednesday via Twitter.

It will be the first Triumph-O'Brien visit since O'Brien took over "Tonight" on June 1. But it won't be Triumph's first visit to "Tonight": The character has actually made a few appearances on Jay Leno's edition of the NBC staple.
