A conversation with David Cross (Creative Loafing Atlanta)

Fun fact! Comedian, actor, writer, and director David Cross is a true-school ATLien … Or at least he spent his formative years in Atlanta, before embarking on a career in television and films. His screen time has been punctuated by career highs writing and acting on HBO’s sketch comedy show “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” playing the role of Tobias Fünke on “Arrested Development,” and most recently as Cassius's Green’s white voice in Boots Riley’s Orwellian comedy film, Sorry to Bother You.

Cross is on the road again, making stand up appearances across North America as part of 2018’s Oh Come On Tour. On Sat., Aug. 11, he makes a stop at Atlanta Symphony Hall.
