David Cross talks comedy, Trump and being back in Nebraska (Omaha World Herald)

David Cross is a busy guy.

In the last year, the comedian has appeared in a new season of "Arrested Development," starred in the "U.K." comedy "Bliss" and snagged role in Steven Spielberg's "The Post" along with roles in "Archer," "Goliath," "Sorry to Bother You" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

But he's still doing stand-up.

"It’s kind of at my core," he told The World-Herald.

His last time in Nebraska, Cross skewered just about everything imaginable, and you can see the material on his latest Netflix special, "Making America Great Again."

He's back on the road, stopping Sunday at the Holland Performing Arts Center.

His show is full of jokes: One third standard stand-up, one third anecdotes and one third about politics. (Yes, President Trump figures into the famously dark, surreal and aggressive comedian's set.)

We caught up with him before he came to town.
