David Cross thinks Trump may be comedy-proof. But his supporters aren't (The Cap Times)

David Cross called his 2016 comedy special and tour "Making America Great Again!," because, of course, it made sense at the time to get the Donald Trump references out of the way before Election Day.

Oh, well.

Now that Trump is president, the stand-up comedian is figuring out how to deal with Trump in his act, even though he doesn't consider himself a political comedian. On the new "Oh, Come On" tour, which comes to the Orpheum Theater on Thursday, Cross doesn't tackle Trump directly, but talks more about his supporters. 

Cross spoke with the Cap Times about comedy in the age of Trump, why he's not a "political comedian," and his role in Steven Spielberg's "The Post."
