'My comedy has evolved … Plus, my ulcer has grown.' (Philadelphia Inquirer)

'My comedy has evolved … Plus, my ulcer has grown.' (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Being David Cross should mean never having to say he’s sorry. His black-comedy stand-up albums such as 2016’s Making America Great Again are keen, weird observations of a world at war with itself. His inventive work as HBO’s Mr. Showsketch comedy team with Bob Odenkirk is audacious. And his acting job as the repressed Tobias Fünke in Arrested Development is a minor miracle. Yet, in anticipation of his Saturday date at the Fillmore for his Oh Come On tour, the caustic stand-up comedian, actor, and author knows there are issues he’s had to answer for: Last year, actress Charlyne Yi called Cross out via Twitter for mocking her with a faux-Asian accent, or his siding with Arrested Development costar Jeffrey Tambor, who was accused of sexual misconduct. But Cross says he and his comedy are evolving, and he’s not the same guy who got hammered before shows, and he knows when it’s time to apologize.
