David Cross has had a difficult year.
First came the allegations of racist behaviour from comedian Charlene Yi last October, and then the now-infamous New York Times piece on Arrested Development in May, in which Cross and his male co-stars were accused of not supporting their castmate Jessica Walter as she broke down describing the emotional abuse she received from series co-star Jeffrey Tambor.
Rather than deny the criticism, Cross has owned up to it, admitting that conversations with his wife, actress / writer and Time’s Up / #MeToo activist Amber Tamblyn and his Arrested Development co-star Alia Shawkat have helped him reshape and examine his attitudes and approach.
We caught up with Cross while out on the road for his current Oh Come On tour to discuss how the past year has impacted him, why he’s planning on quitting Twitter, the reason he’s been cutting Trump jokes from his set, and much more. Cross performs at Montreal’s Olympia Theatre on Wednesday, July 25th at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $49.90 – $58.95, available here.
