Oh, Come On: My 15 Minutes Shooting the Shit with David Cross (The Stranger)

Oh, Come On: My 15 Minutes Shooting the Shit with David Cross (The Stranger)

Depending on who you ask, David Cross is a pioneer of awkward surrealist comedy, that one guy that you can't remember the name of who somehow made it onto Alvin and the Chipmunks (which Cross has described as “the most miserable professional experience I have ever had in my life”), or a total asshole. For a guy who makes a living out of surfing the fine line between the obscene and the outrageous, his life out of character is unsurprisingly more of the same.

Whether problematic or laugh-provoking, Cross's creative ventures and characters persist. From the amusingly absurd sketch scenarios of Mr. Show, to the obsessive antics of unwanted Blue Man Group understudy Tobias Fünke of Arrested Development, Cross delivers a consistent, cringe-worthy charm. Fünke even got blued-up to a whole other universe entirely, as he recently made it into the world of Avengers: Infinity War in an easter egg cameo, though it wasn't actually Cross portraying Fünke due to a scheduling conflict.
