David Cross on Trump: ‘I think we’ll correct ourselves’ (Leo Weekly)

by Brendan O'Malley August 09, 2018

It was no laughing matter when comedian David Cross reunited with his former comedy partner and “Mr. Show” co-creator Bob Odenkirk last year, on Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-nominated drama “The Post.”  “It’s nerve-racking to be telling such an important story that is so timely,” Cross recalled. Dramatic roles aside, Cross is best known as a stand-up comedian and comic actor, who has had integral roles on “The Ben Stiller Show,” “Mr. Show w/ Bob &...

by Brendan O'Malley August 08, 2018

Fun fact! Comedian, actor, writer, and director David Cross is a true-school ATLien … Or at least he spent his formative years in Atlanta, before embarking on a career in television and films. His screen time has been punctuated by career highs writing and acting on HBO’s sketch comedy show “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” playing the role of Tobias Fünke on “Arrested Development,” and most recently as Cassius's Green’s white voice in Boots...

David Cross hears your outrage over politics, but that’s not what he’s all about (The News & Observer)

David Cross hears your outrage over politics, but that’s not what he’s all about (The News & Observer)

by Brendan O'Malley August 03, 2018

Conceptual, cerebral and occasionally controversial, the comedy of David Cross is a genuine commodity in these days of the early 21st century. Cross is best known for his TV work – HBO’s “Mr. Show” and the hall-of-fame sitcom “Arrested Development” — but he’s also a veteran stand-up comedian with a reputation for razor-sharp topical runs and vicious political riffs. The real thrill with Cross, however, is his apparently hardwired ability to combine trenchant observational humor...

A rapid series of comical noises: A conversation with comedy genius David Cross (Smoky Mountain News)

by Brendan O'Malley August 01, 2018

If there was a single voice of reason amid the bombardment of deafening noise in the digital age — of mass media, of used car salesman politicians, of everyday informed/misinformed folks rambling on (and on) — David Cross might be that single voice. Whether through his iconic stand-up routines, his groundbreaking sketch comedy series “Mr. Show” or his immortal role as Tobias Funke in the sitcom “Arrested Development,” Cross is a bonafide comedy legend. For...

David Cross on his cathartic new tour, why he’s quitting Twitter, and that infamous NYT article (Bad Feeling Magazine)

by Brendan O'Malley July 13, 2018

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,...

David Cross on how to properly offend the masses (Detroit Metro Times)

David Cross on how to properly offend the masses (Detroit Metro Times)

by Brendan O'Malley July 11, 2018

David Cross is cursing his cab driver under his breath. He has been dropped off two blocks from where he needs to be and where he needs to be is pretty important, as his day is meticulously scheduled down to the penciled-in post-gym-class pizza slice between a meeting with an architect and his next interview. This type of scrupulous planning may seem out of character for the 54-year-old comedian and self-described "New York Hollywood liberal...

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

by Brendan O'Malley July 11, 2018

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...
