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

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...

Dispatches From The Front Lines: A Quick Hello from The Road (July 11, 2018)

by Brendan O'Malley July 11, 2018

Hey guys, checking in after a couple of weeks into the tour.Started in New England where a lady and her date brought their two sons to sit in the front row of the Boston show. These kids were like 9 years old. What?! If you've seen the show you know that I have a whole bit about getting a colonic that has, let's say, a bit of "performance" to it. Who brings nine year olds to a comedy show?! Pretty...

An Urgent Statement from Alex Azar, Head of HHS, Regarding the Golden Ticket

by Brendan O'Malley July 09, 2018

Good people of North America - utterly confounding news! The GOLDEN TICKET for my (one would presume) upcoming shows remains unclaimed! What the devil?! We know that the hats and bundles sold out (in under 24 hours mind you) and that in one of those packages lies the Golden Ticket in all of its golden glory. What are you waiting for? What is your reason for keeping it hidden? If you are afraid of tainting it with human hands then wear...

David Cross on Finding Comedy in Unfunny Times (Shepherd Express)

David Cross on Finding Comedy in Unfunny Times (Shepherd Express)

by Brendan O'Malley July 06, 2018

When David Cross filmed his confrontational 2016 comedy special Making America Great Again!, Donald Trump had yet to secure the Republican nomination and Cross, like many observers, was dead certain he’d never actually be elected president. What a difference two years makes. Cross is now touring an even more-divided country behind a new show while trying to process what feels like a constant barrage of dismaying headlines. Ahead of his stop at the Pabst Theater...

David Cross Is Fed Up (Nuvo)

David Cross Is Fed Up (Nuvo)

by Brendan O'Malley July 05, 2018

Like much of America, comedian David Cross is sick and tired of our president.“There’s such a nonstop flood of awful sewage that’s coming from him and the White House,” Cross says. “Any outrage you might have is supplanted within the hour by something else.”Currently out on the road as part of his “Oh Come On” tour, Cross will make his way to the Egyptian Room on Saturday, July 14. Ahead of his Indy appearance, we...

'It's irreplaceable': Nothing can keep David Cross away from stand-up (Regina Leader-Post)

'It's irreplaceable': Nothing can keep David Cross away from stand-up (Regina Leader-Post)

by Brendan O'Malley July 05, 2018

The idea of being in the same room with my kid, even if she’s playing with a toy and has her back to me, and I’m on the phone or I’m on Twitter, I mean, I should just stop being a parent. I should give that kid to a loving, nurturing couple somewhere — even if they are gay,” Cross says. The last part is said in jest. It’s a soft version of the type...

David Cross works fan feedback into new set (The Spokesman-Review)

When planning out his OH COME ON tour, comedian/actor/writer David Cross thought big. The tour takes him across North America this summer, then to Europe, then back to North America for another leg in the fall. He’ll stop by the Bing Crosby Theater on Monday. Rather than piece a show together using bits from different sets from throughout the years, Cross decided to actively build a new set. With a bunch of ideas rolling around, Cross took...

It’s been 36 years since David Cross first stepped on-stage at an open mike in Atlanta and gave standup comedy the old college try. A year later, he moved to Boston and started really developing his comedic voice and chops. He made a splash nationally in the ’90s, and he’s been everywhere since, from the cult sketch show Mr. Show With Bob & David to playing Tobias Fünke on Arrested Development. Now he’s a grizzled...

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

by Brendan O'Malley June 25, 2018

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...

“Yeah I was actually in Godfather Part II,” David Cross said when asked if he’d ever been an Easter egg in a major Hollywood blockbuster before. “It was a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ part. I was very young and they had me in between two pieces of bacon.” Of course, he was joking as he explained with a laugh the nexus of his subtle appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. “(Avengers directors) Joe and Anthony...
