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

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

by Brendan O'Malley June 21, 2018

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,...

David Cross Tries Something New With His 'Oh Come On' Tour (Forbes)

David Cross Tries Something New With His 'Oh Come On' Tour (Forbes)

by Brendan O'Malley June 14, 2018

David Cross is a controversial jack of all trades, and he knows it. In fact, the occasionally polarizing public figure he sometimes draws of himself is why he finds himself returning to stand-up. "It's solely my voice," Cross tells me while discussing his upcoming Oh Come On comedy tour. "I don't need anybody's permission." That's not to say the comic thinks being a stand-up gives him permission to say whatever he wants, of course. Yet it doesn't...

David Cross on Net Neutrality, Netflix and His 'Feud' With Miro Weinberger (Seven Days Vermont)

David Cross on Net Neutrality, Netflix and His 'Feud' With Miro Weinberger (Seven Days Vermont)

by Brendan O'Malley June 13, 2018

Earlier this year, when David Cross announced that he would be returning to perform in Burlington, he appeared to take a shot at Mayor Miro Weinberger. "Well, Burlington, you asked for it, you got it," he wrote on Facebook. "Despite Miro Weinberger doing his best to keep me out, I'm coming." The post went viral-ish, at least in Queen City circles, shared many times by bewildered fans puzzled by the actor-comedian's apparent rift with the...

DAVID CROSS HAS CHANGED A LOT SINCE HE CAME OF COMEDIC AGE IN BOSTON. FOR STARTERS, HE’S FAMOUS NOW. (Dig Boston)

by Brendan O'Malley June 12, 2018

I’m one of those annoying, stubborn pricks who is incapable of liking somebody or something that is hugely popular. David Cross is one of few exceptions, along with Wu-Tang Clan, pizza, and little else. His original run of the HBO sketch gem Mr. Show with Bob [Odenkirk] and David taught me to embrace and seek out unconventional humor, and it has been exciting watching him rise from his start as just another gifted writer and...

How David Cross’s Jokes — and Approach — Changed After 9/11 (Vulture)

How David Cross’s Jokes — and Approach — Changed After 9/11 (Vulture)

by Brendan O'Malley June 04, 2018

Since Trump starting running for office, and especially since he was elected, there has been an ongoing conversation about the nature of comedy in these times: what comedians discuss, and how they discuss it. The debate got me thinking about comedy during the last Republican presidency, under George W. Bush. Even though it’s not one-to-one, there’s something to be learned from the comedy that was produced while Dubya was in office, right after 9/11, when tensions,...

Ain’t no Sunshine State in David Cross’ Comedy Tour (The Chicago Sun Times)

by Brendan O'Malley May 31, 2018

Before he became the innuendo-loving Never-Nude Tobias Funke on “Arrested Development,” or one-half of the brilliant “Mr. Show,” David Cross was cutting his teeth in the comedy world during stand-up open-mic nights at Lounge Ax, the once dominant hub of music and entertainment on Lincoln Avenue. “It was right around the mid-‘80s, and I only lived in Chicago for six months but it was a hellish summer,” says Cross, who was broke and making do...

David's Interview with Paste Magazine (May 21, 2018)

by Brendan O'Malley May 21, 2018

When David Cross last went on a stand-up tour, Donald Trump hadn’t been elected president yet. The reality TV host’s political ambitions had already left a huge impact on Cross’s act, though. The co-creator of Mr. Show and co-star of Arrested Development called that 2016 jaunt the “Making America Great Again!” tour, and as our review of the Netflix special attests, it was a stridently political hour that dug in hard against the anti-intellectualism and demagoguery...

David Cross doesn’t do ‘dad comedy’ (OK, maybe a little) (May 18, 2018)

David Cross doesn’t do ‘dad comedy’ (OK, maybe a little) (May 18, 2018)

by Brendan O'Malley May 18, 2018

A lot has changed since David Cross’s “Making America Great Again!” tour in 2016. Donald Trump won the presidential election. Cross and his wife, actress Amber Tamblyn, had a daughter, their first child, in February 2017. And he has taped season five of “Arrested Development,” which premieres on Netflix May 29. So Cross will have plenty to talk about when his new “Oh, Come On!” tour comes to the Wilbur Theatre June 17-18. Cross has...
