'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)

by Brendan O'Malley June 29, 2018

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...

BritBox Adding John Cleese, David Cross Comedies (Hollywood Reporter)

by Brendan O'Malley June 29, 2018

BritBox, the subscription video streaming service from BBC Studios and ITV, in which AMC Networks also has a stake, has picked up two U.K. comedies to exclusively stream in the U.S. Bliss, from David Cross (Arrested Development) and starring Stephen Mangan (Episodes) and Heather Graham (Austin Powers), will be added to the platform in August, with the John Cleese- and Alison Steadman-led ensemble Hold the Sunset following in September. The pair of rom-coms join BritBox’s first original...

by Brendan O'Malley June 27, 2018

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...

...america... really, really great! Autographed Vinyl and Russian MAGA(ish) Hat Bundles Available Now (June 20, 2018)

by Brendan O'Malley June 21, 2018

Dear Friends,As anybody who really knows me knows, my greatest passion in life is needlepoint. I am a two-time winner of the Greater Augusta Silver Needle Award and my work has been featured in “Elderly Magazine."Outside of my suspicious and almost desperate need for Russian approval, I'd say needlepoint is my "raison d'être," as my enemies, the French, might say. But fuck the French, they're not Russians who are my life-long friends. And in preparation for my 2018...

'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)

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...
