“I think a lot of people are like, ‘Oh hey, Tobias is in town! I didn’t know he told jokes. What’s he gonna do? Just fuckin’ dress up in blue and fall down on stage?’” David Cross asks mockingly in his new Netflix special, Making America Great Again!, not long after cameras catch a woman heading for the exit.

I have to admit something. While watching the Republican National Convention and reading the news surrounding it, every time I came across the words “Never Trump”—aka the uprising led by terrified GOP stalwarts to block the seemingly unhinged real estate mogul’s nomination as their party’s presidential candidate—I kept thinking of “Never Nude,” the fictitious syndrome that forced Arrested Development’s Tobias Fünke, played by David Cross, to wear a pair of jorts at all times, underneath his clothes and...

Back in April, David Cross stopped in Austin to record a set from his comedy tour, Making America Great Again, for Netflix. During the hour-long performance, Cross tackled numerous hypocrisies and ironies that America seems unable to shake, from our inability to impose gun legislation to our dedication to founding fathers who, as Cross pointed out, would have their minds blown by even simple modern innovations like cotton candy. As the tour’s name suggests, Cross also spent a great...

But it also means the Democrats are fighting with one hand tied behind their back. And then there’s stand-up performer David Cross, perhaps best known as Tobias Fünke...
