About David Cross
A fearlessly acerbic comedian whose material (often dealing with social and political themes) engages some audiences and enrages others, David Cross' creative risk-taking helped make him a major figure in American humor from the 1990s onward. Also known as an actor (most notably as Tobias Fünke on the sitcom Arrested Development) and a writer working in film, television, and essays, Cross trades in satirical comedy with a confrontational bent, though his intelligence and daring as a performer elevate him from one-dimensional shock comics. He made an impressive debut on record with 2002's Grammy-nominated Shut Up, You Fucking Baby!, he offered two shows in one package with 2010's Bigger and Blackerer, and he dealt with parenthood (among other things) in his signature edgy style on 2019's Oh Come On.
