Comedian David Cross is Coming to the Merriam Theater October 20th
You’ve laughed over the characters antics that he commited alongside Bob Odenkirk in Mr. Show, and the trouble he got himself into as Tobias Funke on Arrested Development. Maybe you’ve appreciated his roles in movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Run Ronnie Run, Waiting For Guffman, and Scary Movie 2. Or maybe you’ve even been enough of a dedicated fan to catch him on An imated Shows like Aqua Team Hunger Force, Tom Goes To The Mayor, and King of the Hill. But first and foremost David Cross is a hilarious stand up comic, and is set to go back to his roots with a National Tour.
David Cross has drawn an immense cult following for his outrageous character acting, which was perhaps showcased best in Mr. Show, an Emmy-nominated HBO sketch comedy show in which Cross played an incredible array of absurd, strange, deranged, and wicked – yet often disturbingly “normal” – characters. This talent undoubtedly explains David Cross’s tendency for quirky movie and television cameos, including small but memorable roles in Men in Black, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and the Bob Dylan biopic, I’m Not There as poet Allen Ginsberg. David Cross’s stand-up comedy and humor is often self-deprecating, crude, leftist, and controversial, and he is known to break into song, showing off his painfully hilarious, overweening singing voice with nearly paradoxical range and strength. He has released several comedy albums, including 2002’s Shut Up, You Fucking Baby! and 2004’s It’s Not Funny, as well as Let America Laugh, his first stand up DVD, released in 1999. He also just recently released a version of his book Comedy By The Numbers on CD.
David Cross is playing the Merriam Theater in Philadelphia on October 20th. But he also has a lineup of upcoming dates in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, Denver, Austin, and Chicago. A truly one-of-a-kind and uniquely talented comedian, David Cross is a spectacle that cannot be missed.
