Okay, so I’m probably the last person on Earth to have discovered comedian David Cross, but now that I have, I’m a fan. He is probably best known as the character “Tobias” on the television series Arrested Development.
Cross revealed in an interview that he once roomed with Louis CK, and their mutual influence is easy to see. I think Cross is edgier though: he goes right up to the line, and just when you think he’s going to pull back, he reaches over and smacks you in the head. He’s what listening to Lenny Bruce back in the day must have been like.
Warning: Cross is savagely anti-religion; if you’re likely to be offended by such, pass this one by. Not Suitable For Work–lots of cursing and bad taste.
