While filming popular stand-up specials, Cross last toured in 2009 with a solo stand-up show in support of his New York Times bestseller, “I Drink for a Reason.” That hugely successful comedy show – entitled “Bigger and Blackerer” – was filmed at Boston’s Wilbur Theater and premiered on EPIX before being released on CD and DVD. His previous comedy special, “David Cross: The Pride is Back,” aired on HBO in 1999 and was named one of the 25 best stand-up comedy specials and concert films of all time by Rolling Stone magazine in July 2015.
One of the hilarious stars of the Emmy-winning comedy series, “Arrested Development,” (Dr. Tobias Fünke) and one half of the creative duo (along with Bob Odenkirk) behind three-time Emmy-nominated sketch comedy series, “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” Cross is himself an Emmy-winner for his writing on “The Ben Stiller Show.”
His relaunched sketch comedy series, “With Bob and David,” is currently available on Netflix. In January, IFC premiered the six-episode third season of “Todd Margaret,” created by and starring Cross. He wrote and directed the indie film,“Hits,” which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. He has appeared in such films as “Kill Your Darlings,” “It’s a Disaster,” “Year One,” “Waiting for Guffman,” “Men in Black I & II,” “Ghost World,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Pitch Perfect 2” and “I’m Not There,” and has provided voices for several animated films, including “Megamind,” the “Kung Fu Panda” series and “Curious George.”
