David Cross thinks Arrested Development has blued itself for the final time

Like the Bluth family itself, Arrested Development has proven surprisingly hard to destroy over the years. For a while there, it kind of looked like no number of huge mistakes—Fox canceling it, massive delays between seasons, that god-awful and embarrassing New York Times interview—could stop the series from popping…

And now the right is supposedly outraged by David Cross' jokes about pooping on Trump

It’s Friday, which means we’re all amped for the weekend. But nobody is likely more excited than people who love to get up in arms about things they couldn’t give a shit about if the politics were reversed, because they get more excited than anyone, anywhere, about anything. Fire up the hypocritical outrage machine!

It sounds like filming the new season of Arrested Development was a total mess

Earlier this month, Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz addressed the on-set outburst that Jeffrey Tambor had at Jessica Walter while filming the show’s new season—an incident that turned a New York Times interview with the cast into a complete disaster—with Hurwitz explaining that he didn’t realize how awful…

“I didn’t do myself any favors”: David Cross talks racism and comedy

The A.V. Club David Cross interview is a tradition stretching back to the publication’s founding in the mid-’90s, and we’ve charted the course of his career from co-creator of a cult-favorite HBO show to prominent stand-up comedian to blockbuster Easter egg. As a comedian, Cross has always found comfort in discomfort,…

Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, How Did This Get Made?, more coming to Onion Comedy & Arts Festival

Big news, comedy fans: Our comedy festival returns May 30-June 3 at various venues in Chicago under a new name, The Onion Comedy & Arts Festival.

David Cross says his Charlyne Yi comments were from “asshole redneck racist character”

It’s better to address being called a racist sooner than later, but David Cross’ apology posts in response to Charlyne Yi’s tweets about that time he affected an Asian accent and challenged her to a “karate” fight have moved past expressing regret to reconstructing the encounter, crime procedural-style. Cross’ initial…

Patton Oswalt, Danny Glover, and David Cross join sci-fi drama Sorry To Bother You

A lot of comedy movies would kill to include Patton Oswalt, Danny Glover, and David Cross in its cast, and though the three of them will be appearing in a movie together, it’ll actually be a sci-fi-ish drama. According to Deadline, Oswalt, Glover, and Cross have joined the cast of Sorry To Bother You, the directorial…

Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, and Matthew Rhys join Spielberg’s The Papers

According to Variety, an actor from a TV show you like has just joined the cast of Stephen Spielberg’s The Papers (formerly known as The Post), which will tell the story of the Washington Post’s fight to publish the Pentagon Papers—which basically revealed the extent to which the U.S. government had fucked up the…

Yo La Tengo and David Cross (barely) remember “Sugarcube” 20 years later

As a teenager in the 1990s, I had two overarching career aspirations: to be a comedian and to play in a rock band. The fact that I suffered from crippling social anxiety and didn’t know a single guitar scale didn’t seem like a hindrance to either. The rising “alt” comics at the time—Janeane Garofalo, David Cross,…

Maine’s governor stole a Mr. Show bit, and David Cross is furious

Lots of people like to chuckle at the thought that at least comedians will have plenty of good material over the next four years. Unfortunately, that’s not exactly correct. Political parody works by comedians being more ridiculous than the politicians they’re mocking. But what do you do when the person you’re mocking…

David Cross is donating 100 percent of album sales to the ACLU through Christmas

These days, it seems like we’re all that lady from The Onion’s post-9/11 issue, baking American-flag cakes for lack of anything more productive to do. Where do we place our anger? What’s the best use of our time and resources? Given the lack of any prescriptive answer to the problem, we’re all casting about in the…

Pre-orders of David Cross’ new album include an “I Am A Fucking Idiot” hat
