Award-winning comedian David Cross is heading back on the road this year with a stand-up comedy tour playing theatres across North America. Crowned one of Comedy Central’s Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All Time, Cross will launch his Making America Great Again! tour on January 26 at Observatory North Park in San Diego, California, to continue nationwide thru April 2016. 

Tickets for his February 2 Vancouver show go on sale this Friday, January 8 at 10 am via JFL Northwest’s website.

One of the stars of the Emmy-winning comedy series Arrested Development 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.
“I am extremely excited to get back out on the road after five long years away,” said Cross. “I was very busy writing for The View, but now that the kids are off to college, my wife’s regiment has been transferred to McMurdo Station in the South Pole, and I’m near completion on Fallout 4, it’s time to start up the bus and bring my patented, fart-inducing laugh winces to a town near you. See you soon!”
Cross last toured in 2009 with a solo stand-up show in support of his New York Times Bestseller, I Drink for a Reason. The hugely successful comedy show was filmed at Boston’s Wilbur Theater for a special, entitled Bigger and Blackerer, which premiered on EPIX in April 2010 before being released on CD and DVD by Sub Pop. 

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 last July.
Cross has released two other comedy albums: Grammy Award-nominated Shut Up You Fucking Baby and It’s Not Funny. In 2003 he released the DVD Let America Laugh, a documentary film of his groundbreaking stand up tour of alternative and indie rock clubs.
If you’re not yet familiar with this iconic comedian, IFC is currently premiering the six-episode third season of Todd Margaret, created by and starring Cross, with the first three debuting January 7 and the following three on January 14. 

You can also catch him in 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.

Additionally, David’s provided voices for several animated films including Megamind, the Kung Fu Panda series and Curious George.
