David Cross announces 'Making America Great Again!' nationwide stand-up tour
You just recently enjoyed David Cross in the Netflix sketch comedy With Bob and David, which reunited him with his Mr. Show partner Bob Odenkirk. You are able to enjoy him again in Thursday’s return of IFC’s Todd Margaret, which reunites him with a character he hasn’t played in several years. And soon you will be able to enjoy him back onstage: The Arrested Development alum, who was Grammy-nominated for his stand-up album Shut Up You F—ing Baby, announced on Monday night’s edition of The Daily Show that he is launching his first stand-up tour in six years.
Titled “Making America Great Again!” — which is not to be confused with Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again!” campaign slogan, which is to be confused with Ronald Reagan’s “Let’s Make America Great Again” campaign slogan— the 51-date nationwide tour kicks off Jan. 26 in San Diego and wraps up April 24 in Oklahoma City.
“I am extremely excited to get back out on the road after five long years away,” the comedian said in a statement. “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.”
Tickets go on sale on Jan. 8 and can be purchased at www.davidcrosstour2016.com.
