Live - David Cross Preps For Overseas Jaunt With UCB Hilarity





For three sold out nights, David Cross takes residence at the UCB Theatre to rehearse for his three week stint at London’s Soho Theater. Pulling material from It’s Not Funny, Shut Up, You Fucking Baby! and even some references from Mr. Show and Bob Odenkirk, Cross manages to please, well, his fans. The crowd, filled with devotees who requested bits by their titles (i.e. "Gabriel," "Terrorism = Jealousy"), eagerly sat through jokes performed verbatim. Unlike hearing your favorite band finally play your favorite song live, enduring a comedian repeating old material does not rock. But credit must be doled out accordingly because Cross compensates by giving out various paraphernalia from his former and present endeavors (Ben Stiller Show, Arrested Development, etc.) when he flubs a line or senses the crowd’s restlessness. Perhaps he’s onto something…


Hear Dave take on Bush, the Catholic church and homosexuals all over again at UCB at 9:30p until 8/5.
