David Cross

Emmy Award-winning comedian David Cross is a performer, writer, and producer for the big and small screen. His popular sketch comedy series Mr. Show with Bob and David, which he created with Bob Odenkirk, was recently relaunched by Netflix as four half-hour episodes titled W/ Bob & David. Cross’ IFC series Todd Margaret, which he created and stars in, premiered its third season earlier this year, about an ill-equipped American who finds himself running the London sales office of the energy drink company for which he works. Cross also reprised his beloved role as Dr. Tobias Fünke on the fourth season of Arrested Development on Netflix. During the show’s original Emmy Award-winning run on FOX, Cross was twice-nominated as part of the ensemble cast for a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Cross’s introduction to the TV scene came with The Ben Stiller Show, for which he shared a 1993 Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Writing in a Variety or Music Program. The original Mr. Show with Bob and David received three Emmy Award nominations for both Writing and Music & Lyrics. Cross also served as a writer and contributor for Tenacious D and wrote, produced, and starred in the animated Comedy Central series Freak Show, which he co-created with H. Jon Benjamin.

In 2014, Cross wrote and directed the dark indie film Hits, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. He has appeared in a host of films, including Kill Your Darlings, alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Michael C. Hall; It's a Disaster, with Julia Stiles and America Ferrera; Abel; Year One; Christopher Guest’s Waiting for Guffman; Men in Black; and Men in Black II; Ghost World; Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; School for Scoundrels; I’m Not There; and the animated films Megamind, Kung Fu Panda 2, and Curious George.

In 2013, Cross released a book with Bob Odenkirk entitled Hollywood Said No! Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show, which made the New York Times Bestseller List. Cross and Odenkirk embarked on a multi-city tour in support of the book, performing their first official stand-up comedy shows together since their sold-out national tour in 2002. In 2009, Cross embarked on a solo stand-up comedy in support of his first book, I Drink for a Reason. The hugely successful show was filmed at Boston's Wilbur Theater, premiering as Bigger and Blackerer on EPIX and released on CD and DVD by Sub Pop. Cross’ previous comedy special, David Cross: The Pride is Back, aired on HBO in 1999. He has released two other comedy albums, Shut Up You Fucking Baby, which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album, in 2002 and It's Not Funny in 2004.

Cross lives in New York and is married to actress Amber Tamblyn.
