Okay - between our Back Talk Q&A and this blog post - we've been a bit David Cross crazy for the past few weeks. Who can blame us? The guy's a genius, and a funny one at that. And it seems we're not the only fans; David's Boston date sold so quickly that the Comedy Connection had to add a second show, and Cross himself decided to tape his new special during both of them.
What's wrong with this picture? Give up? It's of a concert at the Wilbur Theatre (home of Boston's Comedy Connection), and nobody is drinking. They're just sitting there, either bored and sober or catatonic on account of how many painkillers they chewed beforehand to compromise for the lack of liquor license.
In our Back Talk with David Cross this week, we went as far as to call him the "contemporary king of alt-humor." And while that remains true today, it turns out that there is yet another flattering title that can be attributed to the sketch genius: comic soothsayer.
When news turned up on Huff Post yesterday that the United States is planning a unilateral intergalactic onslaught, we thought it was a joke being played by diehard Cross fans.
