David Cross
David Cross
After taking his 2016, "Making America Great Again" tour through the hellscapes of America, masochist and glutton for punishment, David Cross is itching to get back out there again. "I feel like I haven't been yelled at enough by conservative christians. I want to get it right this time". So David will be working on new(ish) material for his next show. But since he is incapable of crafting jokes and does most of his writing onstage, this is where YOU come in. Come join him (me) at The Bell House in Brooklyn for some informal banter and jolly japes. And together let's see which shit sticks!
