Emmy Award winner and Grammy Award nominee David Cross is an inventive performer, writer, and producer on stage and screens both big and small.

Named one of the Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All Time by Comedy Central, Cross last toured the world with “Make America Great Again!,” which took him across the United States, Canada, and Europe. The tour spawned a Netflix special which premiered in August 2016, and a Grammy-nominated CD of the same name. The set, which discussed then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump, gun control laws, and religion, was the comedian’s first standup tour in nearly six years. He had last toured in 2009 with a solo stand-up show in support of his New York Times Bestseller, I Drink for a Reason. That hugely successful comedy show was filmed at Boston's Wilbur Theater for a special, entitled “Bigger and Blackerer,” which premiered on EPIX in April 2010 before being released on CD and DVD by Sub Pop. His previous comedy special, "David Cross: The Pride is Back," aired on HBO in 1999, and was named one of the 25 best stand-up comedy specials and concert films of all time by ROLLING STONE in July 2015.

Cross has released two other comedy albums – the Grammy Award- nominated, “Shut Up You Fucking Baby” and “It's Not Funny.” In 2003 he released the DVD, "Let America Laugh," a documentary film of his groundbreaking stand up tour of alternative, indie rock clubs.

He recently wrapped production on “Bliss,” a new comedy for Sky in the UK. Serving as writer and director, Cross’s “Bliss” stars Stephen Mangan as a man who must find a way to balance his two separate families.

Cross is currently in production on the Pentagon Papers film “The Papers,” helmed by Stephen Spielberg and co-starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.

Last year, IFC premiered the long-awaited third season of the comedy “Todd Margaret,” created by and starring Cross as an ill-equipped American who finds himself running the London sales office of the energy drink company for which he works. IFC aired six episodes over the span of two weeks. The original iteration, “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,” aired on IFC from 2010 to 2012.

Cross reteamed with his “Mr. Show” collaborator and co-creator, Bob Odenkirk, to create “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” a four-episode revamp of the iconic sketch comedy series, which premiered November 2015 on Netflix.

In September 2013, David Cross and Bob Odenkirk released the book, Hollywood Said No! Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show. Written with friend and fellow “Mr. Show” alum Brian Posehn, “Hollywood Said No!” is a collection of never-before-seen scripts, orphaned sketch ideas and reminiscences. In support of the book, Cross and Odenkirk embarked on a multi-city tour, performing their first official stand-up comedy shows together since their sold-out national tour in 2002.

In 2014, Cross released the indie film Hits, which he wrote and directed. A black comedy about the nature of fame in the YouTube era, the film is set in a small town in upstate New York and stars Matt Walsh and Meredith Hagner. It first premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and then helped raise funds for its theatrical distribution via a successful Kickstarter campaign. In addition to a traditional theatrical release, the film was also available to fans across the nation on BitTorrent, where they were able to pay what they wanted to view it.

On the big screen, Cross has appeared in the independent features, Kill Your Darlings alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Michael C. Hall, and the dramedy It's a Disaster, opposite Julia Stiles and America Ferrera. Other film credits include 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, Pitch Perfect 2, I’m Not There, and provided his vocal talents for several animated films, including Megamind, the Kung Fu Panda series and Curious George.

On television, Cross reprised his beloved role as Dr. Tobias Fünke' on the fourth season of “Arrested Development” on Netflix, which will begin filming its long-awaited fifth season this summer. During its original critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning run on FOX, Cross was twice-nominated as part of the ensemble cast for a Screen Actors Guild Award. He will next be seen in the third season of Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” reprising his guest arc as lawyer Russ Snyder.

Cross’s introduction to the TV scene came with "The Ben Stiller Show," where Cross honed his comedy writing skills and 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.” He also wrote, produced and starred in the Comedy Central animated series "Freak Show," which he co-created with H. Jon Benjamin.

Cross currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.

Writer, actor, and standup comedian Joe DeRosa has become a favorite on the comedy circuit. His brand of comedy, which mixes brutal honesty and frustration at the workings of the world, has won over comedy fans, radio listeners, and TV audiences nationwide.

In 2009 and 2013 DeRosa taped two half hour specials for Comedy Central. Since 2010 he has released five comedy albums. His first two standup albums, The Depression Auction and Return of The Son of The Depression Auction, were released on Comedy Central records in 2010 and 2011, respectively. A third and fourth album, You Will Die and Mistakes Were Made: The B-Sides were released in 2013 and 2014. In 2016, Joe taped his first one hour special, which he also directed, again for Comedy Central, entitled You Let Me Down. The special and album debuted in February of 2017.

Joe has also worked as a writer on a variety of notable projects, including Netflix’s highly acclaimed Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Comedy Central’s Jeff & Some Aliens, and TBS’ cult hit The Pete Holmes Show, on which he was also a featured performer. Online, Joe created, wrote, directed and starred in Bedrocket’s 2013 web series We Should Break Up and the Warner Brothers web series What Are We Waiting For? In 2011 he directed and, along with fellow comedians Bill Burr and Robert Kelly, co-wrote and starred in the short film CHEAT, which premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival that year. In October 2012, Simon and Schuster released a book based on the film, written by the three comedians themselves.

In recent years, Joe has acted quite a bit, being seen as recurring crooked veterinarian Dr. Caldera on AMC’s Better Call Saul. He also has made appearances on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, FX’s Louie, HBO’s Bored To Death, E’s Chelsea Lately, and in the video game Grand Theft Auto V.

When he’s not writing or acting, Joe headlines comedy clubs across the globe and has been featured at renowned festivals such as South By Southwest, Montreal’s Just for Laughs, Toronto’s JFL 42, The Moontower Comedy Festival, The New York Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe, The Galway and Dublin Vodaphone Festivals, Gilda’s Laughfest, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Festival, and Bonnaroo.
