Cross began performing stand-up comedy when he was 17, and he moved to New York City the day after his high school graduation. He later spent a semester at Boston’s Emerson College, where he joined the sketch comedy group This is Pathetic. David started performing stand-up around Boston, and in the early ’90s, he regularly performed at Catch a Rising Star and formed a sketch comedy group called Cross Comedy. After Cross performed at Un-Cabaret in Los Angeles in 1994, radio performer Joe Frank hired him to appear on his radio shows “The Last Run” and “A Hearing.” David starred in the one-hour HBO comedy special “The Pride Is Back,” in 1999, followed by the tour documentary “Let America Laugh” in 2003. He then released 2010’s “Bigger and Blackerer,” 2016’s “Making America Great Again,” and 2019’s “Oh, Come On.” In 2004, he was ranked #85 on Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time” list.

Personal Life

David became engaged to actress Amber Tamblyn in August 2011, four years after they began their relationship. They married on October 6, 2012, and they welcomed a daughter in February 2017. The couple’s birth announcement read, “David and I are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey Jr.,” but they actually named the baby Marlow Alice. Though Cross was raised Jewish, he has described himself as an atheist, and politically, he is “definitely more socialist Democrat than centrist politician.”
