From the bowels of the dirty, sometimes horribly inept but always clever now cancelled HBO skit show, ‘Mr. Show with Bob and David’, comes a two disc standup record, minus Bob. Yeah, it’s David Cross. You may remember him from other memorable film moments like the coroner in ‘Men In Black’, as Dwight in ‘Scary Movie 2’ or the fake Pootie in ‘Pootie Tang’. He also is the star in ‘Run Ronnie Run!’, a great film (saw a bootleg) based off a sketch from the HBO show, and may never see the light of day due to haggles with distribution.
So, he’s been in some movies. David’s also a comedian whose specialty tends to hover around popular blacker comedy like religion, drugs and homosexuality. And it’s fucking funny. Is it worth buying? That’s hard to say. Comedy albums suck due to their limited repeat factor. Buy a music CD that becomes your favorite and you very well may spin that disc over a thousand times; how many times can you listen to the same jokes? Luckily, this is a full two disc set which makes this a two hour job, and it’s fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the above mentioned subjects. Do some research, check out Cross’s stuff, and then go buy this album.
