David Cross: (on Freak Show) It's a cartoon that's gonna be on Comedy Central, it's about a bunch of freaks who work in this sort of mom and pop low budget traveling carnival, and they moonlight for the US government doing these menial tasks. They're not menial to them, but they're always stupid little things and they always f--- up and get in trouble.
David Cross: (on Arrested Development) I know from my own experience doing that kind of thing that it gets very deflating and demoralizing after a while, and after a while it gets easier to say, you know, I love the show, I think it's great, but I'm done. At this point it's really up to Mitch to say yes or no to Showtime, pending on them agreeing to the deal that he wants.
David Cross: (on Arrested Development) As far as I know, and I believe this is true, Showtime made an offer to pick up the show for two abbreviated seasons pending on a deal, uh, that a deal could be worked out with Mitch Hurwitz, who is, quite understandably, in doubt. It's a very, very time consuming and exhaustive process, and that, combined with he's got two little girls that he never gets to see.
David Cross: (on his CD "It's Not Funny") You know, it depends. I can look at some of the jokes and say, 'Oh, that 's a funny joke,' and some of it is just boring and makes me cringe listening to it for the thousandth time. Not that I 'm embarrassed or ashamed to listen to any of it. I just can't, you know? I'm glad it 's out there and I'm glad I did it. It's a record of what I was doing at that time. I'm glad it 's there for posterity.
David Cross: I eventually want to direct movies, and continue to act, and continue to do my stand-up. They're not all mutually exclusive – one doesn't negate the other one or disqualify you from doing other stuff. I mean, you can do all that s***. But eventually, I'd like to direct.
David Cross: (on his Arrested Development character, Tobias Funke) He is a kind of misguided, not misguided, but just somewhat pretentious, slightly fey husband to this woman and they have this really strange relationship. There's very little sex involved. He was a psychotherapist and lost his license, and then he discovers he wants to be an actor. And nobody really tolerates his stuff.
David Cross: (on how his success has changed his stand-up acts) As far as my act is concerned, it hasn't changed my attitude or what subjects I talk about, but it has changed the way I approach my act, in that I don't have the luxury of being unknown, and therefore "surprising". I used to go on stage in "character" and try to get the audience believing that I was gay, or nervous, or retarded, or whatever and make the place get uncomfortable before continuing. I can't do that anymore which kinda sucks, but it's a nice trade-off to have people come to see me specifically.
David Cross: (on his success) Success has made me completely disregard my financial situation, something that had never happened until about seven years ago. It's absolutely the coolest thing to not have to think about that anymore.
David Cross: (on how he started Mr. Show with Bob and David) There's this really cool alternative comedy scene in LA that Bob Odenkirk and I were kind of a part of. We would do these sketch shows, everybody would do different kinds of skits, and Bob and I knew each other from that. He had a Tuesday night show, and suggested we write a few sketches together. We later did some other stuff, and found that we really worked well together. We both had very different and ideas. One day we just decided to do our own show.
