Intelligent and unapologetic critical thinker
17 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

David Cross's long-awaited first stand-up special, done shortly after Mr. Show had finished its run and 3 years before his first comedy album. The set features observations about pop culture and social attitudes. Cross, who does not suffer fools gladly, takes aim at certain attitudes or personalities and unapologetically has at them. Of course, being that this was just before the Bush administration became a staple for him, his harshest criticism is saved for religion. Cross gleefully prods the church throughout his set, joking about being raped by the Virgin Mary or teasing Jesus Christ. The choice of material will most certainly put some off, but Cross has never been about appealing to everyone. Those that like him, however, like him a lot.
