Quotes

David Cross: It is, that's something that, uh, a lot of people ask, you know? why, is god, uh, allowing so many of our innocent kids to be shot to death and... I have a possible answer... and you're not going to like it. But maybe, maybe, maybe god is allowing so many of our kids to be shot to death, SO, that they can go to heaven, where they then, service the ISIS terrorists and suicide bombers as part of the 72 virgins they're rewarded with.

It's still good ol' David "Chim chim chureeee!" Cross, folks!
7 September 2016 | by kiriucorpsSee all my reviews

While many of the things said by reviewer Caio are correct, i.e. Cross kind of drags and engagement is not always there, I disagree strongly with the idea Cross has a "rusty edge". Still there are, again as mentioned by Caio, the bait-and-switch jokes that really lead to gut laughs, the Cross-ish mannerisms, and above all, the wit. Yes, there are times in this where he becomes more preachy than in previous works; this is probably where most people will lose him and go do other things. Being of (mostly) the same worldview as Cross and having cut my teeth watching Mr. Show late night in the mid 90s when I had school the next morning, I hung around and was glad I did. Cross really is talented in elocution, and very whimsical in leading you in to a twisted joke in this special. If you can stay to the end, he always makes the punchline worth it. I was also impressed by one of his analogies and for pointing out some things I didn't think of (even in being highly political, myself). Speaking of which, one downside of his political rant was the exclusion of the Democratic party and establishment for their collusion in many of the things I felt he correctly pegged the "other side" of doing. I'll stop there as to not make this about my political beliefs, but will say that I hope he comes around on that. Anyhow, if this is what David Cross is like after an ostensible hiatus from stand-up, I must say I have high hopes for his future specials!
