‘Bigger And Blackerer’ was filmed during two back-to-back
shows on the same evening at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre.
· From its foundation as a Puritan colony in 1630, to the ban on William S. Burroughs’ groundbreaking ‘The Naked Lunch’ during the free-wheeling 60s, Boston has a long, proud tradition of suppressing freedom of expression. Yet it has also nurtured some of America’s most provocative individuals - Donna Summer, Pixies, Edgar Allen Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Guess which side of that cultural divide David Cross falls on?
· During his illustrious career, David Cross has played recurring roles on the TV programmes ‘Arrested Development’ and ‘The Colbert Report’, won an Emmy Award for his contributions to ‘The Ben Stiller Show’, starred in such films as ‘Waiting For Guffman’, ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’, the Bob Dylan fantasy ‘I’m Not There’ (in which he portrayed Allen Ginsberg), and ‘Kung Fu Panda’. As a teenager, Cross was a state champion swimmer. He has also won numerous design awards for his hand-drawn typefaces, including the popular fonts Alabama Bitch Slap and Emaciated Geisha. He is currently living in exile in the UK, working on the show ‘The
Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret’.
· ‘Bigger And Blackerer’ is David Cross’s third release on Sub Pop Records, preceded by the CD albums ‘It’s Not Funny’ and ‘Shut Up, You F**king Baby!’, and the 2003 DVD tour documentary ‘Let America Laugh’. The first album was actually nominated for a Grammy Award, and Cross was also the first comedian signed to Sub Pop, paving the way for Eugene Mirman, Patton Oswalt, Flight Of The Conchords and dozens of other hopeful comics in flannel shirts and ripped jeans. In that respect at least, David Cross should be regarded as a pillar of his community - wherever he may be.
