M A Y 4 - DAVID CROSS - It’s Not Funny (CD)

Recorded in January of 2004, during a four-night, eight-show stand in Washington, DC, It’s Not Funny is the follow-up to David’s Grammy Award Losing (to Weird Al’s Poodle Hat!) album, Shut Up, You Fucking Baby! “A truth teller in the noble tradition of Bill Hicks, Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce, Cross aims not just to entertain, but to challenge, provoke, and shake his audience out of its complacent stupor…as urgent and outraged as a Noam Chomsky lecture, but infinitely more entertaining” (The Onion). “Simply put, David Cross is the gentlest, kindest, and most sanitary man I have ever met” (Dave Eggers).
