Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, DAVID CROSS (Crane) made his way to Boston to study film at Emerson College, but quickly dropped out and started doing standup full time. He moved to Los Angeles to write on "The Ben Stiller Show,” where he shared the posthumous Emmy (it was given after the show was canceled) with the show's other writers.

Continuing in the sketch tradition, he created (along with Bob Odenkirk) the groundbreaking show for HBO, "Mr. Show with Bob & David.” The show ran for four years and garnered several Emmy nominations. He has also released two comedy CDs on the Subpop label, "Shut Up You F---ing Baby” and "It's Not Funny.” "Shut Up….” was nominated for a Grammy Award. Both continue to sell exceptionally well and have garnered rave reviews. In 2010, David released the comedy special, "Bigger and Blackerer,” along with a companion CD of the same name. Additionally, David's first book, I Drink For a Reason, was published in August 2009.

David has appeared in such films as "Men in Black” (both 1 & 2), "Waiting for Guffman,” "Scary Movie 2,” "Ghost World,” "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” "Curious George,” "The Year One” and DreamWorks films "Megamind” and "Kung Fu Panda.” David was also featured in Todd Haynes' rumination on the life of Bob Dylan, "I'm Not There.” He recently wrapped filming on Fox's "Alvin & The Chipmunks 3” and appeared in the first "Alvin,” as well as its sequel.

On the television side, David appeared in the Emmy Award-winning Fox Network comedy, "Arrested Development,” as Tobias Fünke, and recently completed an episodic arc on the Fox series, "Running Wilde.” David produced and starred in the Comedy Central animated series "Freak Show,” which was co-created by David and Jon Benjamin. He also had a major recurring arc on Fox's "Running Wilde.” Currently, David is working on the second season of "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,” which he created and stars in for IFC and Channel 4 in the UK.
