Mr. One-Man Show

David Cross is funny as hell. So why isn't he laughing?

To his cult, David Cross is the funniest man in the world. But the cult doesn't offer distribution deals; the cult doesn't allow Cross to write and direct and star in movies of his own making. And the cult does not pay for food.

David Cross:In a perfect world, I'd be doing what Ben Stiller does, I guess. I'd be doing what Woody Allen does. I'd be doing what Albert Brooks does. I don't have millions of dollars in a distribution deal, and no one's willing to gamble on me. Not yet. That goes back to why I take all that kind of shitty work and why I keep doing this stuff--because if I don't, I don't work and I don't eat.
