September Preview: David Cross Disses on Atlanta


Among other things, David Cross—the hirsute comedian and actor without hair on his head, or shame on his sleeve—was born and raised in Atlanta. This is not widely known to fans of Mr. Show, Arrested Development, or, more recently, the biblical-satire film “Year One.” In the upcoming September issue, we interview Cross about his strained (to say the least) relationship with the city of his birth. Here’s an audio preview, from an old stand-up sketch, of the man with the mostly-hilarious hatred of our city. WARNING: this clip contains profanity, atheistic sentiments, and stereotype-affirming claims about Atlanta and Atlantans that are not necessarily the opinion of this author, a proud fifth-generation Atlanta, or this magazine. Still, it’s pretty funny…don’t you think?
