Some people probably hate David Cross for his political views and no-holds-barred criticisms of George W. Those people, of course, are idiots.
Cross, along with Lewis Black, is one of the greatest political comics working today. And even if you don't agree with his views, his writing is so good and his timing so dead on, he'll still have you laughing your ass off.
You can't really mention Cross without mentioning Mr. Show, the groundbreaking show he created with Bob Odenkirk that is the closest thing to Python in 30 years.
The two CDs he has released, "Shut up You Fucking Baby" and "It's Not Funny" are both so topical that it will be interesting to see how they stand the test of time. I personally think they'll do very well and rank right up there with Bill Hicks, who was also very topical.
