Many know him as the kooky never-nude Tobias Funke from the cult classic show Arrested Development, or as the titular character in the black comedy The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, but David Cross cultivated his humor as a young stand-up in New York in the 80s before establishing himself as a TV star. The comedian steps back into the spotlight with his 'The End Of The Beginning Of The End' tour, kicking off this fall!

David Sedaris at Lexington Opera House
