David Cross grew up in Atlanta, but at the completion of High school he moved to Boston, where he briefly studied at Emerson College before dropping out to pursue a full-time stand-up comedy career. He got his big break as a writer for The Ben Stiller Show. This is where he met Bob Odenkirk, with whom he created and starred in the HBO sketch comedy series Mr. Show With Bob and David.
David has also appeared in several movies including Men in Black, Scary Movie 2, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
He is probably best known for his role as Tobias Fünke in the hilarious sitcom Arrested Development.
Since the shows cancellation after its third season, David has created his own animated comedy entitled Freak Show which is currently in its first season.
