I’ve written about my friend David Yazbek and his monthly gig at the downtown 92Y. Now it’s time to write about a show at the uptown version. Comedian/Actor/Writer David Cross will be in conversation with his Arrested Development co-star Michael Cera on Wednesday, March 20th.
Cross (above) got his start as a writer on the quickly defunct, but beloved The Ben Stiller Show that won an Emmy after it was canceled. He is probably best known as Portia de Rossi’s bumbling husband Tobias on the groundbreaking comedy Arrested Development, which has a second life. New episodes of the series are set for Netflix this summer in advance of a movie. The wild, woolly show, though low-rated in its original run, was a hit with critics and had a certain devoted audience. Rightly so. The show was outrageous and brilliant. And I cannot wait to see it back. On whatever platform it airs.
Cross also appeared in some of the best movies of the past 15 years: Ghost World (with a now barely recognizable Scarlett Johansson), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and comedy classic Waiting for Guffman. Since Cera is moderating the affair, I expect Arrested Development to be a hot topic, and who doesn’t want to learn more about what’s going to happen to Tobias and the Bluth clan?
Just another reason to love the Big Apple, and the creativity the city champions.
