Comedian David Cross Coming to the Agora in July

Named one of the Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All Time by Comedy Central, comedian/actor/writer David Cross began performing stand-up comedy when he was only 17.

By the 1990s, he emerged as a comedian to be reckoned with and took his talents to the country's indie rock clubs.

Now, Cross has just announced the dates of a new tour, dubbed the Oh Come On Tour. It includes a July 29 stop at the Agora.

"I am beyond aroused to get back out on the road and bring my very special, artisanal small batch hand crafted, 100 percent organic jokes and jibberings to a venue near you,” states Cross in a press release. “These jokes are kid-tested and mother approved so bring the whole family!”

The David Cross: Oh Come On tour represents Cross' first full tour since 2016's Making America Great Again tour, which included a stop locally at the Masonic Auditorium and yielded the Netflix special of the same name and the Grammy-nominated CD, …America…Great.
