Taped during 2 shows at Boston's Wilbur Theater, Bigger and Blackerer is David Cross third album, preceded by It's Not Funny (2004) and Shut Up You F***ing Baby! (2002). The latter was actually nominated for a Grammy Award, although the voters ultimately decided it was not the Best Spoken Word Album for Children after all. Cross was also the first comedian signed to Sub Pop Records, paving the way for Eugene Mirman, Flight of the Conchords, and dozens of other hopeful comics in flannel shirts and ripped jeans. In that respect at least, David Cross should be regarded as a pillar of his community wherever he may be. During his illustrious career, David Cross has played recurring roles on the TV programs Arrested Development and the Colbert Report, and won an Emmy Award for his contributions to the Ben Stiller Show. He has also starred in such films as Waiting for Guffman, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the Bob Dylan fantasy I m Not There (in which he portrayed Allen Ginsberg), and Kung Fu Panda. As a teenager, Cross was a state champion swimmer. He has also won numerous design awards for his hand drawn typefaces, including the popular fonts Alabama Bitch Slap and Emaciated Geisha. He is currently living in exile in the UK, working on the show the Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret (broadcast on IFC in the USA).
