David Cross 11-17-2000 @ The EARL
How the hell did he dot the 'i'? Or not write in cursive, for that matter?
Damn, I love stumbling onto finds like this. Here we have a set by one of my favorite comedians, David Cross, at The EARL here in Atlanta. Um... yes, please!
David Cross is a native of the Atlanta area, and he makes frequent reference to this fact during the show. His stories about how he was treated living in Roswell are hilarious, as is just about every part of this set. He rips on protest singers, idiotic crowd members, the South, and religion with sharp ferocity. Not for the easily offended, but I laughed my ass off listening throughout his act. This is an audience recording, but it sounds just fine. I can't believe this took place at The EARL. Wow.
