Comedian David Cross will probably cross the line at Royal Oak Music Theatre

It's not unusual for comedians to pander for laughs by taking on touchy subjects like gun control, religion, or the many incompetencies of our current president. But few comedians completely disregard the moral measuring stick of "too far?" or "too soon?" quite as poetically as David Cross.

Cross, who is best known for his stint as the dimwitted and unknowingly gay Tobias Funke on Arrested Development, and for his '90s sketch program, Mr. Show alongside Bob Odenkirk, will embark on his "Oh, Come On" tour this summer. The tour, which kicks off in Boston on May 27 and concludes in Omaha, Nebraska in August, will bring Cross' unyielding comedic prowess to the Royal Oak Music Theatre on Sunday, July 15.

“I am beyond aroused to get back out on the road and bring my very special, artisanal small batch handcrafted, 100% organic jokes and jibberings to a venue near you,” Cross says of the tour. “These jokes are kid-tested and mother approved so bring the whole family!”

Absolutely do not bring the whole family.
