But if Amber Tamblyn’s poetry doesn’t speak to you, maybe the stand-up comedy of her husband, David Cross, is more your speed. The 52-year-old comedian, actor and writer is more than just a trophy husband; he was involved in several critically successful television shows in the late ’90s and early 2000s, like Arrested Development and Mr. Show, both of which have been given encore seasons on Netflix. This is Cross’ first tour since the two married in 2012, but don’t expect hacky marriage material. As a writer on par with his wife, Cross’ comedy delves into biting cultural criticism, often taking jabs at consumerism, politics and sexism, as evidenced by the name of this comeback tour: “Making America Great Again.”
