Mr. Show, Arrested Development, the stand-up stage, The Year One Super Bowl commercial from last night...you know who David Cross is by now. Currently he's filming a new series with Will Arnett for Britain's Channel 4, and come this summer you'll be able to soak up his wisdom in the written word when his book "I Drink For A Reason" hits shelves. Recently he told us about the Arrested Development movie, an upcoming Squeakel, and what he thinks of a law banning fans from talking to him. Tomorrow night he'll return to the stage, joining Zach Galifianakis, Janeane Garofalo, Demetri Martin, John Oliver and Paul F. Tompkins for “Stand-Ups Give BAC,” a benefit for the Brooklyn Autism Center.

How did you spend Inauguration day/night? I was up at my house in the woods. No tv so my girlfriend and I drove down into town and watched it at a bar.

Do you know about David's Law? I did know about David's Law. A friend who works at the U.N. pointed it out to me. I didn't know it had passed. I thought it was still in the docket at The Hague. I will state here for the record that Lindsay is welcome to break that law whenever she pleases. I think I met her once at a "Tinkle" show (I think) and that she was lovely.

Do you have any stories about fans that you wish knew about David's Law? I have literally hundreds of stories but they are all so similar and only mildly irritating that they're not really worth repeating. Mostly garden variety rude, in-your-space, yelling "Why do I know you" type stuff.

Do NYC transplants who grew up around rednecks treat you (more) like a savior? Yes! It's an instant conversation starter and for some reason I really get into the minutia of it (their experiences in conjunction with mine) and I wind up boring them I think.

Did it ever start being annoying that the rest of the world at some point decided to start wearing black framed glasses? Well, come on. Black framed glasses have been around forever. I was annoyed when Run D.M.C. started wearing them. They stole that from me.

What do you make of Michael Cera wanting to shred any Arrested Development script that comes his way, per an interview he did at Sundance? I think Michael was joking and he has his reasons for whatever he ultimately wants to do in the way of the film and I respect whatever decision he makes. People are treating him WAY too harshly about all of this.

Did the Blue Man Group ever contact you about your portrayal of their artistry? The Blue Man Group was in a couple of AD scenes. They were honored to have an opportunity to make the money.

Is IMDB correct when it lists the Alvin and the Chipmunks Squeakel as an upcoming project? Unfortunately I am contractually obligated to do the Alvin movie. There is nothing however in my contract that says I can't show up to work stinking drunk everyday though, so I'll have the last laugh. I truly wasn't looking forward to shooting it until I heard they were calling it, "a Squeakel" then I was like, "Yeah motherfuckers!! I love puns!!!!"

Please share your strangest "only in New York" story. I went to the Statue of Liberty.

Which New Yorker do you most admire? The guy who took a dump against the wall in the 2nd Ave F train station last night.

Given the opportunity, how would you change New York? Five less hot dogs, five more noodle shops.

Under what circumstance have you thought about leaving New York? None yet. Although the tax situation here is outta fucking hand. In taxes I pay just to live and work here, I could buy a small house in Seattle.

What's your current soundtrack? "Now That's What I Call Music 187!!"

Best cheap eat in the city. The one dollar samosa (with hot sauce) at the Pak Punjabi cab stand on 1st st.

Best venue to see music in the city. Hmmm, Bowery Ballroom? Actually since they re-did the sound system at Webster Hall, that place has really amazing sound. But I like "Soundfix" too. Also "The King Pin" in Staten Island is pretty good too. It's a secret though.
