Actor and comedian David Cross will embark on his first stand-up tour in six years, starting later this month.

The comedian announced the tour in an appearance on The Daily Show this past Monday, and has posted a full list of tour dates on his Facebook page.

In a statement attached to the performance information, Cross expressed his excitement to be hitting the road again.

“I was very busy writing for The View, but now that the kids are off to college, my wife’s regiment has been transferred to McMurdo Station in the South Pole, and I’m near completion on Fallout 4,” Cross wrote, “It’s time to start up the bus and bring my patented, fart-inducing laugh winces to a town near you.”

The tour will begin January 26 in San Diego, and go virtually nonstop for three more months, zig-zagging across the United States before ending in Oklahoma City on April 24.

For fans of Cross, the string of performances will likely appear as simply a continuation of his fervent work in recent years, with the comedian appearing on a new season of Arrested Development, as well as his own Netflix original series with Bob Odenkirk called W/ Bob and David, along with a myriad of cameos in various comedy TV and film series.

A return to the stage may have been slightly unexpected given Cross’s current work schedule, but doing stand up comedy is a central aspect of his professional history. Known for his intelligent-yet-goofy stage style, Cross began his career doing stand up at the age of 17, and has continued to return to the stage throughout his now long career.

Now 51, the funnyman’s considerable stand-up experience makes his live show one to seek out if he will be coming to a stage near you.

Tickets are currently available on Cross’s website.

American Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8

Accidental taxiway landings by aircraft at busy airports are rare, but they nevertheless present a serious threat to passenger safety. At the current time, these so called “wrong-surface landings” are among the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) top five five safety hazards in the national airspace system.

With planes using taxiways prior to takeoff, the consequences of such an erroneous landing are potentially catastrophic. And a number of near-misses have indeed occurred in the U.S. over the years.

Jeep will launch four electric SUVs for North America and Europe by the end of 2025, with at least two coming to the U.S., the automaker confirmed Thursday. While Jeep has some plug-in hybrids in its lineup, these will be the brand's first all-electric models.

The first of these models to launch will be the Jeep Recon, which is scheduled to start production in 2024, with reservations opening in early 2023. While it won't be fully revealed until next year, Jeep confirmed the Recon will have a "one-touch power top, removable doors, and glass," similar to the current Jeep Wrangler. While it doesn't replace the Wrangler, it's definitely inspired by the iconic off-roader, Jim Morrison, head of the Jeep brand in North America, said during a presentation of the electrification plan.
