Comedian David Cross To Perform At State Theatre June 16

Comedian and “Arrested Development” star David Cross will bring his “Worst Daddy in the World” stand-up comedy show to Happy Valley at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 16, in the State Theatre.

The show will offer reserved seating for $52 and a VIP meet-and-greet option for $152. Two dollars from each ticket sale will go toward The Innocence Project, which works to eliminate inequitable justice systems and end wrongful convictions across the country.

Cross is perhaps best known for his role as Tobias Fünke on “Arrested Development.” He has also received Grammy nominations for his comedy albums “America…Great…,” and “Shut Up, You Fucking Baby!” He also contributed to “The Ben Stiller Show,” where he won an Emmy for his contributions as a screenwriter.

“Worst Daddy in the World,” like many other comedy shows, is being marketed as a phone-free experience. Any attendees seen using a cell phone or recording show material will be asked to leave the venue.

Cross announced his State College show along with 12 other new tour dates this week. His tour began in December and is expected to run into late June.

Those interested may purchase tickets on the State Theatre website. General availability opens at noon on March 17.
