David Cross is hitting the road later this month for his first stand-up comedy show in six years. The comedian, known for his roles in Mr. Show, Arrested Development and W/ Bob and David, announced his triumphant return to the stage during his appearance on the Daily Show last night. The nationwide tour—which carries the curiously-familiar name "Making America Great Again!"—will kick off on January 26 in San Diego, followed by Claremont and San Francisco before heading to The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on January 29. After that, he'll head further up the West coast, and then bring the show across the country until the end of April. Tickets are already on sale for many of the dates and will be available soon for the rest.

On his Facebook page, Cross shared the news in this heartwarming message:

Okay, enough's enough. No more dicking around! Let's do this you guys! I am extremely excited to get back out on the road after six long years away. 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, it's time to start up the bus and bring my patented, fart-inducing laugh winces to a town near you. See you soon!

Fans of Cross' role on IFC's The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret will also be happy to hear that the show is returning for another season, after the second season ended in 2012.
