Today's subject is David Cross. David Cross has made audiences laugh their asses of on stage with his brilliant and vicious style of stand-up, on television in his incredibly funny work on "Arrested Development" as never nude analrapist Tobias Funke and as one-half of the team that gave us the hilarious HBO sketch comedy show "Mr. Show with Bob and David," on CD with is Grammy nominated Shut Up You Fucking Baby! and on the big screen. Now, David brings his brand of humor to the written form with his first book, I Drink for a Reason.

In the cleverly crafted book, which David will be signing tonight at Book Soup at 9:30, the comedian/actor tackles everything from religion to breaking up to scrapbooking to Jim Belushi. The book also includes three pages devoted to a review of a Cross gig found on our sister site, SFist.

David, who will also be performing at the Wiltern on Monday took some time to talk to LAist about the book, his writing process, the tour, Glenn Beck and his time living in a UCLA frat house. Of course, we also had to ask him about SFist.
