The 25 Most Controversial Comedians of All Time

17. David Cross

David Cross received significant positive attention for his hilarious portrayal of Tobias Fünke on the beloved Arrested Development. It was a big change from the criticism he’s received for his stand-up. The comic has no problem with working rough chuckles out of subjects like misogyny and religion—specifically the Catholic church; he made headlines a few years ago after claiming to have done coke at the White House during the Correspondents' Dinner in 2009.

During an appearance on Conan early last year, Cross bashed the film he was there to promote, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, calling it one of the worst experiences of his life before telling everyone that they shouldn’t see it. Preach.
