Where can I find the David Cross interview

where can i hear/watch a copy of the David Cross interview "Comedy Isn't Pretty"? I heard about it from this article about Michael Cera 'Cera said he carries in his bag an interview with David Cross, one of his many comedy mentors and a fellow actor in "Arrested Development." Headlined "Comedy Isn't Pretty," the interview features Cross "talking about how not enough people are willing to look foolish these days," Cera said. "That really had a big message to me. You can't have any shame."'

Waaaah-wuuuuh sound?

There is a sound often played when a character in a comedy does something stupid. I don't know what this is called and am hoping someone can tell me. Here's an example: In an episode of The Simpsons, Homer attempts to expose a plot to move the Isotopes to Alberquerque. He brings the media in to show them the closet full of merchandise that will reveal the conspiracy. When they walk in, they see a man dressed like a beatnik with a trumpet and some kind of cover. He plays the trumpet and it produces a ... waaaaah-wuuuuuh I've always wanted to know the name of that sound. I'd love to find examples online. It is perhaps my favorite sound ever. ;-)

Is there life after 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry'?

In light of the horrendously awful "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," are there any GOOD (i.e. both funny and non-homophobic) comedies about straight people either having to pretend they're gay or, more generally, about straight people slowly but surely letting go of their prejudices towards LGBT people?

So this MeFite walks into a bar

Where do jokes come from? Every day I get a joke via email from a friend. Every once in a while, I hear a great joke at a party or the bar. Where do these things originate? Do most of them start out as a bit from a professional comedian? Are there people who are professional joke writers? Do jokes evolve from anecdotes that had been embellished over the years?

Shut up you f*cking baby

Does anyone know where I can find out what David Cross has been up to and any new projects he has? I can't find any links for a website of his that's up to date. I'm more interested in his stand-up shows and/or comedy albums rather than acting roles (IMDB).

Red Riding Hood backwards?

Is anyone familiar with the comedy routine of Little Red Riding Hood told backwards? A teacher I had in jr. high just died and that was one of his trademark stories. I always thought it was an original, but then I heard it years later and now can't remember who did it. It basically involved telling the story straight but mixing up the sentence structure. At least that's what I recall some 22 years later.
