Glenn Beck announces comedy tour


Glenn Beck, Fox News Channel’s latest sensation, is taking a comedy show on the road for six live performances over six days during the first week of June, reports The AP. Beck calls his act a “poor man’s Seinfeld” and intends to mix topical humor with his modern-day reimagining of Thomas Paine’s 1776 pamphlet “Common Sense.” Beck will start 6/1 in Denver, then perform in theaters in Phoenix, San Diego, Kansas City, Houston and Richmond over the next five days.

The Kansas City show on 6/4 will air as a live simulcast in select theaters across the country and as a recorded broadcast in theaters a week later, a spokesman for Beck told the AP.

The live shows give him the chance to see firsthand what sort of themes are resonating among his regular followers, Beck said.
