Career Moves

Glenn Beck, Comedian

Glenn Beck, possessor of the most lugubriously expressive face on the Fox News Channel, has finally wised up to his reputation and announced a stand-up comedy tour for the first week of June. The radio and TV personality calls his act the "poor man's Seinfeld." Among his schticks will be a "modern-day reimagining of Thomas Paine's 1776 pamphlet 'Common Sense.'" Beck says his success on Fox has surprised even him, but is happy to return to a live audience, even if for only six days in the summer.
