Glenn Beck is going to do stand up
NEW YORK (AP) -- Fox News Channel's latest sensation is taking a comedy act on the road.
Glenn Beck says he will do a live comedy show over six nights, starting June 1 in Denver.
He calls himself a "poor man's Seinfeld." Beck will mix stand-up comedy with observations from a modern-day reimagining of Thomas Paine's 1776 pamphlet "Common Sense."
Oh he's going to read a pamphlet he doesn't understand. Man I bet this will be just a laugh riot.
Since joining Fox's schedule in January, Beck has nearly doubled the ratings for his late-afternoon time slot.
4 people watch Fox now instead of 2 as before.
He's been criticized for over-the-top knocks on President Barack Obama and been a frequent lampoon target of Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert.
