Glenn Beck

You have three chances to see political pundit/social commentator Glenn Beck this week. There's his live appearance at Verizon Wireless Theater, and then there are two broadcasts (one live, one encore) of his Kansas City performance. Beck calls this The Common Sense Tour, so you can expect that most of his time onstage will be spent pointing out the absurdity of our current political situation (yeah, 20 percent unemployment is going to make a great punch line, Glenn). 7:30 p.m. 520 Texas. For information, call 713-230-1600 or visit www.livenation.com. Broadcasts are at 7 p.m. on June 4 and 11. Various theaters including Houston Marq*E Stadium 22 IMAX, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, visit www.ncm.com/fathom. $20.
