We kid, we kid. Beck’s un-electability, however, is the premise behind his live comedy show, which makes a stop Friday at the Civic Center Music Hall (a performing arts venue built and maintained with public funds).

Unelectable is sure to incite the choir.

Sounds irresistible! The Beck brand peddles all mediums: web, social media, radio, video, GBTV, The Blaze magazine, books, and even a clothing line. On his website, you can find Beck-approved services; he recommends you buy gold from Goldline, urges you to protect your identity with LifeLock, and suggests you start a free trial with Carbonite to ensure your computer files are secure. But he’s no fear-monger.

fans will be delighted that Friday’s visit is the first of two
productions in the region this summer. He chose Dallas for “Restoring
Love,” a one-time “evening of inspiration and entertainment” in late

In his promo
video, Beck coos for five minutes about the event, which he said,

be shed at the faux-unity lovefest?
