He began honing his own comedy act while hanging out at both the Comedy Store and the Ice House. As his audience grew, Gallagher became most noted for wielding his trademark Sledge-O-Matic. He showered his audience with the pulverized remains of apples, oranges, lettuce, cottage cheese, and pound cakes. Show goers turn up already “Gallagherized:” wearing plastic raincoats, goggles, sunglasses, and refer to the front of the theatre as “Death Row.” Being one of the most thoroughly calculating performers in the world of entertainment, he writes all of his own material, runs his own operation, and does over 100 concerts a year, selling out the majority of them.
A Gallagher concert is an unforgettable experience. He is a keen and original observer of human nature and the American scene. “My humor makes people think,” Gallagher says. “I want people to look more closely at this country and their lives to see the humor and absurdity in it all …I don’t have to make it up, the truth is funny enough.”
All ages welcome
