Gallagher’s trademark Sledge-O-Matic helped vault the comedian to a place of adoration among fans who risk going home with melon pulp or lumps of cottage cheese in their hair just to see his act.
More than flying bits of food, Gallagher’s show incorporates intelligent social and political commentary as only he can deliver. Add to this a plethora of oddball props and you have the ingredients of one of the most calculating performers in the entertainment world. More than any other comic, Gallagher is best known for his 16 audacious cable specials with titles like “Uncensored Evening,” Too Real,” “Mad As Hell,” “Totally New,” “That’s Stupid,” “Stuck in the 60’s,” “The Maddest,” “The Bookkeeper,” “Over Your Head,” “Overboard,” “The Leap Year Marathon,” “Melon Crazy,” “The Messiest Of,” “We Need a Hero,” “Smashing Cheeseheads,” and “Sledge-O-Matic.com.” and Gallagher’s latest CD, “Looking for Intelligent Life”.
The food will hit the fans, who often show up wearing raincoats, goggles, sunglasses and carrying umbrellas. The brave and lucky score seats in the “Sledge Zone” or “Death Row.” Fans always get more than their money’s worth, Gallagher gives 110% before and during every Sledge-O-Matic show, posing for pictures and signing autographs. Flash photography is allowed and encouraged.
A Gallagher concert is an unforgettable experience. He’s 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.”
