Gallagher wants to talk to you about style. It might seem like an odd topic coming from this man who wails on watermelons with his Sledge-O-Matic, but that’s just what you get in this hour-long stand-up piece from 1983.For comedy’s prop master extraordinaire, style isn’t so much about finesse, as it is about flair.
In his 1985 special, Gallagher talks how we unwisely spend our hard-earned cash. And of course he isn’t really the bookkeeper, but he does know the three things that appeal to everyone: Money, Money, and Money. But forget all that… here comes the amazing Sledge-o-Matic!
Wacky, prop-laden comedian Gallagher begins this concert video by rollerskating onto the stage, waxing philosophically about shoes and then jokes about coming of age in the sixties, an experience obviously shared by the comedian’s exuberant audience. And bringing up the rear is the one, the only, Sledge-o-Matic routine.
Watch as Gallagher performs his ever-famous zany antics in front of a live audience. Complete with a magical blimp ride over the rainbow, Gallagher takes you on an intelligent and wacky journey. Take a trip to the insane with Gallagher in a sea of laughter and Sledge-O-Matic goo!
