Personal Quote:

I don't want to overthrow the government. I wanna fire 'em.


Named daughter Aimee as a contributing writer to his act (with her allowance paid out of her salary) for business purposes, when she was still a preschooler. Their talks as father and daughter provided endless raw material, as Gallagher tried to answer Aimee's questions about life, so the arrangement made sense. See more »
