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.

Gallagher's mad as hell but he never shows it, because he's cool as well. He's back in this 1981 special and telling jokes... to prevent his anger from building up.

This stand-up special kicks off with Gallagher's "Suitcase Circus", and out of it he pulls a new and improved Sledge-O-Matic. If he's smashing things right off the bat, you know this special is bound to get crazy.

24 June 2001 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is one of the dumbest things I've ever caught a glimpse of on TV. It's so un-funny and tasteless I wonder why they dug it up at Comedy Central, more than 10 years after this stinker came out. The members of the audience are given plastic cover-ups, while Gallagher smashes melons with maul on the stage.
