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 dishes on the constant letdown of "heroes" such as politicians, sports figures, and TV preachers. Targets of his ridicule include Jimmy Swaggert, Bill Clinton, and Mike Tyson.

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.
