Cue the extreme Gallagher fans.


I can’t help but think that I’m going to get shit for this from some huge Gallagher fans who strongly object to my referring to him as a prop comic, but what else do you call watermelon smashing?  That’s not snark, it’s a real question.

Also, if there is a huge subset of Gallagher aficionados on the internet (probably, because everything is somewhere on the internet), and one of them actually reads this blog (highly unlikely), then I really want to know about it.  I could see that being the new hipster thing, maybe — and then when too many people have decided to like Gallagher ironically, they could move on to the ineffable horror that is Carrot Top.  Carrot Top = totally incapable of being effed.  I hope.

Look at me, talking smack.

    I was listening to a Nerdist podcast recently where they talked about Gallagher. Nerdist is very often a class in stand-up comedy (the hosts are all either stand-ups themselves or huge fans of the form). They all respect Gallagher as a comedian; he did do other things besides watermelon-smashing. But everyone came for the Sledge-o-Matic, and artists need to give the viewing public what they want, so it became more and more about the melon-smashing. Too bad.
