Many of you probably remember watching Gallagher smash things to bits on television in the 80s. But his comedy isnt for everyone his recent humor sometimes borders on racist, homophobic, and cheap. Gems like If Obama was really black, hed act like a black guy and get a white wife are to be expected. Considering his questionable choice of jokes, the whole watermelon-smashing bit might have been more than just silly fun. Should we give him a break, though? The man is old and set in his ways, just like a cranky grandparent. And who doesnt love Grandpa? Maybe Grandma if they divorced due to Grampss philandering and/or alcohol problems. Whoa, that got dark. The simple fact is Gallagher is a pretty funny dude and an iconic stand-up comic. Waste no time, folks. Grab your raincoats, ponchos, or umbrellas, because if youre daring enough to sit near the front row, youll be covered in crap. Perhaps not in the metaphorical sense either the man might be in the mood to push the envelope. Catch Gallagher this Tuesday at the Seminole Casino Hollywood. The definition of a good night is an evening teeming with jokes, alcohol, and egregious gambling. Thats a good one-fourth of the American dream right there. Tickets include a poncho and goggles.
