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.

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.

One of Gallagher's best.
27 July 2001 | by Anonymous_MaxineSee all my reviews

Gallagher starts off this video talking about the differences between the 60s and the 80s, and it is some of the funniest comedy in any of his videos. He talks about how it seems that in the 70s they were trying to `re-do the 60s but it just ain't comin' out right, is it?' `The 60s were so exciting, what's happenin' now? Nothin'! I am so bored I'm flashin' back!' There is also a hilarious segment about pointing out stupidity. Like the one about the buffet (`I should have known something was wrong, you don't have a matre'd at a buffet, it's like a hubcap on a tractor!') or, even better, the one about having to tell the judge he was stupid (`'I want to go to traffic school.' ‘Okay, but don't be late!' ‘Judge, that's the same sh*t got me here!').

This kind of comedy doesn't translate into words very well, so it doesn't do it justice to give examples here. You just have to see this stuff for yourself. He comes out with his interesting inventions, his urge to point out stupidity in the world and to exercise your mind. This is intellectual comedy, which is one of the biggest values of Gallagher's comedy. He knows how to put on a good show and manages to be entertaining to a wide variety of audiences of nearly all ages. He's got to be one of the greatest stand-up comedians ever.
