Sure, it's almost 20 years old, but this is still some of the best stand up comedy I've ever seen.
17 July 2001 | by Anonymous_MaxineSee all my reviews

In one of his earlier stand-up videos, Gallagher solidifies himself as one of the funniest and zaniest comedians in the world. His genius use of props as well as his trade-mark of smashing miscellaneous produce in front of the crowd with his Sledge-O-Matic (`...it is not a slicer, it is not a dicer, it is not a chopper or a hopper. What in the hell could it possibly be?!') have set him apart from other comedy acts. This is stand up comedy of the highest quality. He is not just up there making sick jokes, he analyzes the world and makes fun of the stupid stuff, like the locks on the doors at the 7-11 that's open 24 hours a day. He makes fun of commercials, school, the government, people in relationships, banks, pretty much everything that can be frustrating in real life. You've used that bathroom cleaner to clean off mildew that says to only use it in a well-ventilated area right? Gallagher says, `If it was well-ventilated there wouldn't be mildew on it!' This guy is a genius, not only is he endlessly hilarious, he also has a very active mind that makes things funny in ways that you wouldn't have ever thought of. His comedy is surprising, it's intelligent, it makes you think, and above all, it makes you grab your sides as you fall into almost painful hysterics. Go out and look for his videos, you won't regret it.
