Smash it up with the hilarious Gallagher!
Comic Gallagher has been performing on stages since the 1970’s. An American comedian who has entertained nationally and internationally, he became loved for his unique brand of prop comedy. Best known for smashing all sorts of things, especially watermelons, Leo Anthony Gallagher Jr. remains to be one of the most popular and recognizable live show comics.
He was born in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with a curious mind and a humorous streak. Before Gallagher became famous, he had earned a chemical engineering degree from the University of South Florida. Once he moved to Los Angeles, he began developing his comedy act at a well-known club on the Sunset Strip called The Comedy Store.
Since the 1980’s, Gallagher performed fourteen comedy specials for the premium cable channel, Showtime, which have been repeatedly brought back to life on the Comedy Central channel.
Having performed over the decades during long tours, Gallagher now brings his act to even more fans. A little older, a little wiser, but always a surpriser! Bookings are being accepted for this funny and entertaining performance – perfect for any corporate event, festival, casino, fundraiser, night club, college, and general theaters across the country. His act is still fresh, creative, and his universal comedic style appeals to audiences of all kinds.
