Episode 40: How To Entertain – An Interview With Gallagher the Comedian


Gallagher in the Studio with John Melley

So, awhile back I had the opportunity to interview one of my favorite childhood comedians, Gallagher.

Sure, his “Sledge-O-Matic” routine was sure to appeal to a 12 year old boy, but it appeals to adults too.

One bit I remembered was his observations on the inconsistencies of the English language. I marveled at his ability to string them into a story that made you laugh.

Prior to my interview he asked me to record a series of poems he had written. To watch him perform them was a real treat. To record them, an honor. To follow their meaning was an opportunity to appreciate the work of an amazingly clever and creative person.

I share one at the end of this episode.

Some of the thoughts he shares are controversial, but hey, all comedy is at some level and he has strong opinions.

Listen for his thoughts on How to entertain, practice and prepare. Listen to his strategic decisions. Learn why he makes the decisions he does and how/why he chooses a “Stress Free” life.

Lots of gems in this one. Enjoy!
