Maybe it's because of what a bizarre, angry reactionary he's become in the past decade but their tangent about Gallagher being an amazing Expendables/Bond villain was spot-on. At the very least I could see him nailing something like Rodney Dangerfield's role in Natural Born Killers.

The guys ruined 'Martha' for me, which I'd forgotten is quite a lovely Tom Waits song. Also 'Martha My Dear'.

I love that their Gallagher impression is based on the WTF interview. It took me a second to figure out why Gallagher was yelling at "Mark".

For those of you who might not know, Gallagher had an amazing meltdown on the WTF podcast several years ago. Seek it out, it's pretty great.

I remember listening to it while rolling through WTF episodes during work a year or two ago, and for the life of me I still can't recall what the hell actually happened in that interview. I don't remember why Gallagher became so indignant and angry and stormed out. I'm gonna check it out again.

Basically Gallagher was a gay hippie stoner who somehow turned into a right wing nutjob closet case. If you can find the unedited video of his first ever performance in a New York City underground comedy club, it's actually kind of great. I think it was on Hulu or Netflix recently.

http://splitsider.com/2015/11/that-time-gallagher-displayed-his-true-awfulness-and-then-stormed-out-on-marc-maron/

quote:

Oh sure, Gallagher has made millions and was on television regularly for decades, but in his mind he deserved tens of millions of dollars and his own late night television show. Gallagher’s monstrous and deluded ego won’t accept anything less than a David Letterman or Jay Leno level of fame, success, and money as his rightful due. I mean, he did smash all those loving watermelons, right? What do you think he did that for, his loving health? No, he did it so your moron son will fork over his cash for a t-shirt and a CD and your dumb slut of a daughter would give him a hand job after the show, as is his due (I don’t think your son’s a moron and your sister’s a slut, but Gallagher sure does, and he isn’t too keen on you, either).

Gallagher truly hates his audience. Over the course of writing a book about Insane Clown Posse I attended four of their notorious yearly festivals of arts and culture and the only time I ever felt unsafe was during Gallagher’s racist, sexist, and homophobic performance, where he sprayed contempt on the audience along with watermelon fragments and bursts of rotten mustard.

Gallagher hates his audience, he hates a world that has given him so much, and that in turn he has given so little, but perhaps more than anything he hates himself, so he tries to cover up that understandable, eminently justified self-loathing by professing to be better than everyone and everything he comes across.

About 5 years ago he sued his own brother for being a more successful comedian than he was.

There's also this rundown of one of his shows down south. It is :stare: as hell.

quote:

"Hey, President Obama," he spits out the name like a mouthful of burning hair. "You ain't black. I don't care what you say—you're a latte. You're half whole-milk. It could be goat milk—you could be a terrorist!" I am too busy losing my mind to catch the next joke, which is about Ted Kennedy's brain cancer. Aaaaand we're off.

Gallagher is upset about a lot of things. Young people with their sagging pants (in faintly coded racist terms, he explains that this is why the jails are overcrowded—because "their" baggy pants make it too hard for "them" to run from the cops). Tattoos: "That ink goes through to your soul—if you read your Bible, your body is a sacred temple, YOU DIPSHIT." People naming their girl-children Sam and Toni instead of acceptable names like Evelyn and Betty: "Just give her some little lesbian tendencies!" Guantánamo Bay: "We weren't even allowed to torture all the way. We had to half-torture—that's nothin' compared to what Saddam and his two sons OOFAY and GOOFAY did." Lesbians: "There's two types—the ugly ones and the pretty ones." (Um, like all people?) Obama again: "If Obama was really black, he'd act like a black guy and get a white wife." Michael Vick: "Poor Michael Vick." Women's lib: "These women told you they wanna be equal—they DON'T." Trans people: "People like Cher's daughter—figure that out. She wants a penis, but she has a big belly. If you can't see your dick, you don't get one." The Rice Krispies elves: "All three of those guys are gay. Look at 'em!" The Mexicans: "Look around—see any Mexicans? Nope. They'll be here later for the cleanup." The French: "They ruin our language with their faggy words."

This was a guy whose whole shtick was goofy inventions prop comedy and smashing watermelons.

He was a goofy hippie up until like 1987 at least. I used to watch his tv specials as a kid. He said was charming and imaginative and used wordplay.

Was he another casualty of 9/11?

It's a shame because aside from his watermelon-smashing gimmick old Gallagher was a perfectly fine comedian, especially since kids seemed to be a lot of his audience. Nothing amazing but a lot of his routine was simple observational humor and wordplay, he only got really hackish and hateful as the years went by.

I was never a huge fan of his but my dad loving loved him, so I saw all his 70/80/90s specials back in the day. His early material and the wordplay reminded me a fair bit of George Carlin if he were a prop comic. By the time I was in high school I remember we all just thought of him as a comedian our parents liked who was a hack, sort of like a Yakov Smirnoff relic of ages past, but he was completely harmless. Finding out he took a heel turn sharper then Dennis Miller is just sad and weird.

What's with these comedians taking the turn for the radical crazy territory as they grow older?

Even Carlin got kind of mean towards the end, but he never dipped into the radical right like others have. He was just fed up with the establishment being hardcore corporate cronies and, well, everything really.

He's a comforting and comfortable benign fixture from childhood for a lot of us, like Far Side cartoons or Red Dwarf on PBS. I don't know what an international equivalent would be--Dr. Who? Tintin? Except now he's evil. It's disorienting for us.
