Gallagher
Leo Anthony Gallagher was born at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He grew up in South Tampa, Florida, where he attended H.B. Plant High School. He graduated from the University of South Florida with a Chemical Engineering degree in 1970.


After college, Gallagher began working as comic/musician Jim Stafford's road manager. Stafford and Gallagher went out to California in 1969 and Gallagher decided to take the stage himself. He began honing his own comedy act while hanging out at both The Comedy Store and the Ice House.


Gallagher was one of the most popular and recognizable American comedians during the 1980s. He performed 14 comedy specials for Showtime. These shows have been re-broadcast numerous times, notably on Comedy Central. His first special was directed by Mike Nesmith, formerly of The Monkees.

His signature sketch was the "Sledge-O-Matic", a large wooden mallet that Gallagher uses to smash a variety of objects, most famously, watermelons. Gallagher was featured in a GEICO commercial where he goes wild at a farmers market with his signature Sledge-O-Matic.

In 2004, Comedy Central rated Gallagher the 100th best stand-up comedian of all time.[12] Gallagher was displeased with being ranked so low, and he told The Oregonian, "I looked at the other people and I was trying to find anyone I ever heard of. How could I be behind people I never heard of? ... I made 14 one-hour shows for Showtime, which are
Comedy specials.

I've lived my life not willing to have any regrets, not afraid to take on things that make me uncomfortable.

I never wanted to be a comedian. The particular dream and path that I had and planned for my future was that of being a rock star but you know what they say, "Man plans and God laughs".
