I was surprised when Tony P picked RoFo over Robb. For one thing, I thought they had this Beatle thing. For another (and it pains me to say it), Robb was very good on one of their initial shows -- he was quick and witty with the banter and moved the conversation along in a humorous way. I thought at the time that he had good rapport with both Tony and Gary.

I bet Robb was surprised too. And disappointed.

I wondered what done him in.

First of all, its PLU codes. Secondly, Eightt also knows everything about 60's and 70's television, which makes him invaluable in attracting the target demographic (males, 18-34).

It was great hearing Drab bitch about those two running hack bits on a conference call while REAL radio people were just trying to get off the line as quick as possible, while Chad played the Seven Days of the Week underneath it

It was the constant one-upping...Gary is already a better version of what Robb wants to be...I assume TP tired of Robb's little "the stupid question game" after an episode or two

It was on one of this week's episodes of BOaD, I think Tuesday, but that might have been the day Oscar talked about Mike melting down again about guns and making veiled digs at Chad

That's okay, we'll keep talking about what a disagreeable old asshole in need of ethical suicide SDM is. That won't be a problem for you because you're not him. The real SDM could post this exchange in the klub under his username. You can't. Just an attention seeker who thinks he has a winning bit like the nog cock guy.

Speaking of which anyone else notice Fattt Robbb getting out his giant shoehorn at 1:50? On a subsequent listening I feel less strongly about it but Brain Damage is clearly going to continue with the list and there's no daylight between his last mouth sound and Fattt Robbb's first. Maybe I've just been conditioned by past history to regard anytime Fattt Robbb opens his mouth as an interruption. Hi Fattt Robbb! How are those Moody Blues?

I don't know one male I have ever met that did not play at least one season of any sport. Blobb also did not get along with gym teachers. Why? Because they were real men who stood on their own two feet, supported their families, and did not screw co-workers. When it was brought up that Adrian was on the TTPS as a guest, you could feel the disappointment in Blobb. TP realized right away he was toxic!

For news today, Mike read the list of US Olympic Medals....Riveting? No lazy and easy.

While BOAD seems to be a yuckfest too, (too much over the top laughing), it has a good rhythm. It seems to meander and that's cool. I may tune in again. Especially if they bash Mike and Robb...

For you, maybe. Movie magazines, I don't read 'em. Tampons, I don't use 'em. You come around and see me later honey, when the bleeding subsides. Wake me and feed me a cherry pie then I will cut loose in your hair.

O5car has that phrase "douchebag thirties". Fattt Robbb is in his "douchebag lifetime".

last Tuesday's episode was pretty good too...At the 10:20 mark, Chad mentions Oscar making Mike do a separate podcast because if he talks politics on TMOS, it is bad for business... At the 20ish minute mark, Chad goes on to tell a tale of bumping into the Rueters while in the OBX and how they were relating all the uproar Mike has caused on facebook with his most recent tantrum...The fact that Mike hasn't referenced it yet is utterly shocking, I would assume he hasn't heard it yet...I would be surprised if Robb hasn't though

Not to be a forum Nazi, but ICP fucking sucks - you can take your Faygo swilling ass elsewhere.

Please stay on topic. And that topic is Gallagher. Discussions about TMOS are reluctantly tolerated by virtue of that conversation being “grandfathered in,” but hopefully the number of such posts will continue its inexorable decline.

Gallagher uber alles!

If you want to talk shit about TMOS, be my guest. The show is an absolute disaster and the guys are complete fucking twats.

But you know, the opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference. TMOS is irrelevant to me, therefore I transcend it. Those who continue to talk about it are simply showing that it does matter to them.

That’s why I choose to talk about Gallagher instead.

Yeah.. What's with that?
I didn't hear him even mention it. It must've been a fleeting reference.

I suspect turnout was the problem. Can't imagine anyone wanting to spend time with fat ass obnoxious idiot Mike.

Oscar asked Mike how his margaritas went over. Mike said he drank more of them than anyone. People mainly chose other things to drink.

Then on to other topics far more compelling, like the male/female breakdown of US medals. Don't forget the medals in mixed competition, Mike notes!

Just listened to it, my first BOaD podcast. It was really telling how little respect they have for Mike -- and Robb, though he's barely worth a mention.

Nice to hear normal talk without mindless (and unfunny) repetitive schtick.

well, we KNOW he hates Robb...And the Junkies, Lurch in particular, don't care for Mike, so it would stand to reason that the 5th Junkie wouldn't care much for him either

BOAD has an in-studio audience, no more than 20 I think. There's one guy whose laugh I find particularly annoying. Lately I've been listening to Chad's sports show even though I don't care about sports. Good bumper music and he's a good broadcaster. Number of Political Persuasions I've listened to: 0. Shouldn't say this but a couple times a year I listen to Cake and Cookies and can't he'p thinking it's better than TMOS.

Medical news Mike does not want to hear: Having bad genes doesn't mean you're fated to have heart disease. Not smoking, diet and exercise can have a very large effect. Family history does increase your risk slightly, but not as much as not doing those other things.

Picture me Smashin'
2PAC featuring Gallagher

------------

Yeah
Clear enough for ya? Yea right
Why you niggas look mad?
Y'all supposed to be happy I'm free!
Y'all niggas look like y'all wanted me to stay in jail
Ho bustas!

Picture me smashing in my 500 Benz
I got no love for these niggas, there's no need to be friends
They got me under surveillance, that's what somebody be telling
Know there's dope being sold, but I ain't the one selling!
Don't want to be another number
I gotta puff a gang of weed to keep from going under
The federales wanna see me dead
Niggas put prices on my head
Now I got two Rottweilers by me bed, I feed 'em lead
Now I'm released, how will I live?
Will God forgive me for all the dirt a nigga did, to feed kids?
One life to live, it's so hard to be positive
When niggas shooting at your crib
Mama, I'm still thugging, the world is a war zone
My homies is inmates, and most of them dead wrong
Full grown, finally a man, just scheming on ways
To put some green inside the palms of my empty hands

Just picture me smashin'
Flossing a Benz on rims that isn't stolen
My dreams is censored, my hopes are gone
I'm like a fiend that finally sees when all the dope is gone
My nerves is wrecked, heart beating and my hands are swollen
Thinking of the G's I'll be holdin', picture me smashin'
Can you see me now? (Oh picture me smashin')
Move to the side a little bit so you can get a clear picture
Can you see it?
Picture me smashin' (picture me smashin')
Yeah nigga!
Ay, but peep how my nigga Syke do it to you
Guess who's back?
I got keys coming from overseas
Cost a nigga 200 G's
I'm a street commando, Nino for example
This lavish lifestyle is hard to handle
So I got to floss 'cause I'm more like a boss player
Thug, branded to be a women-layer
So many player haters, imitators steady swanging
Make me wanna start back banging
So I'm caught up in the game, dress code changed
Packing 40 Glocks, contain em or rearrange
All that jealousy and envy coming from my enemies
While I'm sipping on Remy
In front of black Lexus, Chevy's on the roam
'96 Big body, sitting on chrome
As we head up out the zone, stone-facing is on
You can admire, but don't look too long
I'm living a dream with triple beams and my pockets bulgin'
It's hard to imagine picture me smashin'!
Picture, picture me smashin'
Smashin', picture me smashin'
Wheelin', picture me smashin'
Picture me yea yeah
I gots to get the fuck up in it
Formulate a caper
'Cause a nigga straight suffering from lack of having paper
My bitch fin' to have a bastard, see?
So I needs to hit a lick, drastically
I see some ballin' ass niggas, and they slippin' in my spot
And, uh, diggin the plots (so what?)
Checking in the park, 'Pac
We caught em sleeping, he didn't peep you niggas creeping?
This how we do it every weekend
I dump for madness, it's time to count the profit
Cpo, we got the bomb spot, nigga time to clock it
I get the liquor, and you could get the females
This crooked shit that we inflicting getting street sales!
Move smooth as a motherfucker, me and my 9
I'm as cool as a motherfucker, I'mma get mine
Now we satisfied, got the pockets on swollen
Boss Hog and this 'Pac nigga, picture us smashin'
Smashin'
Picture me smashin'
Picture me
Picture me smashin'
Is y'all ready for me?
Picture me smashin' roll call
You know there's some muh'fuckers out there
I just could not forget about
I wanna make sure they can see me
Number one on my list Clinton Correctional Facilities
All you bitch ass C.O.'s
Can you niggas see me from there?
Ballin on y'all punk ass!
Picture me smashin, baby
Yeah
All them niggas up in them cell blocks
I told y'all niggas when I come home it's on
That's right nigga, picture me smashin'
Oh, I forgot! The D.A
Yeah, that bitch had a lot to talk about in court
Can the ho see me from here?
Can you see me, ho?
Picture me smashin'
And all you punk police
Can you see me?
Am I clear to you?
Picture me smashin' nigga, legit
Free like O.J. All day
You can't stop me
You know I got my niggas up in this motherfucker
Manute, Pain, Syke, Cochran, Mopreme
It's sad dog
Can you picture us smashing?
Can you see me ho?
Is y'all ready for me?

Rewind this track right here, close your eyes

Tried the Big O and Dukes show -- the episodes that were mentioned here. Much much better than TMOS. No (fake) fawning over the host... more honest give and take... less fake laughter... less schtick.

Then I turn on today's TMOS and I hear the lame "mail bag" bit. Sheesh.
Unbearable. I had to shut it down.

Klubers continue to Klub!

So, when Mike was doing the promo for the digitizing company on yesterday's show, he mentioned he was going to do it to preserve memories for his son.
Why not his daughters?


Over 33 minutes of the mail bag. WTF? The fact is this was not an improvement. Shorten the damn segment or get rid of it.


They need their own FFX U Page!!!!!

BOaD definitely has it's moments, but there is a bit of Mike in Chad...He has taken to screening the Peanut Gallery(their live audience) because people aren't doubling over with laughter the entire show...As for the Failbag, Mike tried to make a big deal about the great job they did revamping the whole process...All they did was read all the birthdays in one run on sentence, the rest was the same...In a week or two, Mike will be tired of the impressions and feeling put upon to have to do them on the spot...again

Gallagher’s got an idea. A brilliant one, natch.

$$$$$$$$$$$



Leo Gallagher is standing on the patio of Gramps Bar in Wynwood and explaining his new pro-gay play to a group of disheveled hipsters. The prop comic grew up in South Tampa and became famous in 1980 for his first special, "An Uncensored Evening." Although in decades past, the now-67-year-old was known for smashing watermelons on stage, he's currently famous for being racist and homophobic. Gallagher's also sporting the same hairstyle from 20 years ago, except it's all turned grey and is kept hidden under a fedora.

The subject matter of his latest script doesn't seem like it could come from the same man who quipped on stage in 2010 that the French "ruin our language with their faggy words" and re-interpreted the meaning of the phrase "we are nothing but dust" as "What is butt dust? Is that what you get if your homosexual isn't properly lubricated?"

Which brings us to this brainbuster: Why is Gallagher going around Wynwood and showing everyone the new play he's finishing up? Well, it's because it's about gay ballroom dancers, and this is the arts district. Duh.

But, wait, isn't this the same Gallagher whose entire schtick in recent years involves being a right-wing demagogue?

The comedy legend explains it's all an act. Oh, OK, Gallagher. Enjoy your time at Gramps.

Anyway, Riptide pulled out an audio recorder once Gallagher started talking about his new play, The Next Step. (And yes, we later emailed with him to confirm it was in fact Leo Gallagher and not his lookalike brother Ron). Here's what happened:

So, Gallagher, what's your new play about?

It's about two guys in love, and they both are dance teachers, and one of them is from the Midwest, and he always dressed in drag because the men who wanna learn tango don't feel right dancing with a guy, and so they never knew it was a man dressed as a woman. So he goes to the East Village, and he meets another dancer, and they become a couple, and they wanna audition for a movie. But the one who's a girl most of the time doesn't want to be a girl the whole time. So this brings up my idea for switchable clothing. I wanna sell the clothes after the show!

So, wait, back up. Why are you doing this? Are we in an alternate dimension?

Why if the homosexuals are everywhere do they have to dance heterosexually? Why?

Big tall guys are sleeping with each other, so why don't they dance with each other? Why don't we get to see them dance? I think that they'd probably be good together. And girls, too. We could open up choreography to a whole new area instead of what they do now, which is have the guy present the girl like a pretty flower. I'm done. I'm done. I'm done. So "The Next Step" is same-sex dancing.

So it's a play with a message?

My idea is a play gives other people ideas that why not have these contests. instead of on TV where they dance and it's always a guy -- and most of the guys are gay -- so what?

You're conservative on stage now, so does this clash with your new persona or contradict your personal beliefs?

It's hard to tell. I'm an artist. I observe human behavior. I pretend like I'm a guy from another planet, and I come here to visit, and then I tell you what I see of your behavior, whether it's logical or consistent. If i became involved in human life, then I wouldn't be good as an artist, because I wouldn't be on the mountain of objectivity.

So where did you come up with the idea for the show?

I just say it's illogical for gays to dance with straight people. HELLO -- why am I coming up with the idea? I'm saying that the whole area of choreography should be open to all humans.

When two spirits combine it's win-win net-net/Start with either foot/there's no incorrect/the whole world moves forward/"The Next Step."

What else are you concocting? I think you mentioned selling merch?

I'm designing clothing that switches from male to female while dancing. I've talked to homosexuals and asked them "How much of a girl are you?" and they'll tell me "60/40," so I think "How can you dance a whole dance with the other guy leading, won't you wanna lead sometimes?" No, sometimes you wanna sweep across the floor, and sometimes you wanna be swept. Gay bars are the most fun. Why don't we have clothing for wearing on the dance floor there? I'm designing shoes that go from flats to high heels.

This is genius. Please just say more things.

So I'm also thinking why does everybody sit in their seats in the theater? So, then I'm thinking, these scenes at the gay bar are gonna be important scenes in the play, so everybody should dance. And so you don't sit down at this play. You dance all the songs.

Please, for the love of God, Gallagher, tell us you will star in this play.

Nah. The characters aren't

If you thought talking up records was unlistenable, how about a letter asking Mike about talking up records. Which led to him talking up records. Oy.

One from the Gallagharchives that I think you'll like. Evidently, a while back Gallagher was a guest on Mark Maron's WTF podcast - and things got a little intense. Sit back and enjoy!


$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

In the history of pop culture, few have been given as much, and appreciated it as little, as the sad, troll-like creature professionally known as Gallagher. By seemingly every standard other than his own, Gallagher has been obscenely, undeservedly, surreally lucky. Against impossible odds and the better judgment of the American public, Gallagher has managed to ride a silly, scatological gimmick involving taking a sledgehammer to watermelons into decades of fame, fortune and television infamy.

Gallagher has made millions of dollars, starred in special after special (14 one-hour pay cable specials, as he will be the first to mention) and has enjoyed a sex life far more active than a man of his non-existent charm and disturbing looks merits. Yet in Gallagher’s warped imagination, he has been fucked over as completely and inexcusably as any bluesman or hard-working Motown session musician.

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 fucking watermelons, right? What do you think he did that for, his fucking 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.

So when Gallagher’s people contacted Marc Maron’s people about Gallagher appearing on WTF it seemed likely that these two combustible, very different characters would clash. And clash they did, to the point where Gallagher stormed out of the interview, and Maron’s hotel room, after just a half hour.

Maron begins the episode by pointing out that it was not his idea to book Gallagher, but that he’d heard reports in The A.V. Club and The Stranger about the homophobic, racist nature of Gallagher’s contemporary material. I suspect part of the reason Gallagher was so indignant was because he realized that Maron did not respect him enough to treat him as anything other than a mild annoyance, a dumb silly joke of a man from the 1980s who had somehow reinvented himself from a harmless dumb joke to a harmful, spiteful, and hateful mean joke.

Maron didn’t have Gallagher on because he was an important figure with provocative ideas, as Gallagher undoubtedly sees himself, but because some folks were curious about just how awful this sad, silly little man had become so why the hell not spend an hour of his life talking to him? “Why the hell not?” seems the operating idea behind having Gallagher on WTF and it doesn’t take long for an answer to arrive.

Introducing the episode, Maron reflects of his guest, “Obviously, I’ve only heard negative things about him recently. I know who he is. I know what he does. I do not have any particular problem with him.” Maron concedes that he did not handle Gallagher as well as he would have liked to, that he did not do a whole lot of research but instead was going off the current conception of Gallagher as a right-wing hate monger, which, it should be noted, was not overly flattering but also wasn’t exactly untrue.

Gallagher’s storming out seems to have made Maron philosophical rather than angry, causing him to reflect on the nature of desperation and how it’s possible to feel cheated professionally no matter how successful you are, and at various points Gallagher was about as successful as a comedian got. He’s just doomed to be a Dane Cook rather than a Louis CK.

Maron mentions more than once that there’s a good chance that listeners loved Gallagher as children and he wants to honor the intense emotional connection people once felt with Gallagher even as he reveals the awful man Gallagher has become. In that respect, Gallagher comes off a little like Bill Cosby in that it is difficult to reconcile the lovable clown children adored and thought was one of them with the awful, hateful, grotesquely entitled and bitter men they eventually became.

Not long after the abbreviated interview began, Gallagher says that the kids today don’t know who he is. He says it with weary resignation rather than anger but it’s clear that Gallagher will not forgive the kids today for not knowing who he is or approaching him with the appropriate reverence.

It doesn’t take long for the bitter has-been to get indignant. When Maron assures Gallagher he’s still a well-known comic, Gallagher retorts, “Why don’t I have my own TV show then, if I’m a well known comic?” in a way that suggests he angrily screams that question into the mirror every morning, then weeps uncontrollably when no comforting answer is forthcoming.

For a brief moment, however, when Gallagher is breathlessly reciting Comedy Store lore from the 1970s and talking shit about contemporaries like Tom Dreesen it seems like this might be an enjoyably bitter, gossipy exploration of one man’s vitriolic delusions instead of a super-tense one.

Gallagher rages against the ghost of Johnny Carson for the unforgivable crime of not liking prop comics (despite Carson being a magician!, Gallagher notes) and details his unlikely ascent in show-business as the opening act for Kenny Rogers, who did not care for Gallagher’s Iranian Hostage Crisis-themed dick jokes, especially since his mother was in the audience. It’s an early indication that Gallagher’s xenophobia/racism are not of a recent vintage.

As long as Gallagher is in the world of old school comedy gossip, things are relatively civil. Gallagher derides Jay Leno as having an act that was “very forgettable” as a prelude for a very paranoid conspiracy theory that Gallagher was owed his own talk show but Gallagher had to leave town regularly to make a fortune performing before adoring audiences, so Leno and Letterman sneakily exploited his absence to steal the hit talk shows that rightly belonged to Gallagher by virtue of his incredible popularity and talent.

“I wanted to make big money,” Gallagher insists, and brays that he did, but he did so under the most difficult, impossible of circumstances: selling live tickets in a down economy. Gallagher then recounts how he tried to sell the Veg-o-Matic routine that made him famous to George Carlin and Albert Brooks but they inexplicably turned him down. As a thought experiment, try to imagine an alternate universe where Carlin is famous for smashing watermelons and instead of being the brainiest, most comic’s comic in existence, Albert Brooks was beloved in Branson for his habit of smashing watermelons with a hammer.

Gallagher tells stories that sound too good to be true, from how he travels the country teaching people about physics (he was a chemist by trade before he became a comedian) to owning the rights to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before they became the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

About thirty three minutes in, however, things take a turn when Maron brings up the widespread conception that Gallagher’s act is racist and homophobic, in addition to being terrible (in this case, being terrible and hacky is somehow the least of Gallagher’s transgressions). Gallagher does not like that assertion at all. Gallagher perversely insists that he’s never written a homophobic joke because he tells jokes other people wrote, as if that is somehow an acceptable explanation, or something that will carry weight with a comic’s comic like Maron.

Gallagher presents, “What does Seigfried have in common with the tiger? They both know what Roy tastes like” as the kind of gay joke too exquisite and delicious not to recycle even if he didn’t write it, and Maron somehow does not seem amused at all. “Can I pick on Arabs?” Gallagher then asks of what he sees as Maron’s hyper-sensitivity (which everyone else would see merely as “sensitivity”), before clarifying that Arabs are the enemy, as evidenced by the fact that Gallagher has to wait in security for hours, which probably completely fucks with the way he transports cocaine in his luggage during domestic flights.

Digging himself even deeper into a hole of his own devising, Gallagher refers to homosexuals as “God’s joke.” Gallagher posits himself as a fearless truth teller opposed by the glowering, humorless forces of political correctness but his “I’m a comic!”, “It’s a nightclub!” and “It’s comedy! Take a joke!” do nothing to negate his misanthropic awfulness.

Gallagher hauls out Lisa Lampinelli as someone who does more offensive racial humor than he does and gets a pass and when Maron points out that a lot of her jokes are about fucking black guys, Gallagher suggests that he’s not entirely convinced that she’s not merely pretending to have sex with black men for the sake of jokes.

The tone grows progressively more tense and charged and the volume increases accordingly as Gallagher launches a progressively more nonsensical defense of gay jokes and insensitivity and not giving a fucking about what your audience thinks of your material. Though Maron criticizes himself for being too aggressive, his anger comes off as righteous and merited rather than self-righteous or shrill, as when Gallagher, who is damn near shouting at that point, insists, “I’m not angry” (in a very angry tone of voice), and he answers, “You’re a guy who smashes things.”

Gallagher seems willing to defend to the grave his right, nay, his responsibility, to retain five lesbian jokes he heard from cab drivers in his act. Otherwise, the terrorists have won. Or something. Then Gallagher, shortly after asserting that all comedians want to work state fairs (take that, Mitch Hedberg!) storms the fuck out.

“Oh c’mon, Gallagher!” Maron implores after Gallagher stomps off in a pique. The interview is only half finished, but it only took a half hour of gentle and then not-so-gentle questioning for Maron to get Gallagher to truly reveal himself in all his ugly awfulness.

Gallagher’s sad decline is a rinky-dink echo of Bill Cosby’s fall from the grace. But the scale is different. What Cosby did is a goddamned American tragedy whereas what Gallagher did to himself, his career, and his image is merely unfortunate.

"Talking up records" -- never a good thing. Always annoying.

Even back in the day, when it was regularly done on AM-radio, listeners couldn't stand it. We just wanted to hear the music.

Why anyone in this day and age would repeatedly do it -- in the name of entertainment -- is beyond me.

For Robb and Oscar (who surely knows better) to yuck it up is pathetic.

Another one from the Gallagharchives while I'm down in the stacks.
Enjoy, fellow Gallagherians!

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$



I guess I should have mentioned that this is the “real” Gallagher appearing at the Lincoln Square Theatre and in Effingham and Springfield next week.

Bits of confusion remain about Gallagher's brother Ron, who did Gallagher's act for a few years in the 1990s In 2000, Leo (the 'real' Gallagher) won a lawsuit preventing his brother from doing the impersonation act.

This is relevant to Decatur because one of Ron's last copycat shows was held at the Lincoln in July 2000. That show had been rescheduled from a June date, as Leo's court battle put Ron on the sidelines for a bit before playing the show.

In 2009, the “real” Gallagher (again, the one coming to Central Illinois next week) self-promoted a “no-smash” show at the Decatur Civic Center. After few tickets were sold in advance, the Civic Center show was cancelled.

(It's worth noting the Lincoln Square Theatre reports good ticket sales, with the “smash zone” almost sold out.)

So those factors combine to cause some confusion among long-time Decatur comedy followers.



It probably should have occurred to me to make the clarification on the individual. But when the court decision went against impersonator Ron, I was aware of it, and honestly assumed it had been around long enough to be group knowledge. Or at least knowledge among the group of people who were aware of the acts of Gallagher and his brother. That was 16 years ago.

So the Journalism 101 edict about assuming (ass plus you plus me) was disregarded in a textbook-example type of error.

But my thoughts about it being group knowledge went back to the point I first reached out to Gallagher's camp with an interview request. When the interview was scheduled, the go-between told me “Two conditions ...” I always balk at conditions, but I'll generally also listen to them. In this case, the conditions were “No questions about where he got the idea for (trademark food-smashing implement of destruction) Sledge-O-Matic, and no questions about his brother.”

I stifled a laugh, because I had no intention of asking him about either. Given the length of his career, if people want to know where the idea for Sledge-O-Matic came from, they know. It also seemed improbable that anyone would need or want to know about the sibling battle. That's 16 years in the past. He's told that story already. He has a new one to tell. (And he did.)

When I interviewed Gilbert Gottfried in advance of his appearance earlier this year at the Civic Center, I didn't ask him about losing his job as the voice of the AFLAC duck five years ago. He's told that story plenty of times. He had new ones to tell.

But I certainly could have found a way to explain that this year's performer is the “real” Gallagher, and I should have.

Nice that Mike visits his son's preschool every 2 years or so.

Stand-Up Tuesdays is a weekly comedy spotlight written by the wonderfully talented Angie Frissore. Covering both known and unknown comics, Stand-up Tuesdays is your new source for all things funny.

This week, Angie puts a spotlight on Gallagher's comedy career. If your or your comedy troupe would like to be featured on Stand-Up Tuesdays, please email utgjames@gmail.com.

------

As long as I've loved comedy (which is just shy of thirty years), I've loved Gallagher. Yes, I openly admit that I've been a huge fan of the prop comic, having grown up on his comedy and being able to have enjoyed it into adulthood. Hell, I've even gotten some watermelon on me a couple times in my life. So while it saddened me to hear of the legendary comedian's retirement this year, I was delighted to learn that he wasn't leaving without one last hurrah. Gallagher's second and final comedy CD, I Am Who I Pretend To Be (via Uproar Entertainment) is a stand-up only, no-holds-barred grand finale that only he could pull off.

Taped at the Ice House in Pasadena, I Am Who I Pretend To Be may not include any fruit-smashing (which would be pointless anyway, as it's a CD), but it's a nonstop hour of shameless, cutting humor that fans have come to love from the comedian. Fitting for a final performance, Gallagher infuses newer humor with older themes to point out the absurdity in humankind. No one is spared from Gallagher's sharp tongue: men, women, heterosexual couples, the French (the French aren't spared anything as Gallagher lambasts our usage of their vocabulary).

Here's where I would normally point out things that could have been done differently or improved upon, but we're talking about Gallagher here. In the world of stand-up comedy, Gallagher is pretty much in his own class. It's also his last performance before he hangs up his hat, so really, there's no point in nit-picking (even if I don't think he needs to explain why Jesus would have loved Twitter).

Before he closes his last show, Gallagher treats his audience to some pearls of wisdom, with the delightful accompaniment from a sitar. "They say cleanliness is next to godliness," he muses. "But I looked it up. Goggles is next to godliness."

If you are have the Gallagher fan that I am, you'll definitely want to pick up a copy of I Am Who I Pretend To Be as soon as possible. It would be one of the most hilarious ways you'll spend an hour.

It's in their DNA to talk over everything and insert their hacky essence wherever and whenever they can. Damn genetics.

Mike gets his hair cut at Walmart now? How the mighty have fallen. Why not just get it done at PetSmart with Beluga and Frankie?

Minute 41 of today's show is where the action is.

Brain Damage says "I will tell you something"

Fattt Robbb says with his usual mis-allocated confidence "It's spelled with an 's'."

Hi Fattt Robbb! Fuck you now Fattt Robbb! How are those Moody Blues Fattt Robbb?

I'll see you and raise: on Tony P, Spewak sez he does Cake and Cookies about twice a month.

In last 7 months, he's done exactly 8. He was soooo close. He did round up to nearest even number, I'll concede.

Also, he was in My Fair Lady in high school.

Spewak also prefers Patton over Lawrence of Arabia, in part because Patton was "based in fact."

No one said he was history buff.

Kid'll have his driver's license before he graduates from preschool. Brain Damage went on and on today about how all the teachers at the shooting school were excellent (how would he know?) and how he's glad to live in a community like the one that has the shooting school, except that's 240 miles away and he lives in a retirement community.

He's not even a history big-ball-of-shapeless-dough-or-goo-scientists-aren't-sure. "Spewak" and "buff" in ANY sense are words that don't go together. Now "Spewak" and "Knowitall" is another matter. Or "Spewak" and "morbidly obese" or "Spewak" and "In lieu of flowers" or "Spewak" and "survived by".

Hi Fattt Robbb! Fuck you now, Fattt Robbb! How are those Moody Blues Fattt Robbb?

Fat Robbb gets yelled out twice for not have a sound when first a caller nails Mikes verbal Crutch. He is so fucking lazy. He said he would get a horn earlier in the week. The second time, min 58, Mike caught himself. At 38 he is yelled at again. It was a good day.

Robb is only good at pressing sound element buttons at the same time every show, like the fatt lazyy monkeyy he is.

Don't ask him to change or add to his routine. That's too much for his ape mind to handle.

Hey man, like when was the last time they had to blow off their Monday to read to 4 and 5 year olds? That's the day Mike uses to ease back into the workweek for God's sake!

Guys, don't you think it would be ironic if Gallagher's favorite bands of the 80s and 90s were Wham! and Smashing Pumpkins, respectively?

I'm not a Billy Corgan fan by any means - he seems quite a narcissist - but if comedy's Gallagher rates him, I'd certainly put on Siamese Dream in his honor.

I'm presently going back into the Gallagharchives. More fun awaits you all!
