Now, hes hoping to make a splash with a new audience with a DVD collection shaped like a watermelon titled, appropriately enough, Gallagher: The Smashing Watermelon Collection.
Gallagher estimates hes smashed more than 12,500 watermelons on stage but even he admits the bit has been both a blessing and a curse.
Although its a surefire closer, he admits the skit puts him into commas.
In his words, Theyll call you a watermelon- smashing comedian rather than, say, the first guy to pick on stupid people or the first to make fun of womens insanity with shopping.
Still, he plans to keep doing the bit because, as he puts it, Everything needs a climax, even sex.
Gallagher hopes the collection introduces him to a new audience and while he may never reach his former heights, hes okay with that because, I dont want to be liked by everybody because I dont like everybody.
