commented on Gallagher Is a Paranoid, Right-Wing, Watermelon-Smashing Maniac
i'm so sorry that we are not friends, because i could have warned you.
i commented on the slog post yesterday with a link to an account of a new york show of his that i "experienced" a couple years ago.
my friends and i all felt like we had PTSD afterward.
it still hurts to eat watermelon.

commented on It's Gallagher Day! Mr. Gallagher Hijacks His Opening Act
gallagher is a trainwreck. i had the fortune (great stories)/misfortune (painful memory) of seeing the ol' watermelon smasher in NYC a few years ago. he was not able to sell enough tickets to a relatively mid-size theater and so the promoters brought some comics in to put butts in the seats. what followed was the most uncomfortable night of comedy i've ever experienced... luckily, my friend and blogger, Sean McCarthy, was there and chronicled (and videotaped) the event. it is more than worth a read. ow. my head hurts just thinking about it. http://thecomicscomic.typepad.com/thecom…
