This was a really great article. Gallagher really has always been this way (the gay jokes, differences between men and women, race jokes), but in the late 70 and 80s everybody was doing those kinds of jokes. He just never changed. On the aforementioned WTF Podcast, he says he doesn't believe in God and says he's just doing jokes, which I believe. He is crazy, clearly, but he knows his audience. He also thinks every comedian that goes on stage and talks about their own life (Marc Maron, Louis C.K. and the like) are hacks. Obviously, Gallagher is a hack. He is famous for smashing watermelons. You can't get hackier than that.

"I cannot believe Bill Hicks is dead and this motherfucker is still touring." is the best line.
