Gallagher, watermelon-smashing comedian, dead at 76

According to a statement provided to CNN by Marquardo, the comedian died
“after a short health battle” and “passed away surrounded by his family in
Palm Springs, California.”

Gallagher, born Leo Gallagher, became a household name in the early ’80s
with a comedy special titled “An Uncensored Evening,” the first comedy
stand up special ever to air on cable television.

Gallagher’s most famous bit involved a hand-made sledgehammer he called
the “Sledge-O-Matic,” which he would use to smash food on stage, spraying
the audience.

@Region Philbis,
Loved him.he was so original. Wished I’d seen him in person. Wonder why he wasn’t around. Think he went out of fashion?

@Ragman,
I enjoyed watching his shows, although the idea of being in the audience getting drenched in watermelon juice was not inspiring.

@glitterbag,
Either people in the front few rows wore plastic rain ponchos or the venues would have handed them out.

{edit: oh, I see the audience had plastic sheets/tarp.}
