Quote of the Day:

Gallagher

  • I know what people laugh at. I know their vocabulary.
  • I don't say that I'm going to be like every other comic that's blue, or gratuitous use of language. I do try to have my own standards: I don't do everything the audience wants, and I do try to surprise them.
  • I know that I am an excellent live performer. I know that I have spent my life paying attention to my art form, developing my art form, worrying about my show and what it is I'm bringing to people, making sure that I give them a fine trade. They get a two-hour show, sometimes a three-hour show, for a decent price.
  • Detroit is drunken idiots. It was no surprise to me. I performed with Kenny Rogers for one year as his opening act, and I got to visit every major American city and notice the audience, and Detroit was one of the worst.
  • I need wrong to get laughs. I need a normal world so that I can be abnormal, and that's my problem. Comedians need prejudice.
  • People don't know how to behave in public anymore.
  • Parents are trying to be friends with their kids rather than draw the line and tell them what proper public behavior would be.
  • I have spent my life paying attention to my art form, developing my art form, worrying about my show and what I'm bringing to people, making sure that I give them a fine trade.
  • I don't want to overthrow the government. I wanna fire 'em.
  • I was the first one to allow a projectile to come off of the stage and into the audience. And I kind of take responsibility for the mosh pit.
