Gallagher (born Leo Anthony Gallagher, Jr. in Fort Bragg, North Carolina

Gallagher became famous in the 80’s for his unique brand of prop comedy…
smashing watermelons as part of his act. It is said that Johnny Carson didn’t
like his brand of comedy so he was only able to go on The Tonight Show when 
guest hosts were filling in for Johnny.

Before fame, Gallagher got a Chemical Engineering degree from the University
of South Florida in 1970. After he moved to Los Angeles he began developing
his comedy act while appearing at The Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip.
