Gallagher is not only terrible, he's also apparently crazy.

No way. Necro is easy. The key to Necro is when he smirks and describes his buddies as his "creeps".

As a fat baby looking man he does loosely hate women though.

Necro and Gallagher are both awful entertainers and, so far as I can tell, awful human beings.

This isn't Andy Kaufman here. It's not even The Diceman. This is Gallagher.
If you can read about that act and question whether age and resentment has turned Gallagher bakook? ..well it makes me question your capacity to understand humanity.

I didn't read through this whole thread so I don't know if this was posted already, but this is all i needed to hear from Gallagher before I decided he was too angry and bitter to pay serious attention to: http://www.avclub.com/articles/gallagher,36622/?utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=feeds&utm_source=avclub_rss_daily

Yes. I posted that. The comments section of that is epic.

There's so many great quotes in that interview. This one is dope:
"I never have an opening act. Words are actors in your show. "

And if you can read that interview and not suspect that he's entirely cognizant of what he's doing, then you're very easily fooled. He obviously knows his comedy history, and has thought a lot about his methodology. It doesn't make him not batshit crazy, or not racist, or not homophobic, but I think it does underscore that his act is an act, unlike say Mel Gibson.

It just doesn't matter if he IS a racist.

It matters that he DOES the racism.

Judgement of the person is jerking off.

Ooh, that interview. I read some of it, and watched the video where he interrupts the opener. God Damn, some of it is an act but there is absolutely some bitter has-been old man with no retirement in there. He threw that opening comedian off his game, no consideration, empathy, or solidarity for an aspiring tradesman there. Complaining about how the internet is forcing him to be accountable, getting defensive right off the bat is some genuine bitterness. The shit about Bill Clinton, Baggy Pants, Pierced Noses, that's chaep scripted comedy with a tinge of conservative morality.

If only there was some way that he could vent his frustrations. Something he could hit...or smash. I don't know what though.

And he's also "thinking up really intelligent, insightful comments on the passing American scene" So you know Gallagher's thoughts = success.

Did you read that breakdown he gave about why comedians shouldn't drink bottled water? The guy is the Michangelo of smashing produce on a stage.
