Gallagher: Two Real (1981)
Director: Marc Payton
Starring: Gallagher, Karen 'Sarge' Sargent
More info: IMDb
Plot: Gallagher's back and this time he's smashing shit and cracking jokes.
My rating: 8/10
Will I watch it again? Absolutely.
In Gallagher's second special, this one starts out with the Sledge-O-Matic routine, moves onto phony news, balloon animals, a VERY funny husband & wife bit where they each think they're both talking about the same thing - he's discussing golf while she's discussing their sex life, and ends with a daring attempt by a watermelon diving 30 feet into a wet sponge.
This feels like an extension of GALLAGHER: MAD AS HELL (1981) as that one didn't have Gallagher smashing anything. TWO REAL shows off the Sledge-O-Matic and his prop comic side. The husband/wife bit is the star of the show. This entire special is fantastic and a must for Gallagher fans.
