Gallagher’s Farewell Tour visits Beverly’s Larcom Theater on October 25th
M.E. Productions presents comedian Gallagher for the last time at the Larcom Theatre.
“Rolling Stone Magazine” calls the famous watermelon smasher, “One of the greatest comics of all time.”
He pioneered the television stand-up comedy special, racking up 14 Showtime specials during the height of his career in the 80s. Gallagher also captured headlines as a candidate for governor in the freewheeling 2003 California recall election. In one of his campaign appearances, he lamented the state of the nation’s collective IQ. “Don’t you wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence?” he asked. “There’s one marked ‘brightness,’ but it doesn’t work.”
Gallagher’s stage show has evolved over the years, and he now interacts more with his audiences. People from the crowd are often invited up on stage to share in the fun. One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is Gallagher’s reputation as an audience-friendly performer who genuinely enjoys his gigs. He always takes extra time to sign autographs and pose for pictures with every fan in theater lobbies before and after performing.
Tickets to see Gallagher’s Farwell Tour are $29, $39, and $44. For tickets and more information visit www.larcomtheater.com or call 978-525-9093.
