Saw this on the Retroist and had to share. Nothing says mid-1980s like Gallagher in a Budweiser commercial.

I retract my comment, as it wasn't the right tone for this site.  Let's just say his routine probably isn't appropriate for families at a state fair.

I would think Gallagher would do really well at the state fair on the game where you slam a sledgehammer down on the pad that pops a ball up to ring that bell

Yeah.  But his act includes very crude and insensitive jokes.

Didn't Gallagher sell the name and entire act to his brother?

 

 

Also, I can't see Gallagher without thinking about Dave Chappelle's Black Gallagher skit.

I never knew Gallagher did a Bud commercial! Especially in 1985???? When we got our first VCR in 1986, we rented VHS tapes all the time and I rented all of the Gallagher tapes! They are classics. Now I have the entire collection (Gallagher Smash-o-matic Collection) on DVD. Its a must see!!
