Comedy, City Picks


When: Wed., Aug. 18, 7:05 p.m. 2010

It is strongly advised that you bring a poncho to Wednesday’s RiverDogs game against the Rome Braves. Not because of a risky weather forecast, but because Gallagher, the famed watermelon smasher, will appear at the Joe. The mustachioed and crazy-maned comedian has been performing for decades, hitting his peak in the ’80s with his Sledge-O-Matic act. Gallagher will perform a stand-up routine after the game’s ninth inning, taking his mallet to various unsuspecting inanimate objects; first-row ticket holders better brace themselves. Besides obliterating fruit, Gallagher will also throw the first pitch and lead the crowd with “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at the seventh-inning stretch. He’ll also appear at Club H2O in North Charleston on Aug. 20 and 21. —Susan Cohen
