Gallagher Net Worth: Gallagher is an American comedian who has a net worth of $100 thousand. Born Leo Anthony Gallagher, Jr., in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Gallagher earned his chemical engineering degree from the University of South Florida. He also graduated with a minor in English Literature, which he credits as coming in handy when crafting his comedy skits. He worked as a road manager for Jim Stafford after graduation and began performing. Johnny Carson refused to have him on "The Tonight Show" because of his prop comedy style, but the producers eventually invited Gallagher on when Carson wasn't hosting. Overall, he has appeared in more than a dozen Showtime comedy specials that are routinely showed on Comedy Central. He's best known for his "Sledge-O-Matic" sketch involving a large wooden mallet and, typically, watermelons. The sketch led to a feud with his younger brother, who wanted permission to use the routine and began promoting his own acts in a way that led some folks to believe they were attending an original Gallagher performance. Gallagher was named to Comedy Central's Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All-Time, but disputed his ranking of 100. He ran for Governor of California in a recall election in 2003, finishing 16th. In 2014, he embarked on his farewell tour due to his declining health after suffering three heart attacks.
