Comedy fans will have the opportunity to laugh with an all-time legend in an intimate setting when the one-and-only Gallagher takes the stage at Lake Norman Comedy Zone on Tuesday night, March 7 at 7 p.m. Gallagher became a household name in the 1980s smashing produce and other items with his trademark “Sledge-O-Matic.” A pioneer in prop comedy, Gallagher has written and starred in over a dozen television specials, which were heavily aired on both Showtime and Comedy Central in the 1980s and 1990s. Gallagher made headlines again in 2003 when he ran as an independent in the California gubernatorial recall election, which was won by Arnold Schwarzenegger. General Admission tickets for Gallagher at Lake Norman Comedy Zone are $25 and available at lkncomedyzone.com. Lake Norman Comedy Zone at Galway Hooker Pub is located at 17044 Kenton Drive, just off Interstate 77 in Cornelius. The Galway Hooker Pub believes that nothing inspires a great story like a delicious meal and a refreshing pint. That’s because the Galway Hooker is a story in and of itself. Originally built in Ireland, the pub was deconstructed and moved piece-by-piece to its current location off the shores of Lake Norman, just a stones throw from Charlotte, North Carolina. The pub is named for Galway Bay, which lies on the west coast of Ireland. Nearly all of the artifacts and décor inside the pub, including an authentic Galway Hooker boat, are from the area surrounding Galway Bay. The Galway Hooker serves traditional Irish favorites fused with contemporary items all made with fresh, locally grown ingredients. Galway Hooker is also home to Lake Norman Comedy Zone, which attracts some of the biggest names in comedy, as well as Waterford Hall, a spacious banquet facility. Plus, Galway Hooker is known to pour the coldest pints this side of Dublin. And don’t forget – at the Hooker you enter as friends and leave as family.
