He hasn't even reached the "Big Four-O" yet, but comedian Jack Gallagher is already grappling with encroaching middle age. "Men reach their sexual peak at 19," he says. "I'm 38. You know what that means? That means that naps are just about as important as sex at this point. I'm not saying I don't like sex. It's just that when naps and sex are presented in the same sentence, it can be a tough call to make." That's not the only sign of middle age the prematurely graying comic has observed.

For someone with no answers, no candy bar named after him and no clue about life, Jack Gallagher is doing OK for himself.
