Gerry Dee

Gerard ADHD Entertainment Inc. presents actor and comedian Gerry Dee live on stage at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Though most familiar as the star, creator, and one of the principle writers for CBC's hit sitcom Mr. D, it is in stand-up comedy where Gerry Dee first hit his mark. Dee, who was a private school teacher for nine years before giving it up for comedy, became the first Canadian in 27 years to win the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, and was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, the highest finish by a Canadian in the history of the show.

 

Based on Gerry Dee’s real-life experiences as a high school teacher, CBC’s Mr. D follows the misadventures of schoolteacher Gerry Duncan, nicknamed Mr. D, as he struggles to keep one step ahead of his students at the prestigious private school, Xavier Academy. Debuting in January 2012 to 1.23 million viewers, the program was the highest rated scripted show premiere for the network in 7 years. Season 6 premiered on CBC in fall of 2016.

Gerry Dee is one of Canada’s busiest comedic talents.  Gerry is the Winner of the 2013 Canadian Screen Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Comedic Role for his work on "Mr.D".  Gerry's book "Teaching: It's Harder Than It Looks" was a National Bestseller.

Gerry will certainly provide you with a night of laughter you will never forget.
