I haven’t actually seen an episode of the CBC sitcom that Gerry Dee (pictured) stars in called Mr. D about a teacher with competency issues, but some of the adverts have been kind of funny (like the one where he’s playing hoops in the gym while the kids are trying to write final exams.)

Tonight, Dee’s in town to do a stand-up show at Conexus Arts Centre at 8 p.m. (tickets $41-$46) where, among other things, he’ll crack jokes about the years he spent working as a teacher. To give you a taste, here’s a three-minute bit from last year where Dee riffs on the profession.
