To me, Gerry Dee is one of the most under-rated comedians in Canada right now. Sure, he has a hit show on CBC ("Mr. D"), but even that is under-rated. It's an instant classic and right up there with The Office in both intelligence and awkard humour. The most amazing part of Gerry Dee, unlike his comedic counterparts in Louis CK and Dane Cook, is that his material is hilarious without the added bonus of swearing. Seriously. What comedian doesn't say "fuck" or "shit" while doing stand-up these days? He's a rare duck, indeed. Like all great Canadian comics, he's relocated to Los Angeles. But, be assured that Los Angeles has been kind to Canadian comedians. Just look at John Candy, Jim Carrey, Michael J. Fox, Eugene Levy, Norm Macdonald, Howie Mandel, Mike Myers, Leslie Nielsen, Russell Peters and Seth Rogan to name just a few. Good luck, Gerry!
