Gerry Dee is a Canadian stand-up comedian. Prior to his comic career, he was a physical education teacher and hockey coach at De La Salle College (Toronto) "Oaklands", a private co-ed high school in Toronto. He also attended and graduated from De La Salle in high school.

Canadian comedian Gerry Dee has turned his former life as a teacher into a sitcom about a teacher, and the odd thing is, it was his plan all along.

“It always was my approach when I started in standup, from day one, to take my life as a teacher and make it into a sitcom,” said Dee

“When people ask me what the target demographic is, I say, ‘Everybody,’ ” Dee said. “I found in my standup that when I started talking about, say, being in Grade 6, we all had so many memories and people really respond to it.

“There are some tough times, of course. Kids get bullied, I was bullied. But there were a lot of good things, too, and I think that’s what people will warm up to.” Learning to laugh about your past can really help.

“We’re pushing some envelopes. Some people are going to complain about some of the things we do on this show. But that to me is fine. They’re really letting us try something different.”
