Laughter is the best medicine, due to its propensity to flood the sinuses with chicken soup. Chuckle yourself to health with today's Groupon: for $23, you get a general-admission ticket (a $47.45 value) to Gerry Dee's stand-up comedy performance at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival on Saturday, April 2 at 8 p.m. at Burton Cummings Theatre for the Performing Arts.
Comic Gerry Dee mines his past and the foibles of contemporary life for funny-bone-tickling observations that garnered him the prize for Best Male Stand-Up at the 2008 Canadian Comedy Awards. The Last Comic Standing finalist started his career as a high-school physical-education and history teacher, sowing a bountiful harvest of anecdotes and rendering Dee impervious to the test-answer mining techniques of adolescents. Soon to star in his own upcoming CBC sitcom, Dee lobs his offbeat aperçus and amiable but unsentimental reminiscences as part of the annual Winnipeg Comedy Festival.
