VIDEO: Gerry Dee Is A Better Athlete Than You, Says Gerry Dee
July 30, 2013By Leah Collins
He's awesome. Just listen to the Mr. D themesong -- or ask Gerry Dee himself. Because the last time CBC Live hung out with the comedian, Dee was all about talking himself up. (Fair enough; that's what actors are supposed to do in interviews.) But intstead of, say, boasting about creating a Canadian Comedy Award-nominated sitcom or starring in his own TV show or writing a best-selling book, Dee reminded us of another aspect of his awesomocity.
He is an all-star of physical fitness and skill. A champion, a superman, a modern Hercules in a golf tee.
(He is also joking. We think.)
"Find a better athlete at CBC than me," Dee challenged.
Or maybe we should just let it go and admit Dee's a total champ at the most important thing: comedy.
Watch the video below for more from Dee.
