Mr. D (HD) (DV)
MR. D is a half-hour weekly comedy that explores life in private school. Based on the stand-up comedy act of Gerry Dee, a former private school teacher for nine years, MR. D tells the story of an under-qualified teacher trying to fake his way in a teaching job, just as he fakes his way through life.

And what a gig he has landed: Mr. D scores a position at Xavier Academy, a prestigious and expensive private school in a small North American city for students in grades 5-12. Although thrilled to be teaching for a career, Gerry finds himself teaching not in his area of expertise - gym - but in the social studies department.
How will Gerry interact with the staff and students at this high-status school? How will he teach a subject he knows nothing about? Easy: in Gerry's mind, he knows a little bit about everything - and what he doesn't know, he'll keep talking about until it sounds like he does.
Gerry Dee, a regular at Just for Laughs and a contestant on Last Comic Standing, headlines MR. D. Starring alongside Gerry Dee is Jonathan Torrens, Lauren Hammersley, Booth Savage, Bette McDonald, Naomi Snieckus, Darrin Rose, Mark Little and Wes Williams.
