Monday November 12, 2012 Gerry Dee
On Monday, the hilarious Gerry Dee is in the red chair. You know him as a clueless teacher on CBC's 'Mr. D' - and he came by the character honestly. In his new book, 'Teaching: It's Harder Than It Looks,' and his 'Life After Teaching' comedy tour, Gerry gets into his own experiences at the front of the classroom. We'll find out more about his funny but true life in school. Plus, our comedy panel features comedian Ron Sparks. Don't miss it.
Tuesday November 13, 2012 Javier Bardem
Tuesday, Hollywood superstar Javier Bardem is in the red chair. He'll talk about his passion for acting, but also another project that is very close to his heart: the documentary 'Sons of the Clouds: The Last Colony,' the story of the people of the Western Sahara, the Sahrawi, who are caught in a political standoff. And our panel features stand-up comedian and actor Chris Gibbs.
Wednesday November 14, 2012 Billy Ray Cyrus
Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus is in the red chair Wednesday. He became an international mega-star with the success of 'Achy Breaky Heart' - but the backlash was intense. And now he's got a daughter who's even more famous, and who has been embroiled in a string of tabloid controversies. We'll find out how his faith has helped him endure, and informed his new album, 'Change My Mind.' And our comedy panel will be graced by comic and writer Kristeen von Hagen.
Thursday November 15, 2012 Jason Priestley and Vicki Lawrence
There are two great guests in the red chair on Thursday: Jason Priestley found fame as Brandon Walsh on 90210. Since then, he's become an accomplished director, and he's back on a regular series with 'Call Me Fitz,' now in its third season on HBO Canada. His character is no Brandon, though: he's one of the rudest, crudest anti-heroes on TV. And Vicki Lawrence, another well-known TV actor, is also in the red chair. Vicki came to fame on 'The Carol Burnett Show' and its spin-off 'Mama's Family.' She also had a successful recording career and a talk show. Now Vicki's touring theatres with her own stage show: 'Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two Woman Show.' And Ugandan standup comedian Arthur Simeon will join our comedy panel.
