Teaching: Its Harder Than It Looks by Gerry DeeGerry Dee is a rising comic star whose humour has been compared to Bill Cosbys. He spent ten years working as a teacher and survived (barely) to tell his tales. Told from the honest point-of-view of a not-so-good, often-very-bad public school teacher--the kind who teaches hungover (and lies about it), loses his students exams (and lies about it), and stages an impromptu baseball game in the middle of history class just to kill some time, Teaching: Its Harder Than It Looks is Mr. D at his best.
This book collects Gerrys funniest anecdotes about teaching, about students and about their parents. As Gerrys ode to school life, its sure to bring back a memory or two, whether you were the teachers pet or the class clown. Throughout, he offers tongue-in-cheek Teacher Tips and Tricks, uncomfortable notes to parents, awkward report cards and all manner of memorabilia of school days.
Hes extremely funny, on the page as well as in person, and hes the kind of personality who will reach out beyond his own core comedy audience to a broad demographic of educators, parents and students who relate to his humour and experiences.

Like why some cities are "stinkers" while others, like St. Catharines, routinely greet him with sell-outs. Catharines certainly surprised us — this is the third show now in a year, which is rare for me.

Kinda sad, at the end of the day. There are a lot of memories and a lot of friendships. TM: Did you just feel like it was time to bring it to a close?
