Hol­land Col­lege stu­dent union host­ing tele­vi­sion star Gerry Dee in Sum­mer­side on Fri­day

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

Hol­land Col­lege host­ing Gerry Dee show Fri­day.

Hol­land Col­lege Stu­dent Union is bring­ing one of Canada’s fore­most and fun­ni­est co­me­di­ans to the Har­bourfront Theatre in Sum­mer­side Fri­day, Jan. 22, for his only show on the Is­land this year.

Dee is the cre­ator, writer, and star of the smash hit CBC TV com­edy se­ries Mr. D, and was fea­tured in The Score’s reg­u­lar seg­ment, Gerry Dee: Sports Reporter. His sig­na­ture sto­ries about the ab­sur­di­ties of life at the front of the class­room and grow­ing up the son of Scot­tishim­mi­grant par­ents have be­come fa­mous to his fans

Stu­dent union pres­i­dent David Camp­bell says the show will likely sell out quickly.

“When Gerry Dee was in Char­lot­te­town two years ago, the show sold out in two days at $90 a ticket, so we an­tic­i­pate a good up­take from both stu­dents and the pub­lic,” he says.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Tick­ets are $70 for the gen­eral pub­lic. They can be pur­chased at the Har­bourfront Theatre box of­fice, tel: 1-888-311-9090 or on­line at www.har­bourfrontthe­atre.com.
