Jerry C. Jaffe
Husband. Father. Teacher. Jerry has traveled the world, teaching at different universities while directing plays on three continents. He brings his wry and ironic sense of humour to his world-weary experience on everything from parenting to physics. He combines observational humour about marriage with nerd comedy about Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons. With his PhD in comedy, Jerry raises the IQ of audiences everywhere he goes.
