TORONTO — Shopbrain, the AI-powered shopping assistant that helps online users find the best price in seconds wherever they shop, today launched a nationwide contest with Canadian comedian and TV personality Gerry Dee. Gerry Dee, who is best known for his sitcom “Mr. D” and his participation on “Last Comic Standing,” began his “20 Years of Stand-Up” comedy tour on Friday, March 1.
Shopbrain is presenting his tour and launching a nationwide contest offering fans a chance to win a trip to Toronto to see Gerry Dee Live and meet him after the show on May 24. The winner will also receive two roundtrip tickets to Toronto, a two-night hotel stay, and a framed copy of the final Mr. D script signed by Gerry.
“We are proud to be partnering with one of the Canada’s most well known and loved comedians and proud that he has invested in our business. At Shopbrain, we believe price transparency is critical for a better shopping experience and Gerry sees much opportunity for growth in this business,” said James Cunningham, CEO and co-founder of Shopbrain. “We are thrilled to be supporting his tour by offering this exciting contest to give Gerry’s fans across the nation an opportunity to a VIP experience.”
“For me, there’s no better concept to get behind than helping consumers find the best price while shopping online. This was an easy idea to get behind, and my decision to invest in the company was as simple as the product is to use. Now, I’m grateful for Shopbrain’s returned support as we launch this new contest to engage with my fans on my new tour,” said comedian and actor Gerry Dee.
