About Rick Mercer
Rick Mercer’s top-rated, award-winning CBC show, The Rick Mercer Report—which routinely tramples even its American competitors in the ratings—features his trademark rants, hilarious (and informative) fake newscasts, commercial parodies, and comic encounters with famous Canadians, talking about Canada. More than any other comedian (or journalist for that matter), he talks to Canadian newsmakers with a refreshing candor, and is uniquely able to spin topical hilarity from the people and the things deeply embedded in the national consciousness. The Rick Mercer Report is currently in its tenth season.
Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Mercer has won over 25 Gemini Awards for his top-rated CBC series’ The Rick Mercer Report, Made in Canada, and This Hour has 22 Minutes. Mercer also starred in Rick Mercer’s Talking to Americans, which was watched by millions, attracted attention across North America, and remains the highest-rated comedy special in Canadian history.
Mercer is the author of three national bestsellers, Streeters, The Rick Mercer Report: The Book, and 2012’s A Nation Worth Ranting About. Mercer will co-write the screenplay for High Alert, a political satire based on the 1966 Norman Jewison movie, The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming.
