Rick Mercer final report

Published 2018
Item Details

"Canada's sharpest satirical commentator brings down the curtain on our most-watched comedy show. Rick Mercer can always be relied on to provoke a strong reaction--but what he said one fall day in 2017 truly shocked the nation. In a rant posted on social media, the great Canadian satirist announced loud and clear that the current, 15th season of the Rick Mercer Report--the nation's best-watched and best-loved comedy show--would be the last. After more than 250 episodes, 250 rants and countless miles spent travelling the length and breadth of Canada to do everything from bungee jumping with Rick Hansen to whale-watching with Measha Brueggergosman, it was time to move on. What he will do next is still unknown, and Canada eagerly awaits future developments. But meanwhile, we have this book to keep us going. The new volume collects together rants from the later years of RMR, right up to the final episode. It also includes highlights from throughout the entire run of RMR, including choice moments from Rick's travels and encounters, and the very best of the early rants. There will be photographs throughout. And in a brilliant bonus, Rick has written a touching and frequently hilarious memoir of what it has been like to helm the nation's favourite comedy show. (Spoiler alert: It was the best job in the world.)"-- Provided by publisher.
