Rick Mercer

Rick Mercer chronicles, satirizes, and ultimately celebrates all that is great and irreverent about this country. A #1 bestselling author, Governor General’s Award-winner for Lifetime Artistic Achievement, and “Canada’s Unofficial Opposition,” Mercer is our most popular comic; a political satirist who knows exactly what matters to regular Canadians and what makes them laugh.
Rick Mercer’s top-rated, award-winning CBC show, The Rick Mercer Report, routinely trampled even its American competitors in the ratings. The show featured Mercer’s trademark rants, satirical 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 candour, and is uniquely able to spin topical hilarity from the people and the things deeply embedded in the national consciousness.

His latest book, Rick Mercer Final Report, a #1 Toronto Star and Globe and Mail bestseller, brings together never-before-published rants from the last five seasons of the show, plus a selection of the very best rants from earlier years. Throughout the book, in a series of brilliant new essays, Mercer shares his hilarious, moving and at times hair-raising memories from the past fifteen years.
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. In 2019, Mercer won the Governor General's Award for lifetime achievement, which recognizes artists who have made an indelible contribution to Canada and the world’s cultural life. He is an Officer of the Order of Canada.
Mercer is the author of four national bestsellers, Rick Mercer Final Report, Streeters, The Rick Mercer Report: The Book, and 2012’s A Nation Worth Ranting About.
