Read full description of the books Rick Mercer Report: The Paperback Book:Rick Mercer Report: The Book was the publishing phenom of 2007, hogging the top of the bestseller lists. Prime ministers’ memoirs came and went, and RMR outstayed them all. And now it’s back — bigger and better and funnier than ever.
Rick Mercer Report: The Paperback Book is an updated, expanded remix of its bestselling predecessor, containing 10,000 words of new material from the show’s fifth season.
Rick’s celebrated rants are some of the sharpest political commentary to be found anywhere in the country’s media, and certainly the funniest. They are featured here, along with other moments from the show — including encounters with Conrad Black, Jean Chrétien, and Anne Murray — and many additional pieces, some of which first appeared on his website. Because when he’s not jumping into a lake with David Suzuki or Bob Rae, or helping the leader of the Green Party kill a tree, Rick Mercer likes to relax by blogging. From Kabul, say. Or the bearpit of a leadership convention.
Rick Mercer Report: The Paperback Book will help you make sense of five extraordinary years in the life of Canada — or at least laugh despite them.
Read information about the authorWhatever's making headlines in this country [Canada]; you can be sure Rick Mercer has something to say about it.
So, where did Rick get his start? Born and raised on The Rock - St. John's, Newfoundland, Rick grew up with a love of performing. As a teenager, he co-founded a comedy troupe called 'Corey and Wade's Playhouse.' And a couple of years later, dropped out of high school to join a clown troupe. By 1990, he was discovered by producer Gerald Lunz. Together, they created Rick's first one-man play, called 'Show Me the Button, I'll Push It.' They've been working together ever since.
A short time later, Rick joined Mary Walsh, Cathy Jones and Greg Thomey in launching 'This Hour Has 22 Minutes.' '22 Minutes' made Rick famous. But Rick's 2001 comedy special 'Talking to Americans' made him a superstar. The show drew 2-point-7 million viewers, and convinced the CBC he could carry his very own show.
'The Mercer Report' is now mixing parody and politics like no one else in Canada.
