The Rick Mercer Report isn’t even cold yet, and the man behind the rant is already back in the saddle.
Newfoundland television icon, satirist and comedian Rick Mercer is set to release his new book, aptly titled Final Report, on November 6th through Doubleday Canada.
“This Fall take me to bed wth you,” Mercer joked on social media. “I look great on a night stand. Proud to reveal the cover of my new book, Final Report.”
This volume 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. And throughout the book, in a series of brilliant new essays, Rick shares his hilarious, moving and at times hair-raising memories from the past fifteen years. Remember when he and Jann Arden travelled by helicopter to a terrifying bat cave in a mountain? No–because that trip went so horribly wrong it never made it to the screen. Pierre Berton–what was really in that joint he rolled? (It wasn’t oregano.) What catastrophe took place in Norman Jewison’s bathroom? And can the show still go on when your director in charge is delirious from an allergic reaction? (Yes.) All this and more is revealed by Rick in some of his sharpest and funniest writing yet.
You can pre-order Final Report now.
