Beloved Comedian Rick Mercer Reflects on His Career in New Memoir
In Talking to Canadians, Rick Mercer finally turns the spotlight on himself—revealing how he went from “highly unpromising schoolboy” and aspiring actor, to one of the nation’s most popular comedians and political satirists.
In turns hilarious and deeply moving, Rick Mercer’s memoir offers a glimpse into both his youth and his rise to TV fame, written in his usual and widely cherished anecdotal style. Fans will also be treated to a wealth of behind-the-scenes revelations about the origins and making of This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Made in Canada, and Talking to Americans.
Margaret Atwood, the legendary author of The Handmaid’s Tale, offers her praise for this entertaining and action-packed chronicle of Mercer’s life. She writes, “Talking to Canadians [is a] funny, pitfall-strewn, no-holds-barred memoir from the ranting TV uproarist, edge-walker, envelope-pusher and pot-stirrer.”
