Mercer, who first launched his career in 1993, is a well-renowned comedian, TV personality, author, and Canada’s top political satirist, best known for the Canadian Screen Award winning series Rick Mercer Report

Rick’s weekly helping of topical satire, funny takes on the week’s top stories, Canada wide adventures, and famous rants have made this show a perennial audience favourite.
