Whenever he’s not on TV jumping out of airplanes, ranting down an alleyway, or bamboozling American presidents, Rick Mercer is writing. This time out, the story he’s telling is his own. And it is wild.
Having created some of the most beloved and most-watched Canadian TV in history with shows like This Hour Has 22 Minutes and The Rick Mercer Report, Mercer set to work on writing a best-selling memoir, Talking to Canadians.
This week, he’ll be talking to Albertans. On Tuesday evening, he’ll meet up with Jann Arden for an Imagine On Air event, presented by Wordfest.
On Monday, December 6, 2021, Rick joined us on CKUA to preview the Wordfest session, reflect on his wild ‘n’ woolly history, and tell us how he owes it all to punk rock and to some “hippies in a van”.
