A Nation Worth Ranting about (Paperback)
Expanded and Updated and More Furiously Funny Than Ever
--Rick Mercer, from his introduction
About the Author
RICK MERCER is Canada's sharpest and funniest political satirist. He first came to fame with Show Me the Button I'll Push It, or Charles Lych Must Die, a one-man show that toured across Canada. He co-created and was a resident performer on CBC's This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and is now the host of The Rick Mercer Report, the CBC's highest-rated comedy show. He is from St. John's, Newfoundland. The author lives in Toronto, Ontario.
“A self-described ‘rantaholic,’ Rick Mercer is our country’s best-known and most-loved satirist. . . . The use of surprise or the unexpected is a trademark of Mercer’s humour. . . . But once again, beneath his humour, Mercer is seething. . . . You can’t read Mercer’s rants without appreciating that we live in a society where ranting — whether it’s about our government, attitudes toward sexuality, or escalators — is possible. And that, kids, is a good thing.”
