Rant King Rick Mercer's Best Featured in New Book

Political funny man and beloved Canadian ranter Rick Mercer is not only celebrating his tenth season of The Rick Mercer Report, but his sophomore literary accomplishment with the release of his new book Rick Mercer: A Nation Worth Ranting About.


The book - a compilation of the best of Rick's trademark rants from the show's most recent seasons, as well as three all new essays - chronicles human foolishness (primarily with politicians as the target) and tough subject matter as only Rick's passionate and spot-on rants could. The best of the best serves to unveil things we Canadians perhaps didn't know about ourselves through a mixture of information, humour and inspiration - Rick's rants' special formula.

After celebrating the release of the book with thousands of friends and fans, Rick took a seat in the red chair and spoke with George Stroumboulopoulos about his book. Take a look:

The king of rants also stopped by studio Q to speak with Jian Ghomeshi. Take a listen:
