Publisher's Summary

Number One National Best Seller

Longlisted for the 2019 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour

Canada's pre-eminent satirical commentator brings down the curtain on his hugely successful show in this instant number one national best seller.

Rick Mercer can always be relied on to provoke a strong reaction - but what he said one fall day in 2017 truly shocked the nation. In a rant posted on social media, the great Canadian satirist announced loud and clear that the current, 15th season of the Rick Mercer Report - the nation's best-watched and best-loved comedy show - would be the last. After more than 250 episodes, 250 rants and countless miles spent travelling the length and breadth of Canada to do everything from bungee jumping with Rick Hansen to whale watching with Measha Brueggergosman, it was time to move on. What he will do next is still unknown, and Canada eagerly awaits future developments. But meanwhile, we have this book to keep us going.

This volume brings together never-before-published rants from the last five seasons of the show, plus a selection of the very best rants from earlier years. And throughout the book, in a series of brilliant new essays, Rick shares his hilarious, moving and at times hair-raising memories from the past 15 years. Remember when he and Jann Arden traveled by helicopter to a terrifying bat cave in a mountain? No - because that trip went so horribly wrong it never made it to the screen. Pierre Berton - what was really in that joint he rolled? (It wasn't oregano.) What catastrophe took place in Norman Jewison's bathroom? And can the show still go on when your director in charge is delirious from an allergic reaction? (Yes.) All this and more is revealed by Rick in some of his sharpest and funniest writing yet.

National Treasure

Rick Mercer is a national treasure, you won’t find a more patriotic Canadian. His book takes us back through the years and shows us that as things change they stay the same. The tales of Canadian adventures by Rick and friends is shared in Rick’s signature style, his rants are on point and almost poetic. Absolute gold

Rick!

Loved it. Glad I got this as an audio book instead of print. No one can deliver a rant quite like Rick.

Rick should be Prime Minister!

Although I don’t blame him if he doesn’t want the job. He sees the problems with this country and I believe he could fix them!

Thank you Rick for always saying it like it is and never sugar coating it!

Time well Spent

I loved listening to Rick Mercer read his Final Report. I hope he publishes another, maybe called After the Final Report where he keeps us up to date with his rants. Thank you Rick Mercer for spending time talking to me.

The Final Report

If you're a fan of Rick Mercer, or political satire in general, you'll love his collection of Rants from over the years. I'm sure the book version is great, but hearing Rick himself reading out his rants with passion and comedic timing is hilarious!
