Celebrity Speaker Rick Mercer Snags 3 Canadian Screen Awards
His candid and hilarious show features his trademark rants—the best of which have now been turned into a book, A Nation Worth Ranting About—and his satirical commercials and fake newscasts. He embraces all that is great (and not so great) about the nation on his show, which routinely beats out American programming in the ratings. Mercer has also taken home over 25 Gemini awards in his career for his work with The Rick Mercer Report, Made in Canada, and This Hour has 22 Minutes. Not only is Mercer popular in front of the camera, but he's also a hit on stage; his keynote speeches are often standing-room only. Arguably one of the most requested speakers in the country, Mercer appeals to a wide array of audiences thanks to his unique mix of comedic satire and extensive knowledge about the country. He covers the topics that matter to his audience while making them laugh in the process—a skill that will undoubtedly keep the awards rolling in.
