Saturday May 5th, 2018, 7:30 PM at the The Capitol Centre, North Bay

Rick Mercer is offering an epic new keynote that will make you appreciate, as never before, this unique nation we all call home. It’s a heart-soaring and laugh-out-loud funny affair, and a perfect way to celebrate what our great country has to offer.

Few people know Canada like Rick Mercer knows Canada. Whether prodding at our institutions, celebrating our unsung heroes, or illuminating everything wonderful and weird about our country, Mercer is a galvanizing speaker. He’s our fiercest critic, our sharpest mind, and our most hilarious comic. This is a one-time talk that gathers together all his—and our— strengths. It is a talk that connects to the past, evaluates our present, and looks forward, hopefully, into the future.

Mercer was previously in North Bay on April 27, 2013. He also attending the annual Powassan Maple Syrup festival earlier that day and made local headlines. His sold-out show that year, A Nation Worth Ranting About: Rick Mercer Report From Across Canada and his final season are both reason the Capitol Centre felt it was time to bring him back.
