Canadian Comedian Set to Perform in Early May
Coming To Kitchener: Rick Mercer
Fresh off his top-rated, award-winning CBC Show, The Rick Mercer Report, “Canada’s Unofficial Opposition” will make Kitchener his first stop on a nation-wide tour. THEMUSEUM is thrilled to host “An Evening with Rick Mercer” on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at Bingemans. This fundraiser celebrates Mercer’s storied 15-year TV series as well as THEMUSEUM’s 15th anniversary (Coincidence? We think not!).
“We couldn’t imagine a better way to commemorate our anniversary than to welcome Rick to the community,” said David Marskell, CEO, THEMUSEUM. “We had the opportunity to work with him on the Searching for Tom | Man, Myths and Masterworks exhibition in 2011, which was a brilliant experience.” Watch the video clip here.
Tickets will go on sale Monday, February 12 at 10:00 AM for Members of THEMUSEUM and on sale Wednesday, February 14 at 10:00 AM to the general public. There will also be meet-and-greet opportunities for VIP ticket holders. To become a Member, please click here. Ticket information is available here.
An Evening with Rick Mercer is generously sponsored by BMO and KPMG.
