2003, Cultural Studies
Presented By: Rick Mercer

The creative process is so often glamorized that in popular culture the symbol for an idea is a lightbulb. In his talk, comedian Rick Mercer sheds some real light on the creative process which, he says, is a grueling process of good fortune and overt ignorance. Watch Rick’s hilarious talk and learn how he came up with the idea for his Talking to Americans segment on CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes.
