Tickets will range in price from $46 – $59.

“It could be its own heritage minute,” the comedian joked.

It’s not Mercer’s first time immersing himself in Saskatchewan culture; he joined the Roughriders in a practice for a segment on his show in 2010.

He donned a red jersey which signified to the players not to hit him and joined fans for a game, a watermelon on his head and all.
