Headlined by STEVE PATTERSON (CBC’s The Debaters)

Steve Patterson is best known to over 700,000 weekly listeners as Canada’s least moderate debate moderator on CBC’s hit show “The Debaters”, Steve Patterson is a veteran headline comic who has performed across Canada, North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia. His material is a combination of off-the-cuff and meticulously crafted, up-to-the-moment social commentary. He’s also been known to break into song.

His one-man show “This Is Not Debatable” toured theatres throughout Canada from 2012-2015 and earned him Canadian Comedy Award nominations for best one-person show and best comedy recording. He has also been named Canada’s Best Male Standup comedian at the Canadian Comedy Awards in 2011 and 2013 and can be seen hosting “Short Film Faceoff” on CBC television and “I Wrecked My House” on HGTV. But Patterson’s main goal now is making his baby girl Scarlett laugh, (which he usually does right before her bedtime…which sometimes makes his wife Nancy angry).
