The Debaters LIVE at Your Event

Bring The Debaters LIVE to your next corporate or private event for a hilarious, customized show built to suit your needs. Two hilarious comedians will join host Steve Patterson for a night of clean, interactive comedy.

Here’s what Marty Hornstein from the JFSC had to say about a recent show: “Many people are still raving about our evening with The Debaters LIVE. The biggest complaints that I had were from people with sore cheeks and stomachs from laughing so hard. Steve, Kate and David were fabulous, their humour was current and relevant and… they really know how to entertain. The time flew by. The Debaters Live are Awesome!”

Best known to hundreds of thousands of comedy fans as the host of The Debaters on CBC Radio One/CBC podcasts since 2007 and The Debaters Live, which has delighted corporate and sold out theatre audiences nationwide since 2012, there is no debate that Steve Patterson is North America’s funniest and least moderate debate moderator. As a solo comedian he’s not too shabby either. With over two decades of headlining experience all across Canada and all around the world, Patterson packs a well-travelled, well-honed delivery with relentless research to create one of a kind and up to the moment shows wherever he performs. Twice named Canada’s Best Male Stand-Up at the Canadian Comedy Awards, Steve has also taken his award-winning humour to the literary world with The Book of Letters I Didn’t Know Where to Send. Described by best-selling author Terry Fallis as “hilarious, thought provoking and more often than not, written on the bedrock of truth,” Steve’s debut into the literary world was so well received, he has now been commissioned by Penguin Random House to publish another book, due out in 2021. Patterson is also a seasoned interviewer and producer, with 10 seasons of experience on CBC’s Short Film Faceoff and his passion project The Smartass-ociates, which pairs top comedians with expert guests to make ‘smart people funnier and funny people smarter.’ Most importantly though, Patterson is comedian on-call to his wife Nancy, his young daughter Scarlett and their newest addition Norah, who arrived in the summer of 2019. So whether your audience is a theatre full of savvy comedy fans, a boardroom full of tough-to-entertain executives, or one energetic little girl with her mom carrying a baby, Steve Patterson is up for the challenge. Unless he’s asleep.
