Steve Patterson
Host | The Debaters
Canada's Best Male Stand-Up, Canadian Comedy Awards 2011

Though familiar to hundreds of thousands of Canadians as the host of CBC's comedy hit "The Debaters", it is as an international headline stand-up comedian where Steve Patterson shines brightest.

For over a decade, Patterson has performed annually in nationally televised comedy festival galas.  In 2010, while recording his third Just For Laughs gala, Patterson not only earned a Gemini nomination, but his most precious praise yet from host and comedy icon Steve Martin who proclaimed: 
"If I'd known he was going to be THAT good I would have cancelled him."

Patterson's trademark wit is well-sought after to also host productions where top-notch stand-up comedy is appreciated, including but not limited to: the Canadian Comedy Awards (2011); Industry gala nights for both the Geminis (2011) and Canadian Screen Awards (2013); and CBCs Short Film Face Off (2011 & 2012).

In 2013 Patterson continues his duties with The Debaters and is touring his first solo stand-up theatre tour across Canada expressing all the opinions he doesn't get to express as the moderator of The Debaters in his one-man show "This Is Not Debatable".
