Steve Patterson

Best known as host of The Debaters on CBC Radio One, Steve has been a professional headliner since 1997 and has taped numerous national television specials, including four Just For Laughs galas. His JFL performance in 2010 earned him a Gemini nomination and caused host Steve Martin afterwards to exclaim “If I’d have known he was going to be THAT good, I would have cancelled him.” He was named Best Male Stand-up Comedian at the 2011 and 2013 Canadian Comedy awards. Steve has nationally toured an award-nominated theatre show, This is Not Debatable, and recently released The Book of Letters I Didn’t Know Where to Send. His latest project adds budding producer to his list of accomplishments with his show The Smartass-ociates, making smart people funnier and funny people smarter, being developed for release early 2017.

Steve hosts the All Star Show and appears at the Gala of Laughs.
