Steve Patterson, Award-winning stand-up comedian, Thur April 19, 8pm, $39 plus fees ($45)
Host of “The Debaters”
5th favorite son of John & Kathleen Patterson
Familiar to hundreds of thousands of Canadians as the host of CBC Radio One’s hit show “The Debaters”, Steve Patterson is a veteran headline comic who has performed all across Canada and all around the world. In 2016 he added “published author” to his repertoire with the critically acclaimed “The Book of Letters I Didn’t Know Where to Send” and self-produced “The Smartass-ociates” bringing top Canadian newsmakers together with top Canadian comedians to make smart people funnier and funny people smarter.
Now, he’s embarking on a new national theatre tour to mark his 20th year in Canadian show business with his aptly titled “the 20th anniversorry tour.”
With material that covers everything from personal stories to social commentary to songs that aren’t pop hits but should be, Patterson is out to prove that, 20 years in, he’s just reaching his comedic peak. To anyone he might offend, he’s sorry in advance. And to anyone he’s offended along the way, he’s sorry in retrospect. But fans of Patterson will know, the only thing he might really have to apologize for is making people laugh too hard.
