Every comic can tell a joke, but Steve Patterson is a triple threat of funny, combining skills as a stand-up comedian with over 15 years of touring experience, a successful radio and tv host and a published humour writer.
As host of CBC Radio One’s wildly successful “The Debaters” since 2007 Patterson has become a household name, with more than 700,000 weekly listeners. In 2010, steady accolades for his work on that show earned him a third invitation to perform on one of Just For Laughs’ prestigious televised galas, hosted by Steve Martin. Considered to be the highlight of the show by the audience and critics alike, Patterson’s performance prompted the legendary Martin himself to quip, “If I’d known he was going to be THAT good, I would have cancelled him.”
Patterson began his full-time comedy career in 1997, shortly after ending his full-time career as a copywriter when he wrote an ad for an amusement park that his boss found a little “too amusing.” Leaving his desk job behind, he opted for the national and international stage. In addition to playing every major city in Canada (and most of the minor ones) he has also headlined in Ireland, Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates leaving audiences everywhere united in their praise.
