The Debaters Live! On Tour
Featuring host Steve Patterson with comic all-stars Graham Clark & Jon Steinberg
The Debaters Live is the comedy stage show where comics go toe-to-toe in a battle of laughs and logic and the audience picks the winner. This special live event features host Steve Patterson and two of his favourite comics performing stand-up and two hilarious debates in the format made popular by the hit nationally broadcast Canadian radio program.
Here’s what the comics had to say about the upcoming tour:
"I've learned a lot preparing for this tour, like did you know Kamloops is actually a town and not a breakfast cereal?" JON STEINBERG
"Bringing The Debaters experience to these places makes me fully expect to be given several keys to several cities." GRAHAM CLARK
