Hilarity in Halifax

Steve Patterson is probably best known for his role as the host of the CBC show The Debaters. Or possibly as Canada’s best male stand-up comedian (as chosen in the Canadian Comedy Awards in 2011).

“On The Debaters I’m essentially a referee for the other comics. I don’t want to step on their material so I kind of have to hold back,” says Patterson. “With this show, they’re not there so I get to talk about what I want to say.” And Patterson is a seasoned performer, after touring across the English-speaking world, he hosted the 2011 Just For Laughs comedy tour. Patterson is looking forward to having a live audience again.

“There’s really no comparison for those who have seen TV and coming to a live show,” says Patterson. “It allows me to get a better relationship with the audience instead of a one-night stand.”

The show features all new original material along with a few musical moments—when Patterson breaks into song. Patterson also promises a handful of letters to inanimate objects who deserve a talking to. “I’m looking forward to really getting to talk about what I actually care about and I want to make it funny,” says Patterson.

Steve Patterson performs Friday, May 10 at the Rebecca Cohn, 6101 University Avenue, 7:30pm, $42.50
