CBC’s The Debaters
Sold Out!

Presented by: Centrepointe Theatres
Centrepointe Theatre
February 11 - 12, 2014

Now in its seventh season on CBC Radio One, The Debaters is the hit show where comics go toe to toe in a battle of laughs and logic.  Hosted by international headliner and Canada’s Best Male Standup of 2011, Steve Patterson, The Debaters is a combustible mix of sharply crafted comedic rants and hilarious adlibs.  The engaging format is part stand-up, part quiz show and part comedy competition with the live audience picking the winners. 
 

This event will be taped for radio.
