'It’s that time of winter when we all need a laugh'

Host of CBC’s The Debaters, Steve Patterson

This winter, The Debaters Live! will be heading to Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville for a show featuring comics going toe-to-toe in a battle of laughs and logic where the audience gets to pick the winner.

On February 3rd, Steve Patterson and two top Canadian comics, Arthur Simeon and Erica Sigurdson, will put on a special night of stand-up comedy complete with a debate specially created for the Deerhurst audience.

“Hosting a live comedy show in February has become a tradition at Deerhurst and we’re very excited to host The Debaters Live this year,” explains Jesse Hamilton, general manager. “It’s that time of winter when we all need a laugh, and also the perfect opportunity for couples to take a break just for themselves before the busy Family Day weekend.” 

Familiar to hundreds of thousands of loyal Canadian fans as host of CBC’s The Debaters, Steve Patterson has been a professional headliner since 1997 and has taped numerous national television specials in the past decade including four Just For Laughs galas. His performance in 2010 earned him a Gemini nomination and caused host Steve Martin afterwards to exclaim, “If I’d have known he was going to be THAT good, I would have cancelled him.”

Priced from $174.50 per person based on double occupancy, The Debaters Live! weekend package at Deerhurst Resort includes Saturday accommodation, a three-course dinner with the comedy show and access to the resort’s new lakeside skating trail, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, indoor pool, hot tub and more. A nightly resort fee and tax are extra.

For people not requiring accommodation, The Debaters Live! comedy show and dinner tickets are also available for $99.20 per person.
