The Debaters Live! to perform in Truro in support of the Colchester East Hants Hospice Society

For immediate release

Truro, NS – The Colchester East Hants Hospice Society is pleased to announce that The Debaters Live! With Steve Patterson will be performing at You’ll Die Laughing 2016. The event will take place on Thursday, May 5th at 7:30pm at the Cobequid Education Centre (CEC), 34 Lorne Street, in Truro, NS. The night will include a pre-event reception beginning at 6:00pm. Doors to the auditorium will open at 7:00.

Now in its 9th 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 award winning comedian 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 winner.

The Debaters Live! is a total of 60-70 minutes. 30 minutes of stand-up (10 from each of the three comedians) a hard-hitting 35 minute debate! Three comedians in one night!

The host to 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.” Following that performance, Patterson was name Best Male Stand-up Comedian at the 2011 and 2013 Canadian Comedy awards and most recently has been nominated for the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards as Host on HGTV’s “I Wrecked My House”. If you missed his nationally toured theatre show entitled “This is Not Debatable”, it is available on itunes but Steve will be back on stage with a brand new 90 minute show expressing all the opinions he doesn’t get to express as the moderator of The Debaters in “I Laugh Therefore I Think”.

Although Father's Day is often portrayed as a happy day full of gratitude, we know that it can also bring feelings of sadness and grief for many of us. For those who find Father's Day emotionally difficult, here is a list of coping tips to help support you in your grief. Remember that it's okay to grieve for many reasons on this day – Those of us who are children that have lost fathers and fathers who have lost children. Those of us who have lost fathers or children due to incarceration, foster care, or estrangement. Those of us who cannot be with our fathers or children due to living far away or outside of our region.We urge you to spend the day in a way that feels right to you.If you need further support, please reach out to us at questions@cehhospice.org or 902-893-3265 ...
