Martha Cohen Theatre
The show is being taped for radio.
Now in its eighth 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.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons between the Jack Singer Concert Hall and the Max Bell Theatre is the intimate 386-seat Martha Cohen Theatre.
Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Named after Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
Capacity: 398 - 412 (varies depending on stage configuration)
