Now in its 13th 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 Steve Patterson, international headliner and two-time winner of Canada's Best Male Stand-Up, 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.
Each show features stand-up comedy, six comedians and three of its own brand new debates. This event will be taped for radio.
The Debaters is proud to be apart of this year's YYComedy Festival. For tickets to other events, visit www.yycomedy.ca

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen 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.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
