Canada’s favourite plaid wearing comedian is stopping in Ottawa before heading back to Possum Lake for the last time. Comedian Steve Smith, better known as Red Green, from the beloved comedy series “The Red Green Show,” has announced a stop at the Algonquin Commons Theatre on October 16th on his ‘This Could Be It!’ fall tour.
When he originally named the tour, Steve Smith says he didn’t know if he would do another or not, but this tour has been the best he’s had and he doesn’t think he’ll be able to top it. The tour saw sell-out success in the U.S. over the summer. “We keep getting new folks, that’s been great,” he says. When asked if he’s humbled by the support of his fans, young and old, he says, “I find life humbling. I’m very grateful. I don’t know if I’d call myself humbled, but I know gratitude when I feel it.”
“The Red Green Show” first aired in January 1991. Since then Steve Smith has grown into a Canadian icon, recognized across generations for his hilarious and relatable insight into men, marriage, life and escaping the pressures of urban sprawl at the “Lodge.”
This October his 90-minute, one-man show will stay true to those roots and feature handyman projects, advice to married guys and teenage boys, tips on getting old and an apology to the world on behalf of all baby boomers as Red Green says good-bye to his loyal fans.
