“This Could Be It, Canada!” Comedian Red Green Sets Dates in Southern Alberta
POSSUM LAKE, Ontario — Comedian Steve Smith, better known as Red Green, from the beloved Gemini Award-winning comedy series The Red Green Show, has announced the addition of several new dates for his 'This Could Be It!' fall tour throughout Canada, with more shows to be announced. Kicking off September 19 in Grand Prairie, Alberta, Red Green embarks on his final journey throughout his homeland, with a coast-to-coast trek that will culminate on October 30th at the Georgian Theatre in Barrie, Ontario.
"Lodge Meetings" are scheduled for Sept. 22nd in Medicine Hat, Sept. 23-24 in Lethbridge, and in Calgary on Oct. 3rd.
Fans of all ages flocked to the various performance halls and theaters to take part in the final 'Lodge Meetings' throughout the U.S. With the majority of these meetings selling out, the hapless handyman has once again instilled countless laughs upon the smiling faces of his loyal fans, as he bids his final farewell.
"The ticket sales have been great, but the biggest impact is the chance to say goodbye to my friends face-to-face, and to hear the heart-warming stories of how this silly little show has helped people's lives," Smith accounted. "That's the part I'll remember forever."
The master of misadventure continues his latest one man road show. It features some brand new 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. Special contributions from other cast members, talking animals, and a final wish from Red Green to all of his loyal fans, are also on the meeting agenda.
The Red Green Show is a unique half-hour comedy series targeted at family audiences, with the purpose of entertaining and providing an escape from the pressures of urban living.
Set way up north at the infamous Possum Lodge, The Red Green Show is a hilarious insight into men, their dreams, and their obsessions. Steve Smith plays the acerbic, dry-witted Red Green, lodge leader and host of the show that takes special aim at the yet unexplored humorous side of the male ego and other inflatables.
Pat McKenna plays Harold, Red's techno-geek nephew, and Rick Green (no relation to Red) is the klutzy naturalist Bill. Each week they pass the time bonding, adventuring, entrepreneuring and basically keeping the eight-year-old in them alive and well.
"I know it's called the 'This Could Be It' tour, but if I was a betting man, I'd put my money on 'This Is Definitely It,'" said Smith.
"I'd like to also thank my fans, the media, and anyone who has supported me along the way," said Smith. "I couldn't do any of this without you!"
