LOL. I remember watching him and his wife on the Smith & Smith show in the 1980s when he developed the Red Green character. The whole thing started as a spoof on a outdoorsy show host Red Fisher. The Red Green show was big for years here but I had no idea Red Green had ever made it out of Canada.

Haha, great silly fun, thanks!

I've been following Steve Smith since, well, before the World Wide Web was a thing --OMG. Fine comedian and writer. And a writer who worked the system, made people laugh, and got paid! This is a level of awesomeness that inspires.

Dang, Andrea beat me by two minutes. Two minutes! LOL

I am not sure when we started watching the Red Green Show, maybe about 1985 more or less.

Every now and then I look for his shows to be airing somewhere.

From the google search, I did it seems if is either youtube or buy the DVDs.  

Yesterday for some reason I keep say red-green Christmas not thinking of the Red Green Show then I got an idea to look for it.

I didn't even know it was a Candian show.  Thanks for helping me go down memory lane.

He did a live show in Portland Maine years ago and so, of course, we had to go see him.  What an amazing performer!
