Master of duct tape returns

Red Green brings his "How to Do Everything (From the Man who should know" tour to Vernon on Sept. 23

He’s back! Red Green, North America’s champion of underachieving men everywhere, returns to the stage with a brand new one-man show “How To Do Everything (From the Man who should know).”

Beginning Sept. 15, the “How To Do Everything Tour” will go from coast to coast in Canada, before heading south of the 49th in the spring of 2014.

Red Green (aka Steve Smith) plays the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre Sept. 23.

The tour follows his successful run in 2011 and 2012 in Canada and the U.S., where he played to sold-out houses and rave reviews.

This fall will also see the release of  Red Green’s Beginner’s Guide To Women (For Men Who Don’t Read Instructions).

Steve Smith is a Canadian actor, author and comedian. Born in Toronto, Smith studied engineering at the University of Waterloo and after a variety of jobs, in 1979 he began to produce, write and star in a sketch comedy series along with his wife Morag, called Smith and Smith.

In the mid-’80s, he created a family sitcom called Me and Max, before returning to sketch comedy with The Comedy Mill, which ran for four years.  Smith also wrote for several television shows including three episodes of CBS’ Top Cops series.

In 1991 Smith starred in The New Red Green Show; 300 episodes of the series were produced as well as one full-length movie, Duct Tape Forever, in 2002.
