The comic TV actor known to millions in the U.S. and Canada as the namesake of “The Red Green Show” plans to make several appearances in Iowa this month.
In his trademark flannel shirt and red and green suspenders, Steve Smith will visit Cedar Rapids and Des Moines November 10th for special screenings of his film “Duct Tape Forever,” showing that same day in the Quad Cities and Dubuque.
Smith says the movie “took eight years to finance, five weeks to shoot and almost an hour to write.” The movie and the P-B-S show follows the antics of a quirky group of men at a fictional Canadian fishing lodge.
Smith says “Red Green” has a huge following, especially in Iowa which he attributes to his show being rather corny and Iowa being the world’s corn capitol. Smith plans another appearance in Dubuque November 30th to raise money for a hospital outreach program through the Festival of Trees.
