Set way up north at the infamous Possum Lodge, The Red Green Show is a hilarious insight into men, their dreams, and their obsessions. It's a show for anyone who thinks God created man to give the rest of the world something to laugh at!
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.
Regular segments include "Handyman's Corner," which highlights Red's philosophy: "If women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy." Using the handyman's secret weapon "duct tape," Red demonstrates innovative and useful construction tips on everything from turning a refrigerator into a dishwasher, to converting a hot water tank into a mini-submarine.
