The Red Green Show Announces 'This Could Be It' Tour for 2019, Joins Heartland's Programming Lineup
Steve Smith, better known as Red Green, from the beloved Gemini Award-winning comedy series The Red Green Show, will be taking the show to the road in 2019 for his "This Could Be It" tour. The name says it all: Potentially Red Green's last tour as he heads out on the road to hold 'Lodge Meetings' all over North America. This might be your last opportunity to catch Red live before he takes a long look at his birth certificate and decides not to keep pushing his luck.
This latest one man show features some brand new handyman projects, advice to married guys and teenage boys, tips on getting old, an apology to the world on behalf of all baby boomers, with special contributions from Harold and a couple of other cast members, talking animals, and a final wish from Red to all of his loyal fans.
Red Green's U.S. portion of his North American tour schedule is set to go on sale on Thursday, September 6, with more dates to be added. The Fall of 2019 Canadian tour destinations will include Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Peterborough, Ottawa, Kitchener, London, Red Deer, Victoria, Nanaimo, plus more to be added, with tickets going on sale November 1.

The Red Green Show is also the latest addition to the Heartland TV Network lineup, with the first two episodes set to premiere on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 and Thursday, September 6 at 7PM ET/PT. The Red Green Show will also be offered on Heartland's free Roku live streaming channel.
The thirty-minute series, offering a unique hybrid of sitcom and sketch comedy entertainment often parodying do-it-yourself and outdoor shows, originally ran for 15 seasons on CBC Television in Canada and PBS in America. The show stars Steve Smith as Red Green along with Patrick McKenna, Rick Green, Jeff Lumby, Wayne Robson, and Bob Bainborough.
Of the addition to Heartland, The Red Green Show creator and star Steve Smith said, "We look forward to our hopeless handyman, master of misadventure and self-delusional philosopher, Red Green, joining the Heartland lineup. Our fans tell us that The Red Green Show brand of comedy unites generations and we look forward to Heartland families having the same experience. Heartland fans, grab a roll of duct tape and your favorite beverage and let the fun begin!"

About The Red Green Show:
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. 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.
