Red Green is probably best known for his sketch comedy series, “The Red Green Show,” that aired on CBC and PBS from 1991 until 2006. Segments included “Handyman’s Corner,” where he would attempt to solve relatively common tasks or problems by creating an extravagant invention, such as a hybrid car made from recycled golf carts and satellite dishes, or a kiddie ride made from a bar stool attached to the agitator of a washing machine. The segment would always end with his infamous quip, “If the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.”
Of course, for Red Green, there is no problem that can’t be solved with a little duct tape.
It was that combination of slapstick comedy and witticisms that made the show a huge success, and after taking a bit of a hiatus, the comedian has returned to once again offer his unique take on life through his one-man show, presented in Dawson Creek by the South Peace Community Arts Council.
Tickets are $55 each and are available through the Dawson Creek Art Gallery, or by phoning 250-782-2601. They are also available at Shoppers Drug Mart, but only through cash transactions.
And remember, “keep your stick on the ice!”
