One of Hamilton’s best known entertainers, Steve Smith has kept people laughing for over 30 years. He first hit TV screens with Smith & Smith, which produced 195 episodes and won an Iris Award. He went on to the Comedy Mill, which won a Gemini Award. But it is the Red Green Show, which ran for 15 years and generated 300 episodes, that created his most enduring character and brought his unique humour to audiences around the world. In the United States the show has the distinction of being the second longest running television comedy series. Steve has been named to the Order of Canada, was the 2005 winner of the Earle Grey Lifetime Achievement Award and has received a total of 27 Gemini nominations.
