He's the Canuck king of duct tape, the far-north fixture of fix-it, and he may not be handsome, but he is handy. He's Steve Smith, of course, otherwise known as Red Green, the suspender-wearing star of The Red Green Show, the maple leaf's much funnier answer to Home Improvement. Tomorrow, Smith appears in Denver on his "Wit and Wisdom Tour," his standup show in the Red Green persona -- but today, in advance of that appearance, Smith shows up for a free meet and greet with fans at -- where else? -- a hardware store.
From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Smith will be at Green Mountain Ace Hardware, 12035 West Alameda Parkway in Lakewood, hanging out and chatting with fans -- and if you care for an autograph, you're in luck: He'll be signing duct tape.
How well you use that duct tape will be up to you.
