Of course, this is not quite the full show. It's just Smith on stage, delivering a monologue and telling stories.
He explained, "It's more like a one-sided conversation, which is always my favorite conversation."
The character of Red Green actually goes back much farther than the 15 years Smith played him on Public Television. He was created as a kind of parody of another television personality, Canadian fishing show host Red Fisher.
"He did a straight out fishing show, nothing funny about it, and Red had the attitude that nothing could bore you. He'd do a fishing show, not catch any fish and air it. He looked at it like it was his job was to fill the half hour. Your job was to make it entertaining."
Smith took the unflappable attitude and gruff personality and fashioned Red Green, a character who first appeared on "Smith and Smith," a sketch comedy show he did in the early 1980s with his wife, Morag Smith.
"I'd do these two minute bits," he said. "But it just clicked."
Fisher eventually became aware of Smith's comedy bit. A radio morning show in London, Ontario, arranged for the two to meet on the air.
Smith said they were supposed to go on the air at 9 a.m., but after a couple of minutes, Fisher still hadn't called in. They waited, and then went to a commercial break while the radio show host phoned Fisher.
"And he got him!" Smith exclaimed.
Smith said the host asked Fisher, "Hey, aren't you supposed to be on the radio?"
Fisher replied, "Yeah, but I've been on the road and really needed to do my laundry."
Smith laughed and said Fisher was an original.
He said he had no regrets about the end of the Red Green show. He'd originally planned on retiring the character, but he's pleased to have found something different for him to do with Red.
Since 2010, Smith has done more than 130 of these one-man shows. His show Monday at the Clay Center will be one of the last as Red Green -- at least with this material.
"This particular version ends November 9. After that, I'm going to put it all away, and I won't say any of those words ever again."
After that, he's got to finish up his next Red Green book, which he's calling, "A Beginner's Guide To Women."
"Chances are this may lead to a lawsuit or a tour -- or both," he said.
