The ceremony, held in Hamilton, Ontario, was a celebration of Canadian humour in all its forms. Steve was inducted into this prestigious Hall of Fame along with other Canadian comedy greats including Martin Short, Jim Carrey, and Eugene Levy

Steve’s induction is a well-deserved recognition of his enduring contribution to Canadian entertainment. For over three decades, he has brought laughter and joy to countless lives with his creation, the iconic Red Green character. His dedication to the craft and his unwavering support for the Canadian comedy scene serve as an inspiration to aspiring artists and seasoned performers alike.

The night was made even more special by the presence of several Possum Lodge members in the audience. Seeing them cheer on Steve in true community spirit was a testament to the camaraderie and support that defines our Lodge. Their presence served as a reminder that the impact of Steve's work extends far beyond the screen, fostering a sense of belonging and connection amongst fellow Possum Lodge Members across the globe.
