Morag Smith is a Canadian television comedian, born in Mississauga, Ontario. She attended Streetsville Secondary School. With her husband Steve Smith, Morag performed as a comedy duo in several television series.
The Smiths began their professional partnership with the sketch comedy series Smith & Smith in 1979. The show was produced for six seasons by the Smiths' production company, and aired on Hamilton, Ontario television station CHCH and other Canadian television stations through syndication. Although there were occasional extras, Steve and Morag played almost all the characters on the show.
In 1986, the series evolved into Me & Max, a family sitcom which brought the Smiths' two children into the cast. Steve and Morag Smith, however, played all the adult roles in the series, through split-screen photography. This show was produced for one season, and then Steve and Morag returned to sketch comedy with The Comedy Mill until 1991.
Following the end of The Comedy Mill, Morag retired from active performing as Steve went on to produce The Red Green Show. She has appeared in numerous commercials over the years.
