Kenny

1h 40m Comedy 2006

_“Clayton Jacobson’s hilarious mockumentary is an affectionate portrait of one of our nation’s overlooked heroes, a genial bloke who works for a porta-loo company whose irresistible slogan is “We’re number one with your number twos”. It will leave audiences rolling in the aisles.” - Tom Ryan, Sunday Age review.

From the biggest festival to the smallest church social, Kenny Smyth delivers porta-loos to them all. Ignored and unappreciated, he is one of the cogs in society’s machinery; a knight in shining overalls taking care of business with his faithful ‘Splashdown’ crew.

Follow Kenny as he tackles every septic challenge that comes his way, culminating in a pilgrimage to that Mecca of waste management, the International Pumper and Cleaner Expo in Nashville Tennessee - or as Kenny affectionately calls it, “Poo HQ”.

With fly-on-the-wall honesty and wit, ‘KENNY’ lifts the lid on one of Australia’s roughest diamonds as he juggles family tensions, fatherhood and sewage with charm, humour and unflinching dignity.

“It takes a certain kind of person to do what I do… No-one’s ever impressed; no-one’s ever fascinated… If you’re a fireman, all the kids will want to jump on the back of the truck and follow you to a fire. There’s going to be no kids willing to do that with me. So, I don’t do it to impress people - it’s a job, it’s my trade, and I actually think I’m pretty good at it.” - Kenny Smyth

Part philosopher, part comedian and all heart, KENNY is living proof that in sewage, like life, the best will always rise to the top.
