Kenny: Takin' Care of Business by Kenny Smyth
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Kenny Smyth's business is other people's business. He delivers portaloos to events big and small, from the flashiest rock concert to the smallest church social. Part philosopher, part comedian and all heart, he likens himself to the wheel nuts in your car. When was the last time you looked at them? But where would you be without them? Now Kenny is the eponymous subject of a touching and hilarious mockumentary that was last year's biggest local success at the box office and the recipient of one AFI and three IF awards. Audiences have been falling hook, line and stinker for the gentle plumber with the trademark lisp and deadpan one-liners. A new kind of Aussie hero has bowled us over. KENNY: TAKIN' CARE OF BUSINESS features page after page of solid gold Kenny-isms and jokes from the film along with some recent observations on his unexpected fame. Bring a smile to your dial while reliving the joy, pathos and triumph of Kenny's twists and turns on the S-bend of life.

Author Biography

Kenny Smyth works for Splashdown, which makes him a poop technician, a dunny doctor or a glorified turd burglar depending on who you're talking to. He has a son, Jesse, who is his world and his best mate: 'We carry on like acouple of snakes at a hole punch convention.' He also has a cantankerous father, an obnoxious older brother and a hostile ex-wife. Fortunately he has recently met the lovely Jackie, a flight attendant who 'keeps my head in the clouds and my heart on my sleeve.' No matter what toxic shock life has in store for him, the affable Kenny always emerges smelling of roses.
