SHANE Ja­cob­son is an Aus­tralian ac­tor, di­rec­tor and co­me­dian, best known for his per­for­mance as por­taloo plumber Kenny in the 2006 fi lm of the same name. When Kenny be­came a world­wide hit, Ja­cob­son was al­ready an act­ing vet­eran.

In this au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, he looks back on his act­ing ad­ven­tures, from ap­pear­ing along­side an all- girl re­vue as a young boy to his most fa­mous role.

He also re­counts per­sonal tales, in­clud­ing meet­ing his “soul mate’’ at the pay- TV in­dus­try’s AS­TRA awards in 2007.
