Kenny

Hit Australian mockumentary about Kenny Smyth - divorced with a son, and porta-loo attendant ('plummer' if you ask him). From the biggest festival to the smallest church social, Kenny delivers porta-loos to them all. Part philosopher, part comedian and all heart, Kenny is one of the cogs in society’s machinery; a knight in shining overalls taking care of business for the Splashdown company. The film lifts the lid on one of Australia’s roughest diamonds, as he juggles family tensions, fatherhood and sewage with charm, humour and unflinching dignity.

Funny enough to give scatology a good name, Aussie mockumentary "Kenny" is a consistently amusing and surprisingly touching portrait of a loveable lug who installs toilet blocks at public events...

Kenny is hilarious - toilet humour and all - and surprisingly touching. Just remember to wash your hands afterwards...
