That same year, Kenny was transferred from Tampa to Atlanta and on a whim, pursued a childhood dream and began taking acting and improv classes. Imitating his comedy heroes and making people laugh at his own original characters and comedic voices came naturally and he believed he could be a sketch comic, whatever that meant. He soon landed his first lead role on stage in John Patrick Shanley's "Italian American Reconciliation". Not long after that, he booked his first of 8 Georgia Lottery commercials. Throwing a curveball of his own, Kenny suddenly left 'Big Pharma' and became a full-time actor. When work was slow, he continued taking classes, writing and performing his original characters and working on all the indie films he could.
