Character Biography (Source: Wikipedia)

Played by Gregg Binkley, played as a child by Andy Pessoa — A former victim of Earl's bullying as a child, Kenny is one of the first items on his list that Earl attempts to fix (following cleaning up litter), by helping him restore his confidence. The two became friends when Earl helped Kenny come out with his homosexuality. As a result, Kenny helps Earl with completing his list whenever he can, usually to his comedic detriment. He has a job as an assistant manager of a copy shop, which he uses to his advantage, (printing fake birth certificates and résumés, for example). He drives a powder blue Le Car which he also uses to help out Earl. After his boyfriend dumped him, Kenny asked Earl to help him become more of a manly man, which unwittingly led to both of them having a gambling addiction, though Kenny is currently seeking treatment.
