Kenny Easterday (born December 7, 1973) is an American man born with a rare disability called sacral agenesis. To improve his mobility, his legs were amputated at the hip when he was six months old.
Easterday gained some notoriety following the 1988 release of the Canadian movie The Kid Brother (1988) (also known as Kenny), which he played a fictionalized version of himself. To this day, Kenny Easterday refuses to use a prosthesis, preferring to walk on his hands or use a skateboard. He was married at the age of 19 to an able-bodied woman named Sarah; they were divorced two years later.
He was a regular on "The Messenger", on The Jerry Springer Show, and the focus of a TLC special titled "The Man with Half a Body", aired April 2009 and 2010 and June 2013, whether he had fathered a child by his fiancée Nikki.
