Shane Jacobson is set to shine the spotlight on the brightest stars of all in LITTLE BIG SHOTS, a new feel good entertainment program created by talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres and American TV legend, Steve Harvey. It is produced by Warner Brothers International Television Production Australia for Channel Seven.
It’s not a competition. There are no prizes. And no judges. It’s simply about embracing what it means to be young, fun and free. Children will take to the stage to showcase their passion. There are no categories, or fast and hard rules for their performances. The only thing we can be sure of is we will be blown away by these LITTLE BIG SHOTS.
Australian comedian, actor, writer, producer and director, Shane Jacobson joins the Seven family for the first time in his new role as host of LITTLE BIG SHOTS and is looking forward to proving that the biggest stars often come in the smallest packages.
“Comedians can try as hard as they may but nothing is more amusing than the open minded kid,” says Shane. “As a parent of four children I spend my life being entertained by my own brood. All kids have skills and this show celebrates performers with amazing skills.”
“LITTLE BIG SHOTS gives kids the chance to perform without being judged so at the end of the day every performer stays the hero. I would have given anything to be a part of this show as a child.”
Shane’s love affair with the lime light began at the tender age of eight when he stood on the stage during his amateur theatre days. The comic genius has just finished filming his latest film, The BBQ and recently celebrated 10 years since he graced the silver screen as Kenny Smyth in Kenny.
Seven’s Director of Programming, Angus Ross, said: “LITTLE BIG SHOTS is the ultimate, feel good program. We're delighted to welcome Shane into the Seven fold. He’s a sensational performer and the perfect fit for this family friendly show with a lot of heart.”
Managing Director WBITVP Australia, Michael Brooks, said: “LITTLE BIG SHOTS has enjoyed incredible success internationally showcasing the world’s most talented, funny and extraordinary kids.
It’s a brilliant, fun, family show and Shane Jacobson is the ideal host.” LITTLE BIG SHOTS is now casting for talent. Applications for children aged between 3 - 13 can be sent here
