Shane Jacobson talks how answering machine messages got him a job on radio on #YGSS

This week on You’ve Gotta Start Somewhere (#YGSS), Rachel Corbett chats with performer and host of Little Big Shots, Shane Jacobson.

Shane knew early in his life he wanted to entertain people, putting on his first show when he was still in nappies.  From those early moments he relentlessly pursued a career in performance but success did not come easy.

In this episode Shane talks about how an early hobby creating answering machine messages for friends got him a job on radio, how Brian Nankervis calling in sick got him a job as a warm up guy and how a film that was only supposed to be shown at short film festivals become one of the most successful and loved Australian movies of all time. 


Each week Rachel chats with well-known media personalities about how they got into the business, how they’ve managed to stay there and what it takes to build a successful career. Click here to subscribe to the podcast.
