Celebrities Who Once Were Plumbers


5 Celebrities Who Once Were Plumbers

Plumbers. Sometimes we’re the heroes, sometimes we’re the butt of the joke (😉) but when you need us, we’re always there. The NuBlue Plumbing team is becoming famously known in the community for our responsiveness, level of professionalism, in-depth knowledge and outstanding customer service. 

Whether Austin, Jamison, Jeff, Aaron, Fletcher, Nikki, Matt or any of our other 5-star plumbers come to your rescue, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing your plumbing problem was handled. But our team of plumbers are not the only well-known plumbers in this world— take a look at this list of famous plumbers (or would-be plumbers) and see if any surprise you! 

  1. Mario & Luigi

Maybe the most famous of all time, Mario & Luigi. Whether you know them from Super Mario Kart or Super Mario Bros, this dynamic duo are two of the most well-known plumbers of all time. 

  1. Michael Flatley

You might know Michael Flatley better as Lord of the Dance. Since the 1990s, Michael Flatley has been dancing his way into our homes and into our hearts, but before he was the Lord of the Dance, he was unofficially, Lord of the Drains. His father was a plumber and Michael followed in his footsteps for some time and ran his own plumbing business called Dynasty Plumbing. 

  1. Ozzy Osbourne

Yes, you read that right. Before he made his place in the music world with hits like Crazy Train, Over the Mountain or Dreamer, he was turning wrenches and solving plumbing problems. He wasn’t so keen on school and dropped out at the age of 15 to work on construction sites and serve as a plumbing apprentice. 

  1. Sir Michael Caine

You’ve seen him on your television screen in classic hits like The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar, and Inception but Sir Michael Caine was not always the famous actor he is today. After serving in the Korean War, he worked as a plumber’s assistant for some time. 

  1. Conor McGregor

If anyone could fight your pipes and win, it’d be Conor McGregor. One of the greatest fighters of our generation was once a plumber. Sources say that McGregor would work 12 hour days and then head to the gym to train— talk about dedication! 

At NuBlue Plumbing we know that our employees are more than just plumbers. We are musicians, stand-up comedians, entrepreneurs and talented individuals with a heart and passion for what we do. Right now, we’ll be satisfied with being famous in our community for the outstanding service, respect and quality that we deliver, but who knows, maybe one day we’ll be as famous as these plumbers. 

If you need to make an appointment with one of our expert plumbers, give our team a call today at (866) 455-2583 or book your appointment online. But please, no autographs— we aren’t famous just yet.
