The "#! <shell>" is a *nix thing that exists in every *nix I have ever seen, for as long as I know (mid 1980's for me . . ) and is used to specify what shell is to be loaded to run that script, since there are many, and syntax is not compatible. Without it, the shell already running will try to run the script, which may well bomb, or no shell could be loaded at all.
