Culinary comedy Fully Committed returns to the Menier Chocolate Factory starring Kevin Bishop.
Acclaimed comedian and actor Kevin Bishop stars in a revival of whirlwind comedy Fully Committed at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
Revived to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Chocolate Factory, this comedy put the South London venue on the map and promises to be a hit all over again.
This whirlwind culinary comedy is set in a hot Manhattan restaurant… how far would you go to get a table at the hottest place in the town? Blackmail? Harrassment? Humiliation?!…
A blisteringly funny comedy, the show features over forty characters in an unforgettable comedy tour-de-force.
Fully Committed is directed by Mark Setlock and written by Becky Mode.
Sam Peliczowski (Kevin Bishop) is in demand, but not for his acting. Instead he mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one restaurant – a place where EVEREYONE wants to be seen… and everyone wants a piece of Sam! As he juggles scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and an egomaniacal boss, Sam also has to find space to sort out his own life and flagging career.
