In celebration of our tenth anniversary year, the Chocolate Factory presents a brand new production of the show that put us on the map in 2004, Fully Committed, the whirlwind culinary comedy set in one of Manhattan’s hottest restaurants, where the city never sleeps and the phone never stops ringing!
Blackmail…Harassment… Humiliation… How far would you go to get a table at the smartest restaurant in town? Sam Peliczowski is in demand, but not for his acting. Instead he mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan's number-one eatery and everyone wants a piece of him. 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. This blisteringly funny play features over forty characters in an unforgettable comedy tour-de-force.
Starring Kevin Bishop
Kevin’s theatre work includes Fat Pig (Comedy Theatre) and The Recruiting Officer (Chichester Festival Theatre). Amongst his extensive television appearances, Kevin wrote and starred in his own comedy sketch series The Kevin Bishop Show for Channel 4. He is a regular on the US sitcom Super Fun Night and BBC sitcom Whites. Kevin has made guest appearances on Hotel Babylon , Peep Show, Love Soup and My Family. Film work includes A Few Best Men, Susie Gold and he played the role of Jim Hawkins in Muppet Treasure Island.
