TV comic Kevin Bishop to star in one man warts and all new restaurant show

Published:  20 August, 2014

Fed up reading about all those great comics, plays and turns at this year's Edinburgh Festival when you live miles away and have no chance of seeing them?

Well anyone passing through London town in the coming weeks should make their way to the Menier Chocolate Factory, one of the city's most respected independent theatres, which is putting on a play dedicated to showing what it is really like to work in the restaurant industry.

Fully Committed promises to be a "hilarious one-man show" that shows the world of restaurants and the all the traumas and highs and lows that go with it. It stars Kevin Bishop (yes, he of TV's The Kevin Bishop Show), as a reservationist in an impossible-to-get-into New York restaurant fielding table requests, dealing with blackmail, harassment, an angry chef, celebrities and his own flagging acting career.

All in all he will play no less than 40 characters during the show. Bit greedy really considering all those out of work actors.

The play runs from September 10 to November 4 and you can get tickets at
