Kevin Bishop to star in Fully Committed at Menier Chocolate Factory

The comedian has previously appeared in ”The Recruiting Officer” at Chichester Festival Theatre

The Menier Chocolate Factory will celebrate its tenth anniversary with a brand new production of the show that put it on the map in 2004, Fully Committed, starring comedian Kevin Bishop.

Becky Mode's play is a one-man show centring on Sam Peliczowski, a 'resting actor' who works at one of the swankiest restaurants in Manhattan.

Directed by Mark Setlock, who starred in the show at the Menier ten years ago, Fully Committed runs from 10 September to 15 November (previews from 3 September) and sees Bishop play over 40 characters in a 'comedy tour-de-force'.

Kevin Bishop is best known for his television appearances including The Kevin Bishop Show, Super Fun Night and Whites. His theatre credits include The Recruiting Officer (Chichester) and Fat Pig (Comedy Theatre).

Set and costume design is by Tim Shortall, lighting design is by Tim Mascall and sound design is by Gareth Fry.
