This wry, witty comedy follows Sam, an actor-slash-reservation clerk at a 4-star Manhattan restaurant who is just trying to get home to the Midwest for the holidays. While simultaneously being badgered by the snitty chef, he “handles” uppity demanding New Yorkers including Dianne Sawyer, Naomi Campbell’s assistant, Sherry Lansing’s secretary at Paramount Pictures, East Side socialites, and suspected members of the mafia. Sam turns the tables of rejection and resorts to accepting bribes in order to “give good table.” One ofTime Magazine’s top-ten plays of 2000, Fully Committed features award-winning actor Gabriel Kuttner.
“Fully Committed has comic chops sufficient to devour an entire season of comedians on Saturday Night Live.”
