In the one-man show Fully Committed, which you can see on Broadway through July 24, Jesse stars as a reservationist at a hot New York restaurant—and goes on to play an additional 39 characters, from kookie-needy VIP guests to an obnoxious, entitled chef. We already knew Jesse did extensive restaurant research for his roles, from visiting Michelin-star establishments to cancelling reservations at the last minute to study reactions. But Jesse also channels his passion for food into a recipe blog that he runs with chef and recipe developer Julie Tanous.
