Victoria Wood Live at the Albert Hall provides proof, if any were needed, that after two decades at the top of her profession, Wood is one of a small handful of British comedians of either sex capable of filling the country’s largest venues. For the consistently high quality of her penetrating observations of the mundane she has no equal. This performance has all the hallmarks of her microscopic examinations of life’s perplexing minutiae and trivia. From her recent hysterectomy to Paul Daniels, from the NHS help line to wheelie bin covers, from Americans in Disneyworld to the ageism of catalogue mailing lists, nothing escapes Wood’s attention. Not even in-vogue authors: she refuses to read “Captain Corelli’s friggin’ Mandolin” as it sits reproachfully at her bedside.
