RIP the brilliant Victoria Wood. So innovative, funny and down to earth.
This has not been a good year.

Inconceivable that Victoria Wood has gone. She had a kindly yet savage eye for the ordinariness and the grotesquerie of life.

The two MOST important comedians of my young life were Victoria Wood and Billy Connolly. They taught me comedy was ideas through jokes.

First play I saw at the Everyman was Victoria Wood's TALENT. It was so wonderful and I've loved her ever since. Tragic loss. Very sad day.
