Victoria Wood presents a seasonal special featuring stand up comedy, monologues and sketches in her own inimitable style.
In this one-off 50 minute programme, this well loved comedian treats the viewers at home to hilarious sketches taken from the hit live show at London's Royal Albert Hall in 1994.
Live In Your Own Home originally aired on the BBC and also features actors Julie Walters and Duncan Preston.

The major problem with this DVD is that it is 48 minutes long, when the actual show, as released on VHS in the 90s, was 80 minutes long - so over half an hour has been edited out for no explicable reason whatsoever. The distributor does not even advise anywhere on the cover that this is a very shortened version of the show. Even worse, some of the highlights of the stand-up sections have been cut out, rendering this release a series of highlights, rather than the glorious event that was intended.
My advice to any fan is to avoid this DVD release and search out the VHS - it's still available - and, if you have the patience, to write to the distributor of this DVD and request a future release date for the complete version of the show on DVD.
The description of this show is also misleading. It says it features Julie Walters and Duncan Preston. Well, yes, they are watching in the studio audience, but they don't actually do anything.
Victoria Wood has a unique way of making the audience howl with laughter. She is truly incomparable. I think that this VHS should become one of your most treasured possessions, as this is exceptionally hilarious.
Subjects and Sketches include:
Christmas at Someone else's House,
Haily Baily with Step,
and the unforgettable 'Ballad of Barry and Freda'.
This is one video that just makes you want to collect everything that Victoria Wood has ever done.
