Chunky: The Best Bits from Acorn Antiques to Kitty and more (Hardback)Victoria Wood (author)
Collecting the complete scripts of Acorn Antiques as well as numerous side-splitting monologues and sketches, this indispensable volume is the perfect tribute to the late, great Victoria Wood.
'Babs (on telephone): Acorn Antiques, can I help you? Gainsborough's Blue Boy? Yes, I think we have it in mauve, I'll just check.
Flips over blank bits of paper.
Yes, we do; shall I pop it under the counter for you? Not at all, bye!'
Chunky contains the complete scripts of Wood's beloved wobbly-walled spoof soap opera Acorn Antiques, as well as the Kitty monologues: 'My name's Kitty. I've had a boob off and I can't stomach whelks so that's me for you.'
It also features daytime television presenters Margery and Joan, Susie the waspish Continuity Announcer, and the unforgettable bus stop stories of Kelly-Marie Tunstall: 'I said I'll tell everyone what happened on Christmas Eve when you drank two pints of correcting fluid and sexually harassed me with an outsize party squeaker'.
Published to mark the 70th anniversary of Victoria Wood's birth, this stunning revised edition of Chunky collects the very best of Wood's sketches, shows and more featuring:
With a new introduction from Celia Imrie, star of many of Victoria Wood's shows. Additions and annotations from Wood's acclaimed official biographer, Jasper Rees. This is a true celebration of an inimitable and greatly missed comedic genius.
