ean Lock is one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed and original comedians, making his stage debut over 12 years ago. His stand-up is the product of a hyperactive imagination combining hilariously surreal imagery and insightful observations on the human condition.
Sean is a regular at London’s Comedy Store and has appeared at all the major festivals around the world including Edinburgh, Melbourne, Montreal and the Stavanger Humorfestivat in Norway.
Sean has performed in some of the most successful live shows of recent years. Beginning in 1995 when he collaborated with Bill Bailey on Rock, the much misunderstood music industry spoof later to be serialised on Radio One.
In 2000 his show ‘No Flatley, I Am the Lord of the Dance’ was nominated for the prestigious Perrier award. That year he also received a British Comedy Award for Best Stand Up (previous winners include Jack Dee, Eddie Izzard and Jo Brand). Sean has also won a Time Out Comedy Award.
His sitcom, 15 Storeys High (about a lifeguard living in a tower block), made the big move from BBC3 to BBC2, and he topped a brilliant line-up at London’s Comedy Store, where he’s stormed so many great gigs in the past.
In Sept. 2007 he began his Sean Lock’s Spot the Difference Tour. He is currently a team captain on Channel 4’s topical panel show, 8 out of 10 Cats.
