Lockipedia, Sean Lock

lockipediaIn Lockipedia (2010), Sean discovers that he’s found a new area of comedy. “You don’t necessarily laugh your tits off, but you don’t walk off with a pissed off look on your face.” That’s a fair description of this stand up special. Lock keeps a balance between being the manly former construction worker/goat herder and not being afraid to prance about the stage like he’s in Swan Lake.

He thinks Twitter should be renamed Bollocks because celebrities tweeting is like their heads are broken and leaking onto the internet. He describes the aging on his face, pointing out how each bit got there, but the only explanation he can find for a six pack on his forehead is if he had Alzheimer’s and drove a ghost train. He talks about the death of celebrities, like Michael Jackson, and his own funeral plans; he doesn’t want an undertaker, just a man in a van.



Sean Lock is a standup comedian. Three of his shows are available in a DVD box set. He is the creator and star of the sitcom 15 Storeys High. He did a little bit of time goat herding, which he says was the hardest thing he’s ever done.



“If I could scatter my ashes wherever I want, I’d have them scattered in Piers Morgan’s eyes.”

In the middle of the show, he plays Battleship with the audience, meaning that he picks out seats at random and they give him a letter and then a word that starts with that letter. Sean then gives them a joke about that word, claiming he has jokes about everything. It turns out he doesn’t, but it’s funny to see the attempt. Buy on DVD (region 2/PAL).
