How awful. A really talented, funny, ubiquitous talent. A real loss.

The afterlife? "I'll do that spinning on my cock."

Seriously though, this can get fucked. Very funny man with a unique comic voice. He did look ill a couple of years ago but this has still taken me by surprise.

Bloody hell, holy shit. Just stunned by this news. One of the effortless talents.

One thing I've not seen any articles mention yet is his association with the experimental British filmmaker Andrew Kötting.  Here's a short film that Lock co-wrote and appears in.

Absolutely worth a watch.

Shame so many people will know him for coasting on panel shows, although I guess most of those people aren't as down about them as we are.

Unfortunately one of the culprits of turning comedy into a televised witty pub chat with occasional parlour game elements. Low effort, unchallenging for the audience.

He possessed a great mind nevertheless and stripping out the schlock, he has a CV nearly all of us would envy. Seemed like a good genuine guy and it's a tragic, horribly hurtful and cruel age to die. RIP.

And Jimmy Carr's still alive, there's no justice in this world.

He said nothing about a Viking funeral but he certainly discourages it.

someone check on Sean Walsh (actually, don't)

Sadly, he died at my local comedy club last Thursday.

Very sad to hear this, always seemed a good egg and was a great performer. I didn’t even know he was ill.

Scrolling through the tributes on Twitter, I've just been reminded of this little aside in Stewart Lee's book, which I wasn't sure if he was joking or if it was an actual Sean Lock routine he was describing. I like to think it's real though:

RIP Sean. And thanks for the lols.

The Daily Mail have taken a screencap of him looking gaunt in 2020 and put it on the front page of their website captioned 'Last Picture.' Which is nice.

I saw him once at a benefit gig in about 2008. He came out in the second half, clearly a bit tipsy and did most of his set in a Bernard Manning style voice. He was great.

I love the curmudgeonly discord he would bring to otherwise shiny proceedings, thereby making them worth watching. Recall his blunt Big Fat Quiz critique of those child actors, for example, or his willingness to disgust and appall on 8OO10C.

I have the wonderful 15 Storeys High on DVD, but I'm not sure I ever got round to watching the second series. Will do.

The evolution of 15 Minutes of Misery into 15 Storeys High on radio into the TV series is the best endorsement of the radio 4 development system I can think of. The absolute burying of the TV series must've been horrible to deal with. Def need to do a rewatch.

Extremely funny man, enjoyed the standup I've seen of his loads but always got the impression he was holding back from going as weird as he probably wanted to with some bits. Wouldn't surprise me if his WIPs were better than the finished shows.

Circa early 90s, I used to specifically go to the Comedy Store if I knew Lock was on the bill. Guaranteed a great night out, especially if his mate Lamarr was compering and Bob Mills was lurking by the bar in the shadows to go on next. God, I miss those days.

Lock had a brilliantly inventive mind, this is such a great loss to comedy. I didn't know he'd been so ill. Absolutely rotten news.

The Daily Mail haven't covered themselves with glory today.  Here is their headline:



I mean surely you'd have a good proof-read of an article about a tragically young death.  Surely.

Awful news.

It's funny that his obscure work failed, so he had to slum it as a mainstream success. It's the opposite of a most comedy careers.
