Sean Lock

Sean Lock is one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed and original comedians, making his stage debut over fifteen 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 BBC Radio One.


Sean is team captain on the topical comedy panel show, 8 Out of 10 Cats, into its seventh series. Sean also has his own show on Channel 4, TV Heaven, Telly Hell, which returned for the second series in the summer of 2008 with guests including Jack Dee and Alan Carr.

Sean Lock has written and stars in his own BBC sitcom 15 Storeys High as Vince the lifeguard who lives in a South London tower block. The show quickly established itself as one of the most original comedy series of recent years and is a cult classic. Series 1 and 2 are now available on DVD. He also wrote and presented TV’s Believe It Or Not for BBC4 in 2008 and The Great British Sunday where Sean looks at what Sundays always meant to him – from hangovers to Jack Hargreaves, from Sunday school and stately homes to utter boredom.

Sean’s extensive television credits include appearances on QI (BBC2), Have I Got News for You (BBC2), They Think It’s All Over (BBC2), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), The World Of Lee Evans (Channel 4), Here’s Johnny (BBC2) and The Stand Up Show (BBC2).

As a writer Sean co-created Mark Lamarr’s Leaving The 20th Century (BBC2), and has contributed to such shows as Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), It’s Only TV But I like It (BBC2) and Is It Bill Bailey (Channel 4).


Sean’s radio credits include regular contributions to Mark Radcliffe’s Evening Show (BBC Radio 1), Loose Ends (BBC Radio 4), The Treatment (Radio 5). In 1999, Sean wrote and starred in 15 Minutes of Misery (BBC Radio 4) which lead to two further series of 15 Storeys High (BBC Radio 4) before its move to television.
