Lockipedia: laid-back comic delivers surreal spin on everyday things

Sean Lock: he has the inspired idea of audience Battleships in his show Lockipedia
Sean Lock, as well as being an acclaimed stand-up for many years, has also written for other comics, including Bill Bailey, Lee Evans and Mark Lamarr, and his profile has risen hugely through his stints as team captain on 8 Out of 10 Cats on Channel 4 and regular guest appearances on other panel shows, including QI and Mock the Week. His fans, including me, recall with fondness his sitcom 15 Storeys High, which ran for two series on BBC TV (and which was developed from the equally funny Radio 4 show Sean Lock’s 15 Minutes of Misery).

Comments

I saw Sean at the Wolves Civic, thought he was very good! Agree with you about the length, I think he could have chopped it down a good 30 minutes by removing some of the average gags. But overall very funny and worth every penny of the ticket price.
