What a legend.  Gone too soon, and he's sorely missed, but he left a long trail of some of the funniest bits ever to be aired.

So many great lines. "That's a challenging wank" is classic. There's lots of Cats Does Countdown videos on YT that are well worth watching.

/Bill Bailey did a walk a couple of weeks ago to raise money in Sean's memory. I gave a small donation.

The bit from right before "that's a challenging wank" where Sean tells about the time he went seal clubbing and then when he almost won "Rectum of the Year," is hysterical.  Poor Claudia Winklemann was in tears.

He was one of my favorites, a hilarious divergent thinker.

Can we get a moment of appreciation for Claudia? She died twice during "rectum of the year" and her comedy remains unaffected.

Yeah, good video. The link has all the big ones. It has carrot, rectum of the year and challenging wank.

I also like:

Stephen Fry: "Do you?"
Sean Lock: "But I ignore them and just carry on killing."

Jon Richardson: "There's times I think about you in the week and I just don't know what you do."
Sean Lock: "I sit in a tree and spit at pigeons."

Lock's list of his greatest achievements is one of the funniest bits I've ever seen. When he ludicrously name checks Fearne Cotton -- a truly lovely woman -- I just lose it.  I was surprised to find that his stand-up and sit-com work were so different. I think it came down to being able to simply use his normal voice. He didn't speak naturally in his stand-up work -- he was stiffer and more studied than he needed to be -- and he wasn't a very good actor. So, the step-child panel show became his best forum.

Thanks to all of the people who labored over making those clips.

One of my all-time favourite bits from 8OO10C is this exchange with Sarah Millican:

I'm glad I was on to him before he died. And good lord, Rachel is a good-looking woman.

Sean last August, and Norm last September.

It was not a humourous autumn.

Sean Locke was exactly the stand-up comedian that at one time I wanted to be, though I quickly realized I didn't have the chops.

He brought the perfect blend of smart and surreal- the man elevated every panel show he was on.
