Following the sad news of the death of one our greatest comedians Sean Lock, Channel 4 and All 4 will be paying tribute to some of the most loved comedy appearances by the uniquely talented comedy performer.
Tomorrow night (Thursday 19th August), Channel 4 will be airing the stand-up special Sean Lock: Keep it Light at 10pm, followed at 11pm by a classic episode of 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. All 4 will be highlighting a collection of Sean’s much-loved TV appearances including 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
In a written statement following the news, Channel 4’s Chief Creative Officer Ian Katz described Sean Lock as “One of the most original voices in comedy and one of the loveliest people too” adding “Sean’s bone dry wit helped make 8 Out of 10 Cats one of Channel 4’s best loved shows and we owe him a huge debt of thanks for all the years of laughter and fun”.
Sean Lock is a much-loved part of the Channel 4 family and has played a pivotal role on the channel for over two decades. He has brought so much laughter and joy both on and off screen. We will miss him hugely. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this very difficult time.
