Sean Lock fans have come up with the perfect way to remember the late comic and raise some money for a good cause – publishing his book The Tiger Who Came For A Pint.
Lock died at the age of 58 from cancer, with tributes pouring in.
As well as his stand-up and sitcom, he was well known for his appearances on 8 Out Of 10 Cats and 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, with the star often delighting viewers with his parody books.
One of the most memorable, The Tiger Who Came For A Pint, was described by Lock as containing two of his favourite things – tigers and alcohol.
The tiger was described as wanting a ‘pint that packs a punch like Stella or Kronenbourg.’
‘The tiger was thirsty and needed something to wash down the zookeeper he’d just eaten,’ Lock continued.
‘He died at home from cancer, surrounded by his family.
‘Sean was one of Britain’s finest comedians, his boundless creativity, lightning wit and the absurdist brilliance of his work, marked him out as a unique voice in British comedy.
‘Sean was also a cherished husband and father to three children.
‘Sean will be sorely missed by all that knew him. We kindly request that the privacy of his family and children is respected at this difficult time.’
