Very sad news about Sean Lock. A huge favourite of mine, first came across him 20 odd years ago with 15 Storeys High and loved him ever since, his stand up was first class. While he's always been very funny on Cats & Countdown, I was always sort of waiting on him to do something better as I thought it was beneath him! RIP Sean. Cancer really is a ****.

Edit: great article from Harry Hill in the Guardian

He was one of those likeable guys where you just know he was genuinely funny without having to work too hard at it. Always understated, and didnít go for the obvious cheap laughs as much as some of them. Cancer really is a c**t.

Very sad and surprised to hear this news. Apparently he was Irish background with parents from Armagh.

Very witty guy. Did well to suppress any strain of dour Armagh blood he had in him in fairness.

No way. :(

Had heard he'd left their tour recently for health reasons, but didn't realize it was that serious.
