    <p class=”mol-para-with-font”>The British comedy world today paid tribute to the ‘truly unique voice’ of Sean Lock after the much-loved 8 Out Of 10 Cats star died of cancer aged 58 surrounded by his family at home.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>The comedian, known for his surreal content and deadpan style, was best known as a team captain on Jimmy Carr’s popular Channel 4 comedy panel show and its spin-off 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Carr led the tributes today, saying it was ‘brutal news’ and that he was ‘laughing and crying’ while watching clips of Lock today – while his friend Lee Mack, who called him a ‘true original both in comedy and life’.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Father-of-three Lock, who had two daughters and one son with his wife Anoushka, appeared on Have I Got News for You, QI, and They Think It’s All Over – and also wrote and starred in the popular BBC sitcom 15 Storeys High. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Jon Richardson, Lock’s fellow captain on 8 Out Of Ten Cats, praised his ‘incredible comic brain’; Susie Dent from the Countdown version described him as an ‘exceptional man’; Ricky Gervais said he was ‘one of the funniest, most influential comedians of a generation’; and Alan Davies said Lock was ‘funny on stage, hilarious off’.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Lock’s agent labelled the Woking-born star as ‘one of Britain’s finest comedians’, saying his ‘boundless creativity, lightning wit and the absurdist brilliance of his work, marked him out as a unique voice in British comedy’. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>It is not known what form of a cancer Lock had battled, but he previously made a full recovery from skin cancer which he blamed on over-exposure to the sun while working on building sites before he became a comedian.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>He previously credited a one-night stand 닥터스피부과 in the 1990s with saving his life, after the woman he was with spotted a black and misshapen patch of skin on his back, which he had removed in hospital and it was diagnosed as cancer. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Today, fellow comedian Harry Hill revealed Lock had spent time in a hospice, telling the Guardian: ‘At his best, Sean reminded us all what we loved about a great gag and why we got into comedy in the first place. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>’That’s why he was so often called ‘the comedian’s comedian’.

    He took his illness in typically dry style. I heard he was in a hospice for a bit of a rest. I called him up. ‘Wow!’ I said. ‘A hospice, what’s that like?’ ‘It’s OK,’ he said ‘… and the sex is amazing’.'</p><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> Sean Lock performs a stand-up routine for the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall in London in March 2006 </div> <noscript> Sean Lock performs a stand-up routine for the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall in London in March 2006 </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”>Sean Lock performs a stand-up routine for the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall in London in March 2006</p></div><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> Sean Lock appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown with Jimmy Carr, Jon Richardson, Rachel Riley and Susie Dent </div> <noscript> Sean Lock appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown with Jimmy Carr, Jon Richardson, Rachel Riley and Susie Dent </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”>Sean Lock appeared on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown with Jimmy Carr, 닥터스피부과 Jon Richardson, Rachel Riley and Susie Dent</p></div><div class=”moduleFull mol-video”></div><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> Lock is pictured showing his support to a crowdfunder by anti-food poverty organisation Edible London in December 2020 </div> <noscript> Lock is pictured showing his support to a crowdfunder by anti-food poverty organisation Edible London in December 2020 </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”>Lock is pictured showing his support to a crowdfunder by anti-food poverty organisation Edible London in December 2020</p></div><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> Katherine Jenkins and Sean Lock during the recording of the Graham Norton Show at the London Studios December 2010 </div> <noscript> Katherine Jenkins and Sean Lock during the recording of the Graham Norton Show at the London Studios December 2010 </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”> Katherine Jenkins and Sean Lock during the recording of the Graham Norton Show at the London Studios December 2010</p></div><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> Sean Lock (left) on the comedy quiz show QI with Alan Davies, Stephen Fry, Phill Jupitus and John Sessions, in 2006 </div> <noscript> Sean Lock (left) on the comedy quiz show QI with Alan Davies, Stephen Fry, Phill Jupitus and John Sessions, in 2006 </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”>Sean Lock (left) on the comedy quiz show QI with Alan Davies, Stephen Fry, Phill Jupitus and 신사역 피부과 John Sessions, in 2006</p></div><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> The TV star, known for his deadpan style, was a team captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown (pictured in 2017) </div> <noscript> The TV star, known for his deadpan style, was a team captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown (pictured in 2017) </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”>The TV star, known for his deadpan style, 신사역 피부과 was a team captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown (pictured in 2017)</p></div><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> Lock (rear, second left) on 'Would I Lie To You?' with (from left) Richard Hammond, David Mitchell, Lock, Rob Brydon, Trevor Noah, Judy Murray and Lee Mack in 2015 </div> <noscript> Lock (rear, second left) on 'Would I Lie To You?' with (from left) Richard Hammond, David Mitchell, Lock, Rob Brydon, Trevor Noah, Judy Murray and Lee Mack in 2015 </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”>Lock (rear, second left) on ‘Would I Lie To You?’ with (from left) Richard Hammond, David Mitchell, Lock, Rob Brydon, Trevor Noah, Judy Murray and Lee Mack in 2015</p></div><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>A statement from his agent Off The Kerb Productions said: ‘It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Sean Lock.
