SeanLock’s Lockipedia: Guaranteed Lock and LOLs Sean Lock, TV comedian and quiz show stalwart, have been a rise up comic for over20 years, and is solely about to release his second live DVD, Sean Lock: Lockipedia. Thegenesis of the title is much from complicated, “The last one was called Sean LockLive, which was an inspired moment,” deadpanned Sean, “I came up with the nameLockipedia, because Locki sounds just like Wiki… it really was that blatant.” Theshow sees Sean giving his verdict at the facts of life, and contours some audienceparticipation that truly puts Sean prompt.
