Sean Lock: Purple Van man

A mainstay on the UK’s top panel shows, Sean Lock celebrates the silliness that lurks in each of us.

In this stand-up comedy special, Sean Lock adopts the persona of “Purple Van Man” – the regular bloke on the street with a distinctly irregular take on the world.

A mainstay on the UK’s top panel shows, Sean Lock has won over critics and audiences with his deft observations.  In a sold-out show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, this British Comedy Award-winner celebrates the silliness that lurks in each of us. Gravity, velcro, advertising, badly designed centaurs – all these topics and more are refracted through his purple prism. 

Whether setting forth his theory on which celebrity he’d most like to share a sleeping bag with, or lamenting the lack of a 24-hour radio station dedicated solely to scat singing, he infuses the seemingly inane with ingenious logic.
