Bill Bailey: Star Sean was joking to the end
COMIC Sean Lock was still joking “even in his last days”, pals say.
Bill Bailey said of his “dearest friend”, who died aged 58 from cancer: “We were still joking, still coming up with ideas.We had great conversations – and I brought my guitar in and I sang him Johnny Cash songs.”
Harry Hill revealed: “He took his illness in typically dry style. I heard he was in a hospice for a bit of rest. I called him up. ‘Wow!’ I said. ‘A hospice, what’s that like?’ ‘It’s ok, he said, ‘...and the sex is amazing’.”
Yesterday Eddie Izzard added his tribute to the 8 Out Of 10 Cats star, saying: “His legacy lives on.” Channel 4 last night devoted its later schedule to the dad-ofthree’s talents.
