Super news for Sean Lock’s Irish fans! He’s just confirmed new Dublin dates for his hit live show Keep It Light!
Due to unforeseen circumstances late last year, Sean was forced to cancel his sold-out December 2016 shows and was unable to secure new dates until now! Tickets for 12 & 13 November at The Olympia Theatre go on sale Thursday 05 October at 9am.
Sean Lock is one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed and original comedians, making his stage debut over fifteen years ago. His stand-up is the product of a hyperactive imagination combining hilariously surreal imagery and insightful observations on the human condition.
Come and see what he’s blithering on about this in this brilliant new show!

Sean has performed in some of the most successful live shows of recent years, beginning in 1995 when he collaborated with Bill Bailey on Rock, the much misunderstood music industry spoof later to be serialised on BBC Radio One.

He also wrote and presented TV’s Believe It Or Not for BBC4 in 2008 and The Great British Sunday where Sean looks at what Sundays always meant to him – from hangovers to Jack Hargreaves, from Sunday school and stately homes to utter boredom.

In 2000 Sean’s show No Flatley, I Am The Lord Of The Dance was nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award. That year he also received a British Comedy Award for Best Stand Up (previous winners include Jack Dee, Eddie Izzard and Jo Brand). Sean has also won a Time Out Comedy Award.
