Sean Lock fans call for The Tiger Who Came For A Pint to be published

Lock’s Tiger Who Came For A Pint is a literature classic

Fans of the late comedian Sean Lock have taken to Twitter with a genius idea to pay tribute to his unique comedy- publishing his original book The Tiger Who Came For A Pint.

On Wednesday, a statement from his agent Off The Kerb Productions to the PA news agency confirmed that Lock had died aged 58, after battling cancer.

Beloved for his appearances on 8 Out Of 10 Cats and 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Lock had a flare for manifesting book ideas, one of them being The Tiger Who Came For A Pint. Described by Lock as containing two of his favourite things, tigers and alcohol, legions of fans have taken to social media to call for its release.

The tiger was described as wanting a ‘pint that packs a punch like Stella or Kronenbourg.’

‘The tiger was thirsty and needed something to wash down the zookeeper he’d just eaten,’ Lock continued.

The Tiger reportedly likes the atmosphere in Wetherspoons, and he was barred from The Kings Head for mauling the darts team.

‘The tiger drank his pint quietly by the quiz machine,’ he continued.

‘Soon, what with the beer, fags and grilled McCoy’s he’d spent all his money.

The Tiger continues to get positively trashed before getting a cab ride home with Pavel, from Station Cars. But the ominous ending in which the pub owner never hears from the Tiger or Pavel again is the ominous cliffhanger all great works of literature conclude with.

Sharing the clip on Twitter, another fan said: ‘In honour of Sean Lock, I think we need to make ‘The Tiger Who came For A Pint’ a reality.’

‘Request to get ‘The Tiger Who Came For A Pint’ properly published and all the money to go to wherever the Lock family want. #SeanLock,’ another added.
