Sean Lock – 15 Minutes of Misery and 15 Storeys High
Lock made regular appearances on radio panel shows, script-edited for Bill Bailey’s 1998 BBC2 series, Is It Bill Bailey? and had his show on BBC Radio 4, 15 Minutes of Misery.
The shows were filled with a 15-minute time-slot as the Title suggest and also featured Kevin Eldon and Hattie Hayridge. The premise involved Lock eavesdropping on his neighbours in his south London tower block (all played by Lock, Eldon, and Hayridge) using a bugging device fitted by his plumber, “Hot Bob” (Eldon), which was known as “The Bugger King” (and had “nothing to do with meat or sex”).
The show lasted for one series of six programmes in late 1998 and early 1999, and would later be expanded into the half-hour series 15 Storeys High. From ostensibly the same tower block, Lock’s character was now given a flatmate (the hapless Errol) and a job at the local swimming baths, as well as a somewhat dour and intolerant demeanour.
The bugging device was no longer used, but the antics of Lock’s neighbours still featured heavily in the show. The plots for this series were more linear in a “traditional” sitcom style, although they still showed Lock’s brand of dark, surreal humour.
15 Storeys High later on transfered to television after two radio series, with Lock’s character renamed ‘Vince’, for a further two series in 2002 and 2004.
