Publisher's Summary

Purple Van Man, is '8 out of 10 Cats' star Sean Lock's fantastic new audiobook, recorded in front of a sold out audience at London's Hammersmith Apollo.

We all know what white van man thinks about the world we live in but it's time to hear a different voice, the purple van man's voice.

Filled with gags, opinions, deft observations and some silly voices, this is Sean Lock doing what he does best, spouting inspired jibber jabber as he crosses the country in his purple van.

He will make you laugh like a drunken horse.

    "Genius"

    Love Sean Locke. This is proper stand up. Hilarious sideways looks at everyday situations. He's like my dad, brother and best male mate rolled into one. Laughter is definitely an aphrodisiac. Give me Sean over a pretty boy anytime.

    "Great laugh"

    Funny hour or so listening to some excellent humour delivered in a great Sean Lock way, fantastic, just wish it was longer.
    It's a stage performance recording so occasionally you can't see the references but it doesn't spoil the joke.
    Good buy.

    "Was ok"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Thought this show had a few funny moments , however it's very similar to the last show and probably the fact it was so similar made it not so funny.
    Ok if you haven't heard his other show

    "A Departure from his Panel Show Material"

    It seems like Sean Lock is best known in the UK for his appearance on a multitude of Panel Shows, including the likes of 8 out of 10 Cats.

    I wasn't sure what to expect from his stand-up, and that said, it wasn't exactly what I might have expected...it was more narrative than gag-driven, and seemed to have a few lulls where even the live audience weren't entirely sure what to make of some jokes that were a little close to the bone or obscure. That said, a highlight which should raise a smile for most listeners is his delightfully shameless advocacy of heavy drinking as a 'hobby', and his lengthy description of the morning-after paranoia (complete with associated sound-effect: [gnnnnnnnnngh...!]) of such a pastime, which should resonate with anyone who's ever regretted anything, especially after a heavy night or six.

    Worth a listen, despite already provoking some mixed Amazon reviews - it seems like most people, like me, are unsure exactly what to expect and don't know what to make of Lock's stand-up. A great opportunity to decide for yourself!
