Sean Lock said he ‘hates’ Russell Brand and ‘fears’ his daughters will ‘bring home someone like that’ in viral clip

A clip of the late comedian Sean Lock discussing his disdain for Russell Brand has gone viral following criminal allegations made against the 48-year-old comedian.

Last weekend, Brand was the subject of an exhibition in The temperature, Sunday time and a channel 4 Dispatches documentary, presenting allegations of rape, sexual assault and psychological violence by four women.

The alleged crimes took place between 2006 and 2013. Brand has denied all allegations.

The clip in question is from the Channel 4 comedy show. 8 out of 10 catsand originally aired in November 2014. In the footage, Lock says he “hates” Brand because of his role as a father and “fears” that his daughters will “bring home someone like that.”

Lock, who died in 2021 at the age of 58, discusses Brand following the comedian’s controversial comments on voting. In October 2013, Brand urged people not to vote during an interview with NewsnightIt’s Jeremy Paxman.

Speaking on 8 out of 10 cats, Lock says: “The main problem today is that people get the politicians they deserve, because they are not interested in politics. And (Brand) telling people who are already unhappy and not engaged in the political process, “Don’t vote,” is the stupidest, most selfish, pathetic piece of attention-seeking.

He continues, “The reason I probably hate him so much is because I’m a father and I’m afraid my daughters will bring someone like that home.”

Lock then proceeds to do an impression of Brand, waving his hand in the air and saying, “Such a pleasure to be in your lovely abode.”

The clip circulated on social media, with many praising Lock for his criticism of Brand.

After The temperature and Channel 4 investigation The BBC and Channel 4 have committed to investigating the allegations against Brand.
