A clip from 2014 of Sean Lock eviscerating Russell Brand has resurfaced online in the wake of sexual assault allegations against the comedian.
On Saturday, Channel 4 and the Times released a joint investigation into Brand, in which the comedian was accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse.
Brand denies the accusations.
In footage from a 2014 episode of Channel 4 panel show 8 Out of 10 Cats, Lock discusses Brand, who at the time had recently released his book ‘Revolution’ and was becoming more and more politically vocal.
Brand had made headlines for also saying he had never voted in a general election and encouraging others to follow his example.
Speaking about Brand, the late Lock said: “The main problem now is these people get the politicians they deserve because they don’t take any interest in politics.
“And him [Brand] saying stuff to people who are disaffected already and aren’t engaged with the political process is the most moronic, self-serving, pathetic bit of attention-seeking w*nk.”
Lock then goes on to say that he has a “fear” that one of his daughters will one day “bring something like that home.”
He said: “Probably the reason I hate him so much is because I’m a Dad and I’ve got this fear that one day my daughters will bring something like that home.
“He’ll come in and he’ll go: ‘Oh such pleasure to be in your charming abode!’”
Sharing the clip on X, one person wrote: “The genius that was Sean Lock nailiing Russell Brand years ago.”
