“Request to get ‘The Tiger Who Came For A Pint’ properly published and all the money to go to wherever the Lock family want.”
Fans of the late comedian Sean Lock are calling for his version of the children’s book, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, to be published.
During a panel appearance on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Sean produced his re-worked version of Judith Kerr’s book, titled The Tiger Who Came For A Pint.
The comedian tells the other guests that it’s a “lovely book” which mixes up two of his favourite things – tigers and alcohol.
He then narrates it: “There was once a tiger who came for a pint. Not Carling of course, that was too weak and too gassy.
“He wanted 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. He liked the atmosphere of Wetherspoons, plus he was barred from The King’s Head for mauling the darts team.”
The story sees the tiger blow all his money on beer, crisps and cigarettes which leads him to drinking alcohol from the kegs directly, before urinating on the bar.
Shortly after it was announced that Lock had passed away earlier this week, fans were quick to reshare the video on social media.
One wrote: “In honour of Sean Lock, I think we need to make ‘The Tiger Who Came For A Pint’ a reality.”
Another felt that it the book were published, it could raise funds for Stand Up 2 Cancer.
They said: “Who thinks @Channel4 should publish this as an actual book to raise funds for @SUTCUK in memory of #SeanLock?”
Another put forward a “Request to get ‘The Tiger Who Came For A Pint’ properly published and all the money to go to wherever the Lock family want.”
