Purple van man is a hilarious new stand up show from Sean Lock, the most fertile comic mind in Britain. We all know what white van man thinks about the world we live in but its time to hear a different voice, 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.
