Sean’s Show, 1992

InTribute To Sean Hughes Who Sadly Died On 16th October

Sean Hughes was a prominent stand up comic who seemed to be able to turn his hand to most things in the entertainment world.  In 1992 he created and starred in his own sitcom: Sean’s Show.

The show ran for two series between 1992 and 1993.  After it’s first series in 1992 it received a nomination in the British Comedy Awards for Best Channel 4 sitcom.

Summary

Sean Hughes plays a fictional version of himself (in much the same way as Tony Hancock in Hancock’s Half Hour).

For series one the show is based around Sean’s life on a set much like his home in Muswell Hill, while he pursues his love Susan while avoiding Angela “who I did not lead on”.

At the end of the season all of the cast bar Sean are killed off.

In series two things are on the up.  Sean owns a house in Chelsea “near the football stadium” (a recurring gag is Sean hitting back footballs, occasionally for Crystal Palace), with his killed off co-stars resurrected as identical twins of their characters.
