15 Minutes of Misery / 15 Storeys High
Sean Lock comedy of life in London tower block

15 Minutes of misery

Sean Lock presents a show from his high-rise tower block flat, listening in to the varied assortment of neighbours who live around him, and interrupted by the occasional visitor.

He eavesdrops on the block's other residents using the "Bugger King" - it has nothing to do with meat or sex, but is in fact a device for tuning into any one of a number of microphones that plumber Hot Bob has hidden for him in the other flats.

15 Storeys High

Vince lives in Flat 76, Elderberry House, Maydew Estate, trying to keep the world at bay. The world, for some reason, does not want to play his game.

Series one aired from 24 November 1999 to 22 December 1999, and starred Lock, along with Felix Dexter, Jenny Eclair, Tim Mitchell, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Chris Pavlo and Peter Serafinowicz. Series two aired from 24 November 2000 to 22 December 2000, and included roles from Dan Freedman, Alex Lowe, Dan Mersh, Paul Putner, Rob Rouse and Chris Neill. The show introduced Sean's flatmate Errol (played by Serafinowicz in series 1, episodes 25).

The series later transferred to television.
