Is The Tiger Who Came for a Pint real?

Following the news of Sean’s death, fans took to Twitter to share their favourite moments from the comedian, with many of them agreeing that his “Tiger Who Came For a Pint” sketch is a comedy classic.

In the show clip, Sean announced that he had “reworked an old classic” so that it contained his “two favourite things” tigers and alcohol.

He based it off the classic children’s book “The Tiger Who Came to Tea,” by Judith Kerr.

The book begins: “There was once a tiger who fancied 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.”
