Lee Ridley AKA Lost Voice Guy may not be able to talk, but he definitely has something to say, and his comedy will leave you speechless.
He has gained a reputation for being both very funny and completely unique, and been described as “a wonderful comedian” by Little Britain’s
Lost Voice Guy won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014, and last summer became the prestigious winner of ITV’s highest rated show, Britain’s Got Talent. He was the first comic ever to win the show, and when he took to the stage, he delivered one of the most hilarious stand- up routines the show has ever seen.
The Newcastle funnyman, whose cerebral palsy affects his ability to speak, is the first stand up comedian to use a communication aid. Right from the start of the ITV competition, Lost Voice Guy impressed and entertained with his comedy routines, spoken entirely through an iPad app. In order to perform, Ridley uses a speech synthesiser upon which he programs his material before selecting certain lines based on audience reaction. Lee also performed at the Royal Variety Performance, in December, as his prize.
