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.
Since making his first stand up performance in February 2012, Ridley has already gained quite a reputation for being both very funny and very unique. He has been described as “a wonderful comedian” by Little Britain’s Matt Lucas and has warmed up at Tour shows for the likes of Ross Noble, Patrick Kielty, Jason Manford and Jason Cook.
He won the BBC New Comedy Award 2014 and won Britain’s Got Talent in 2018. 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, uses a voice synthesiser for his act. He is the first stand up comedian to use a communication aid. Right from the start of the 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.
