Lee Ridley AKA Lost Voice Guy can’t talk but isn’t silent. He is (probably) the first stand up comedian to use a communication aid.
He won the BBC New Comedy Award 2014 and has been commissioned to write a sitcom for BBC Radio 4, which is titled ‘Ability’. This is due to be broadcast in 2018. You can listen to the pilot episode on his radio showreel.
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 for the likes of Ross Noble, Patrick Kielty, Jason Manford and Jason Cook.
He has gigged all over the UK at places like The Stand, Manford’s Comedy Club. In 2013, he took his first ever solo show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has performed a show there every year since.
He has also acted and appeared on many television and radio programmes including BBC One’s The One Show, The One Show’s Edinburgh showcase, and Scot Squad. Watch these on his showreel page. You can also listen to his radio appearances on Soundcloud.
He has told jokes/given motivational speeches for a range of charities and other similar organisations including Barclays, Scope, Motability, Communication Matters, Find A Voice, the Royal College of Nurses, Percy Hedley School and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
