Lost Voice Guy joins Gag Reflex

Chuffed to bits to confirm that Lost Voice Guy will be joining Gag Reflex for all his Live, Touring and Corporate appearences

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.

"Finding humour in strange places is one of Lost Voice Guy’s strengths"
– The Guardian

 

He won the BBC New Comedy Award 2014 and won Britain’s Got Talent in 2018, becoming the first comic 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

"one of the best stand-up routines I’ve seen – let alone on this show"
– David Walliams

 

Lee’s other credits include his own sitcom Ability (BBC Radio 4), The One Show (BBC One), Breakfast (BBC One), This Morning (ITV), Lorraine (ITV), Britain’s Got More Talent (ITV2), Voice Of The People (BBC Three) and BBC At The Edinburgh Festivals (BBC iPlayer).

"Funny, personal, occasionally shocking and frequently mischievous."
– The Independent

 

Lost Voice Guy returns to a sold out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August, and goes on Tour, Nationwide – dates available here, and many more to come. We are thrilled to be working alongside Andrew Roach Talent, with Lee, and predict a very bright future indeed for him.

Tape Face Shrunken Head Revealed

Tape Face revealed his shrunken head at The Golden Tiki this week. The modern-day mime, comedian and “America’s Got Talent” finalist joked, “When my agent said I could get a shrunken head, at the time it was just a dream and now it’s a reality. Thank you very much to The Golden Tiki for this

Managing Partner Branden Powers unveiled the head, which was sculpted by Smithsonian artist Terry Barr over the course of four weeks, referencing photos of Tape Face to ensure physical accuracies, down to his multiple ear piercings.

Tape Face joins the bar’s growing collection of famous shrunken heads, including Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Carrot Top, Frank Marino, Robin Leach, Norm Clarke, Claire Sinclair, magician Murray Sawchuck, Vinnie Paul of Pantera, Chris Phillips of Zowie Bowie, Monti Rock III, Lonnie Hammargren, Rich Little and Piff the Magic Dragon.

Located in Chinatown, Las Vegas, The Golden Tiki is a journey to a wondrous land where boundaries are only limited to one’s imagination. The vision of hospitality veteran Branden Powers, in collaboration with Seth Schorr, Jeff Fine and Joe Cain, The Golden Tiki has spared no expense in recreating the classic mid-century tiki bar, reminiscent of Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic’s storied establishments.

The Golden Tiki adds to its Cabinet of Curiosities by creating Shrunken Heads of well known Vegas performers, a great honour in Sin City.

Said Powers: “These heads keep getting better and better, and it’s an honor to have these Las Vegas icons be a part of The Golden Tiki tradition.

The 'Americas's Got talent' alumnus, Tape Face, continues to perform his multi-year residency at Harrah's Las Vegas.

Although his show contains no dialogue, his performance in Sin City is louder than ever. In conjunction with his show, Harrah's Las Vegas premiered a uniquely customised theatre, called the 'House of Tape'. Tape Face's show is an eccentric, whimsical experience that can be enjoyed by audiences of many different backgrounds, ages and languages.

Tickets are available at any Las Vegas Caesars Entertainment Box Office, by phone at (702) 777-2782 or by visiting www.ticketmaster.com
