Inspirational internet memes are everywhere these days and BGT star Lost Voice Guy is sick of being an unintentional porn star. Come and see why the BBC New Comedy Award winner, and star of BBC Radio 4 and BBC Three, is not your inspiration, and why he thinks these stupid memes are bollocks. Lost Voice Guy can't talk but he isn't silent and his comedy will leave you speechless.

“Savagely funny…bloody good comedian” – ★★★★ The Wee Review

 

“Entertaining & thought-provoking” – ★★★★ ThreeWeeks

 

Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) is (probably) the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid. Lee won Britains' Got Talent 2018, as well as the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014. His credits include The One Show (BBC One), Voice Of The People (pilot for BBC Three) and Ability (pilot for BBC Radio 4). A series of Ability has been commissioned and will be broadcast in 2018. Lee has supported Patrick Kielty and Ross Noble on tour. Lee has performed at Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Liverpool Comedy Festival, Nottingham Comedy Festival and Leicester Comedy Festival.

“A wonderful comedian” – Matt Lucas

LOST VOICE GUY

"Although he performs despite being mute due to cerebral palsy, Lee Rigby won’t be called an inspiration. The level of comedy he produces, however, blending political commentary with self-deprecation to avoid falling into cheap shots, is." – ★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
