About Lost Voice Guy
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 is the first stand up comedian to use a communication aid. He won Britain's Got Talent in 2018 and he won the BBC New Comedy Award 2014.
He has also written a sitcom for BBC Radio 4, called 'Ability', which is now in its second series. 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 also appeared alongside The Boy With Tape On His Face in front of 1,500 people at a charity gig in Edinburgh.
After supporting him on his warm up tour, Ross described Lost Voice Guy as "a very funny guy", Sean Hughes thinks he is "fantastic" and Greg Proops says that he is "tremendous".
Lee gigs all over the country for many of the major comedy bookers and clubs including The Stand, The Glee Club, Manford’s, Jongleurs, and The Frog and Bucket as well as many independent clubs and nights including Rob Riley, Ten Feet Tall, Funhouse Comedy, Bottle Rocket Comedy, Hilarious Comedy, Breakneck Comedy and Abnormally Funny People.
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 Britain's Got Talent, America's Got Talent: The Champions, Live At The Apollo, the Royal Variety Performance, his own Sky comedy short, Comedy Central, BBC One's The One Show, The One Show's Edinburgh showcase, and Scot Squad.

He has performed 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.
