Order my brand new book ‘I’m Only In It For The Parking’

What’s the worst thing about being disabled? Is it the shameless staring? Is it that people assume you’re a bit thick because you can’t speak? Or is it the fact that your friends always take you to theme parks just so they can jump the queues?

In fact, it’s the stupid questions that really rile Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy. And over the years he’s been inundated with them, from people who have failed to engage their brains before opening their mouths. Which is where I’m Only In It for the Parking comes in - think of it as a disabled FAQ, with funny (sometimes painfully funny) stories from Lee’s less-ordinary life.

If you think you know what it’s like to be disabled, prepare to have your perceptions skewered by the much-loved Britain’s Got Talent winner, the brilliant stand-up who struggles to stand up, the Geordie without the accent. And before you ask … no, he really can’t speak at all. But he definitely has something to say.

Think of it as a disabled FAQ. I've been asked countless stupid questions about my disability over the years, from 'What’s it like to be disabled?' to 'Can you really not speak?' In this book, I will use the best of these questions as a jumping off point to tell funny stories about my less than ordinary life.

Well thanks for that one you made me laugh so much you almost made me choke on my water! 😂

I used to be able to do the "Cashier number 1 please" announcement so good that people would react when in line 😂😂. I can still do the voice the same but I think the person's changed since 🙄😅😅
