Listen to Lost Voice Guy on Audible

You can now listen to my first book, I'm Only In It For The Parking, along with lots of other content from myself on Audible.

I'm Only In It For The Parking - audiobook 

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.

 

You can also listen to my previous recorded Edinburgh Fringe shows on Audible as well.

Voice Of Choice (2013)

Voice Of ChoiceHaving nothing to say is one thing, having lots to say and being unable to say it is quite another. It has become part of life for Lost Voice Guy but although he can’t talk, he isn’t silent. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a child, he embraces his disability, really breaking down barriers and having a laugh along the way. He uses his iPad to great comic effect to take us on a journey as he tries to make himself heard.

 

 

 

Laughter Is The Worst Medicine (2014)

Laughter Is The Worst MedicineWhen Lost Voice Guy was rushed to hospital during this first ever Edinburgh Fringe, he nearly died. In fact, he became as silent as the ‘P’ in pneumonia and ended up with 99 more realistic problems than Jay Z.

Stuck in bed and miles from home, he began to wonder if laughter really was the best medicine after all. Then he had morphine and he realised it wasn’t. Jesus may walk on water, but Lost Voice Guy runs on batteries. And he recharged and rose again to tell the tale in this new show.

 

 

Disability for Dunces: Volume One (2015)

Disability For Dunces: Vol OneCan you really not talk? Have you considered an exorcism? Are you just in it for the parking? Are you as clever as Stephen Hawking? How do you have sex? Seriously, can you not talk at all?

These are just a few of the bizarre questions that award-winning comedian, Lost Voice Guy, gets asked on a regular basis. Now he’s decided to answer them all for you in this show. Think of it as being like a disabled FAQ for stupid people.

 

 

Inspiration Porn (2018)

Inspiration PornLost Voice Guy – aka Lee Ridley – has a form of cerebral palsy which leaves him unable to speak, but he now performs to sold out crowds using his voice synthesizer app. This set, recorded at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, is one of his most honest, open and hilarious to date. Lee takes on subjects including the perception of disability in the media, government cuts, and the painful reality of dating and love.

This podcast includes an interview with Lee by legendary comedian - and close friend - Ross Noble. Fun fact: the pair first met after Lee challenged him on who could do the best impersonation of Stephen Hawking....

 

 

If you enjoy listening to them, you can also watch them as well. DVD versions are available to purchase in the shop.

Is that the Wish version of you?

Really Quiet Dude

Did it leave you…speechless? 🤭

That's love. The Stand team don't make the effort to take the piss out of folk they don't like.

….what you order Lost Voice Guy from Wish 🤣

Maybe they thought it was temporary ?! 🤪

I have been thinking about this, perhaps you could sell franchises to tribute acts under the "No Voice Man" brand? You'd make a blinking fortune!! "I'm only in it for the parking and the franchise fees"

It's ok, they were expecting a tribute act

Way silent bro

Jack Raine I noticed this when we were waiting for show to start 😂😂

You know you’ve made it when you get your own tribute act!

It could be your superhero name 😉

I thought of...

Wondering what your costume would look like

You are simply amazing!

7/10 for effort but must do better 😉

lol no voice man sponsored by a microphone company - .... lol

They got one word correct. Credit where credit is due.

I saw you there around 2011

Have you got a shortcut for 'for f*** sake' on your keyboard? 😁 😎

Only one star? You should have at least five.

Are you stealing some copycat's dressing room? :-p

the buggers lol gotta laugh though int ya

Four letter words can be tricky lol

Only one star?!!! Shocking!

I know everyone has a different sense of humour. But for me, this is not funny.

If people make you sick, you should cook them longer.

Love you! You always make me laugh!

It's World Cerebral Palsy Day so remember to send your children to school dressed as a disabled person! #worldcerebralpalsyday #worldcpday ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

My daughter has cerebral palsy so she is dressing as a disabled person today and always 😂😂

I'm going to send my kid to school as Helen Keller, she don't listen to me anyway

If I were still at school I'd bunk off and just say I went as an invisible disability

Don't know what's funnier. The joke or those that don't get it, or obviously have never seen you perform 🤣

My son has Down syndrome and dresses as a disabled person everyday 😂

Love this 😂 Needed a little laugh this morning after battling with trying to find a school suitable for our son who has CP. I know my son would find this hilarious.

Done!! This is my amazing son in his awesome chair! ❤️ his sister made no effort at all!

Lost Voice Guy , would it be going too far to send my child as Oscar Pistorius dressed in striped jumpsuit 🤔

My son is sooo committed to World Cerebral Palsy Day he goes to school as a disabled person EVERY day 😂🙈 😂🙈 (laughter is definitely among the best medicines)

I don’t think a disability can be dressed especially if you have learning difficulties To see me I look normal as they say hidden disabilities are not to be made fun of in fact any disabilities are sick to be made fun of

My son is undiagnosed but he's so into this that he goes to school every weekday as a disabled person! I'm super proud to be his mum and he is super embarrassed by me. But I made him in my tummy and I remind him of this all the time! He's in a wheelchair so he can't escape the mummy kisses!!!

Better for children to learn about disabilities. Wheelchairs they can see and not disabilities are obvious. Just teaching children to be considerate to others is enough. Just getting adults to be the same as adults learn from children sometimes

I’m dyslexic and have ADD. As a kid, I guess I could have worn a tee shirt that had Moinca written on it, along with a headband with a squirrel dangling from it? 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣

My daughter has cerebral palsy. She inspires me every day. You inspire everyone with your humour and positive attitude. 💗👏

My boy has CP so sent him as a disabled boy too xx

My beautiful daughter, sadly no longer with us. Remembered everyday, not just today.

My boys autistic nonverbal SPD gdd genetic microduplication you can't tell by looking at him just when he stims jumps about ect whow,d you dress this ????

Absolutely brilliant. My girls have gone to school wearing green.

Always Lee, always… 😉

OMG do some of you not know Lee? This is him a comedian he takes the water out of himself not others! It's a joke! 😂

What a shame, this is the first mention I have seen of this. Have a great day.xx

The way my kids dress themselves, you'd think they were 🤣🤣🤣

😂 luv u Lee just spat my coffee out reading that 💙

Done!!

They have no problem doing that all by themselves ❤️
