I'm delighted to announce that my search for a Geordie accent for my iPad has been a success. And I'd like to say a big thank you to voice over artist, Dan Pye, for lending me his voice!
In my search to find the perfect Geordie accent, I have spent the last month listening to almost 500 potential donors from across the Newcastle area. They were each asked to read a short extract from my book, I’m Only In It For The Parking. I then listened to each entry in turn in order to select the voice that I felt best suited myself.
I was overwhelmed by the response from my fellow Geordies, and it made the job of choosing the right voice very difficult. And I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to send a recording of their voice.
But, in the end, Dan’s voice was the one that I kept coming back too and listening to over and over again. I just thought it sounded quite upbeat and friendly. Which is definitely an advantage when you’re a comedian. But I also thought it sounded similar to my family as well. my family are from Consett in County Durham, so I’d like to sound as close as I can to that. And I think that Dan's voice fits the bill perfectly. Thankfully, my family agreed with my choice too.
I can’t wait to get started on the project with Dan and CereProc, and I look forward to you all hearing my new Geordie accent soon.
And, if you can't wait that long, here's Dan reading an extract from my book....

Spending my Friday night watching @LostVoiceGuy: I’m Only in it for the Parking on @ITVX.
How are you lot spending your Friday night?
Just had a lovely chat with a genuinely enthusiastic @Waterstones staff member about wanting a “Disability” section - if we can fill a shelf then he reckons we can have a section.
So, recommendations of #disabled #NonFiction below please, let’s give them a shelf’s worth! https://twitter.com/DrHannahBB/status/1610262713132785668
One day, I want to roll into a bookshop and find a “Disability” section alongside Feminism, Race and LGBTQ sections.
And I want it to be on a reachable shelf.
My son lost a tooth last night but I didn't have any cash so I had to think fast
Good luck with this!

Bloke says I can’t handle the banter but then blocks me why I give some banter back 😂 https://twitter.com/GeordieCorpse/status/1612030064782106628
7 years late to the party but I’m loving the @QuicklyKevin podcast! Finally a reason to tell people that when I went to Disney World in the 90s, people kept calling me Albert the whole time, just because I had ‘Albert, 27’ on my back…
Mate, I could have scored that…
Joelinton sprays a pass out to Chris Wood (Newcastle Utd), but he produces a poor effort from inside the box which goes high over the bar.
Not going to lie, I loved ‘Hawking In The Air’ during my Christmas special. My face says it all 😂
Anyone spare a couple of pounds to get this little lad a special needs pushchair, if you have no spare pennies perhaps you consider a #RT #SharingIsCaring #HappyNewYear2023
Help fund a special need pushchair for Harry, organized by Ailsa Hindhaugh
I am fundraising to enable us to buy an adapted pushchair for my son, Ha… Ailsa Hindhaugh needs your support ...
FFS, Ticketmaster 😂 ... See MoreSee Less
I laughed way too hard at that! 😂😂😂 Steps are our enemy!!! But 5, 6, 7, 8 was OK, I suppose! 🤦🏼♀️😂 xx
Ticketmaster clearly tripped themselves up there!
The tickets may be ‘easier’ to buy but there is never enough wheelchair space for demand and don’t even let me start on getting venues to provide sign language interpreters! Chasing accessible tickets for events is almost a full time job!
Did you watch the apprentice this week….. 🙄😳 omfg. Not an ounce of life experience between them.
Probably still the same 🤣
The irony could fuel a city.
With equally sized ramp access too? 😁
Today I found this ramp… got to the top of it, to find 3 or 4 steps down 🤣👩🏻🦼
That’s ableds for you.
Had to laugh.
Fucking gold 🤣 I love your sense of humour
Shai Haze I can’t 🤣
Hey maybe you might have your own Gundam. Lol
Stephen Jamieson 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Lauren Garvey 🤣🤣🤣
Hannah Jane 🤣🤣🤣
Marlena May Katene
Sylvie Wickens lol

Any plans to bring it to TV?
Oh great, I love that

Your next show should be Alexa Writes All My Jokes. Funny exchange, hilarious accusation!
Paul James Belk one to watch xx
Fantastic news ty
I like the Lost Voice Guy he is very Good
Congratulations, Lee! ❤
Dunno about 'craic' but the one on the left has admitted to sniffing plenty 😮
I'm American, I had no idea what craic was... had to Google it
Loved it. ❤️🥳🎉🤘
Btw I don't have WhatsApp anymore only reason I haven't replied haha
Nice one love it
Seriously …why 60 minutes only lasting 30minutes ??
Whats it like being next to Harry lol xx
I will tomorrow
OK, I admit it! Alexa writes all my jokes 😂 ... See MoreSee Less
Oh, this changes everything! That means Stephen Hawking wasn't really clever - he got it all from Google!!! 🤣😂
Next he'll be saying that musicians pre write their songs! x
Good Morning Lee! You obviously have a much more intelligent Alexa than I do. Mine can’t even find the right radio station, never mind tell me a good joke!
The Geordie isn’t funny, just sarcastic and looking for attention. You’ve done a wonderful thing by not being a victim and making the most of your life. We love you!
He is just jealous of you Lee. Bullies like him are not worth bothering about. We all love you and your jokes. Keep up the good work and I hope that I get the chance to meet you again. Also I hope you get to do more telly work as your show at Christmas was fantastic xxx 💖🤗
Tbh the fact that he keeps coming back on your Twitter does demonstrate that jokes do just randomly appear on your iPad 😜
You have been very motivational for my nonverbal son. He’s an adult now and has been using a communication device (an iPad and uses the Touch Chat App right now but started off with a different device). He’s done a few speeches and presentations with it in his life. Keep it up.
… even he can say ‘Alexa tell me a joke!’🤷♀️ but you can’t without your trusty aid! He doesn’t realise has lack of cognitive ability to comprehend - sad really… Keep on keeping on Lee x
When Lost Voice Guy meets Lost Brain Guy.
I'm so glad that he couldn't get to you with his awful comments! he doesn't understand talent and is jealous of you! You're awesome and you know it! Keep being you x
What a bell end haha you’ll have to ‘pre-write’ some come backs for incase he comes and heckles lol
You are star Lee. Geordie's second name speaks for him. I don't expect his brain to be functioning.
He obviously believes that comedians turn up for a stand up gig and just stand on the stage and banter…!! 🙄 Not only was he rude to you - he disrespected every comedian who has lost sleep about writing material for a gig or tour! 🤦🏻♀️
Poo on him. I love you. Watched you win BBT and hope you come to America I would love to see you in person.
OMG, I used to have to load words and program phrases into this type of equipment or apps. It takes a crap ton of time. No one knows until they have to use it. You rock!
Could you post a link to this magical iPad which does your job for you because I could do with one of those!
This person is horrific. Also he knows nothing about comedians and their craft: jokes and sets are written, rewritten and ditched and whole sets take ages to form. They just look effortless but they’re far from it!
Geordiecorpse gutted that no one finds him funny 😂
Bless him. He's so desperate for someone to laugh at his "press play" line.
I ❤️ Alexa .. 😂.. you got this in hand Lee … you are so funny as a person this plum didn’t make me laugh at all .. Lee 1 tosser 0 😂😂
Doesn't he realise you have to pre write all your material, you can't just type as you go, how long would the gigs be LOL Book this comedian as your warm up act and see how many laughs he gets!
You know you've made it big when you have unnecessary haters digging into the roots of nonsense to harass you with baseless foolishness.
Keep on doing what you're doing and being you, I think your jokes are hilarious, You always make me laugh Lost Voice Guy ❤️👍Xx
I dealt with one of these today too. I’ll never understand how people become this entitled to truly believe they’re right about something not about them.
His level of ignorance is staggering!! People like that aren't worth the stress, needs to go educate himself forget the negativity you bring so much more in positivity, laughter and awareness / bringing people together ❤ Keep doing what you do 🙌🙌🎉🕺
Not going to lie, I loved ‘Hawking In The Air’ during my Christmas special. My face says it all 😂
Catch up now on ITVX ... See MoreSee Less
Lee, do you write the funnies or do you have a team?? The Xmas special was brilliant!!
I have aspurgers and honestly it's really great to see that someone's making the best out of their life You're one of the many people I look up to for comedy. I actually practice comedy at home and I hope to be a stand-up comedian.
Bless ya living life to the fullest with cerebral palsy showing ppl like my 11 Yr old son who has cp that great things can be achieved 💯 👌 x
I love this! Seeing you floating about having fun in the air makes me smile 😃 reminds me of The Snowman. You could do an act together ⛄ + Lee 😁 Come on ITV get LVG on a weekly show. He brings joy and laughter to the screen xx

My real accent is…. ... See MoreSee Less
I think apart from Australia they all sound authentic but I don't think any of them are delivered by him. I thought you had now updated from RP to an accent?
The Leicester accent is really bad and nowhere near.
Hahahaha! (that American accent is atrocious.)
Defo not Scottish lol
No bleeding Aussie lmfao
Chris Sharples 🤣🤣🤣
He's lying he's from Zimbabwe
Everything besides Irish and American sounded English lol
Your welsh accent sounds nothing Welsh lol
Not anymore bonny lad xx
Well that's coffee spat out everywhere....
I shouldn't laugh but wow 🤣

Lol... hope everyone had a great time. Now I've gotta get me one of those T-shirts!
Awesome stuff, I hope everyone had a great time. I really enjoyed your comedy club
Hi I am Henry and I can’t seem to find you or your programs here in the United States and I even went to Facebook and YouTube to find out ways to watch you. I know you have a Christmas 2022 out but the link doesn’t work here in California. If you can tell me where I sign up and watch you live or on some sort of paid service, I would appreciate it. I am 59 years old and I think you’re very funny. I like when I see your YouTube videos they make me laugh. So if you have any links? Can you please tell me? Sent from my iPhone
Woo hoo! Top Fan! 😁
