No shows in Glasgow, or Edinburgh.🙏

You need to come to glasgow Lee x

Lee I’m just in the middle of watching your Christmas Eve show on iTV. Your fabulous. Hope this is the start of more tv appearances for you. Your smashing it lee xxx❤️❤️❤️

I can’t wait to see you in Aberdeen Lee fingers crossed hoping your show will go ahead 👌

Enjoy! Sad you're not coming anywhere near Anglesey but that's what I get for moving to an island closer to Dublin than Manchester.

I wish you could tour USA I’d love to see you do a live show

A pity Austria isn't on the tour list... I'd love to watch one of your shows... 🤗

Rather disappointed that you're not coming to the South as in Bournemouth/Southampton/New Forest! Forest Arts in New Milton is a regular on the warm up comedy tours! 😃

NZ tour would be fab … in need of your humour down under.

Boom, tickets booked. Can't wait to see you in Wolverhampton!

Cp rocks I have it too and your amazing 😘

We people in Canada love you Especially Edmonton Alberta 😉😉 Canadian tour Perhaps?

No Glasgow dates

Had tickets booked since last Christmas!! Cannot wait!! Xxx

Cant wait to see u again in Barnard castle 🙂

Love the title. I wish!

I have CP too. Went on a date last week and hadn't told him about the cp. His face when i pulled into the disabled bay was 1 thing. Was quite another when I got out and said, 'oh I forgot to tell you, I'm a cripple!' Haha!

No dates on the south coast other than the island?

when are you appearing in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival? and can you have an Auslan interpreter with you 🙂 [edit: added request]

as a DWP prisoner, u make me piss my pants …. be adding that to the renewal form 🤣

Just got ours for Leeds can't wait x

As someone who has cerebral palsy herself I really admire lost voice guy

No coming to Glasgow?

Right. Have to put this in my diary

Milton Keynes? We love our LVG in MK. Pretty please?!! 🙏
