WHO IS THIS 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 the BBC New Comedy Award 2014 and has been commissioned to write a sitcom for BBC Radio 4, which is titled 'Ability'. This is due to be broadcast in 2018. 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 has gigged all over the UK at places like The Stand, Manford’s Comedy Club, Jongleurs, The Frog and Bucket, The Glee Club, The Comedy Store as well as many independent clubs. He has featured on the BBCCNNThe IndependentThe Sun and The Mail on Sunday. An article about him in The Guardian said that finding humour in strange places was one of his strengths. His first comedy sketch premièred in December 2012.

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 BBC One’s The One Show, The One Show’s Edinburgh showcase, and Scot Squad. Watch these on his showreel page. You can also listen to his radio appearances on Soundcloud.

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.

He is also a patron of Smile For Life Children's CharityFind A Voice,Communication Matters and The Sequal Trust.

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!

With fava beans and a nice Chianti?

Did you bring the Chianti?

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

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 ❤️
