I'm Only In It For The Parking: Lee Ridley (Lost Voice Guy), Jonny Awsum
Winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2018, BBC New Comedy Award winner and star and writer of BBC Radio 4’s comedy series, Ability, 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.
Lee is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid and made his first stand-up appearance in February 2012. He has performed in some of the UK’s most popular comedy venues as well as in solo shows at festivals including Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Glasgow International, Leicester, Nottingham and Liverpool Comedy Festivals.
He won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014 and his TV and Radio credits have included: The One Show (BBC One), Voice Of The People (BBC Three), BBC At The Edinburgh Festival (BBC iPlayer), Ability (Radio 4) and, of course, Britain’s Got Talent (ITV).
BGT 2018 winner Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy, is disabled but not silent. Born with Cerebral Palsy, complications at birth resulted in Lee losing his ability to speak. Undaunted, Lee started performing stand up comedy in 2012 using an iPad tablet computer, and after an unprecedented meteoric rise and publicity from local and national press, is now headlining comedy clubs across the country.
'A wondeful comedian' (Matt Lucas)
'A very funny guy' (Ross Noble).
