Summary

Please note: contains strong language and adult content.

Winner of Britain’s Got Talent and the BBC New Comedy Awards, with his own sitcom and book deal under his belt... Lost Voice Guy’s career has gone stratospheric.

Lost 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....

Lots of funny jokes!😂😂😂😂😂

His sarcasm is awesome. But it can get a bit boring to listen to it all in one go. I enjoyed it in chunks of 15min.

A performance truly masterful!

Having never watched a Lost Voice Guy gig before, or watched Britains Got Talent. I wondered... how can a guy without a voice completely control an audience and win massive competitions?

Listen and learn. Ridley delivers a performance truly masterful! I was crying with laughter from start to finish!

Wow total u-turn

Bad language from the outset was a real turn off for me and the wife. We loved him in BGT for just being him and his humour. Disappointed.

lost the crowd...forgot its meant to be a comedy!

he lost the crowd...forgot its meant to be a comedy! the first half is OK but the second half seems to be more about how he pushed his girlfriend away and feels bad about it...made it hard to listen too.

Really funny and thought provoking

I didn't know what to expect as I hadn't heard of Lost Voice Guy before and legit this was brilliant. Lee was really funny and brutally honest, as well as being highly entertaining, he really helped me understand the challenges disabled people face in day to day life in ways I wouldn't have ever thought of. Thank you for teaching me.

Excellent & Quick witted!

I love that Lee Ridley states it as is for our disabled community. He is funny, talented and makes me laugh even when the audience went a little quiet. Is that because I'm disabled as is all my family and we have a dark sense of humour too.

I love that he touches on issues that others would not because it can be surreal how stupid some people are when it comes to attitude. This just shows that being disabled is actually made harder by society and government but it's obvious that ignorance and stigma is out there. We have so many stories that would raise eyebrows but we laugh it off sometimes.

The voice is monotone but what he might come out with is definitely what keeps you listening as he has you belly laughing. He says he's not an inspiration but I disagree as it takes a lot of courage to get up, do comedy and be good at it. It's not because he is disabled, that's just a condition and not a definition of who he is.

All my families and friends who are disabled all have dark humour, quick wit and laugh a lot. It keeps us going and we need more Lee Ridley's in comedy!

OK

Listened to his set, got bored with the interview with Ross Noble.

It was quite good but didn't make me want to hear any more I'm afraid
