Lost Voice Guy

Lee Ridley is the Newcastle-born extraordinary comedian known as Lost Voice Guy. Despite being unable to speak, with his sharp wit and a one-of-a-kind style, Lee has carved a niche for himself in the world of comedy. As the first stand-up comedian to utilise a communication aid, armed with his trusty iPad app, Lost Voice Guy meticulously programs his material, tailoring it to suit the theme and purpose of each event. And the best part? He adapts his performance in real-time, carefully selecting lines based on the audience's reaction. It's a masterful display of comedic talent combined with technological ingenuity.
