Lee Ridley known as Lost Voice Guy is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid. He made his first stand-up appearance in February 2012 and took his first ever solo show to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013. He has performed a show there every year since. As well as being the first comedian to win Britain’s Got Talent in 2018, Lee also won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014 and has appeared on some of the country’s most popular TV shows including The One Show, This Morning, Lorraine and BBC Breakfast.

He has performed for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on The Royal Variety Performance, appeared on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions, America’s Got Talent: The Champions, Live At The Apollo, Comic Relief, The Last Leg, The Now Show, Question Team, Comedians Giving Lectures and Pointless Celebrities. He has also just finished filming the third series of BBC3’s Jerk.

Lee has travelled the UK extensively with his last two tours (I’m Only In It For The Parking and Cerebral LOL-sy) which lead to him winning Ents24 Hardest Working Comedian Award in 2019.

The fourth series of Lee’s popular Radio 4 sitcom, Ability, which he co-writes and in which he also stars, has just been commissioned and his debut book, I’m Only In It For The Parking – a humorous autobiographical look at disability and the way we approach it – was published in paperback in 2021.

Lee’s Christmas special – Christmas Comedy Club with Lost Voice Guy – aired on ITV on Christmas Eve 2021. It was such a success that it has been recommissioned and the new show will be transmitted this Christmas Eve.

Lee is an Ambassador for the charity Scope and is also a patron of Smile For Life, Find A Voice, Communication Matters, The Scott-Morgan Foundation and The Sequal Trust.
