Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
Winner of TV show Britain’s Got Talent, Lost Voice Guy appeared at Always Be Comedy in January 2019. Lee Ridley is severely disabled, unable to speak and so he communicates through and programs a voice synthesiser. The device’s same tone of voice makes what he types funny in itself and Ridley’s act is made up of self depreciation which he uses on stage to brilliant effect. When he performed the ten-minute set, he included inspired audience participation and some extremely cutting and very funny stories involving the challenges of daily life.
