“Join award-winning stars of stand up, Lost Voice Guy, Desiree Burch and Larry Dean for a night of outstanding comedy

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. A performer since 2012 he came to prominence as the 2018 winner of Britain’s Got Talent.
The Newcastle funny man, whose cerebral palsy affects his ability to speak, uses a voice synthesiser for his act making him the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid.

She has delighted audiences on the BBC's Have I Got News For YouLive at the ApolloThe Mash Report and Channel 4's 8 Out Of 10 Cats. Her past two solo Edinburgh Shows - This is Evolution and Unf*ckable have been sell out hits and both transferred to London's Soho Theatre.
