Following the unprecedented success of his appearance on the final of Britain’s Got Talent 2018, BBC New Comedy Award winner and star and writer of BBC Radio 4’s comedy series, Ability, Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) is setting out on a tour of the UK.
He may not be able to talk but he definitely has something to say and his comedy will leave you speechless.
Lee is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid and made his first stand-up appearance in February 2012. He has performed in some of the UK’s most popular comedy venues as well as in solo shows at festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe, the Brighton Fringe, Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival, Nottingham Comedy Festival and Liverpool Comedy Festival.
As well as winning Britain’s Got Talent this year (the first comedian to do so), Lee also won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014 and his TV and Radio credits have included The One Show (BBC One), Voice Of The People (BBC Three), BBC At The Edinburgh Festivals (BBC iPlayer). Ability – the Radio 4 series that Lee stars in and co-wrote with Katherine Jakeways – has just been recommissioned for a second series.
Please note that tickets are limited to two per person.
Our Monday night performance will be BSL interpreted by Donna Ruane. If you would like to book seats with a clear sightline for BSL interpretation please the email the Box Office or call 01603 598598. For more details about Accessibility at the Playhouse, please click here.
