Britain's Got Talent winner heads to Barney as part of 2021 UK tour
FOLLOWING the success of his sell out debut tour in 2019 – during which he performed at over 100 UK venues – Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) is heading back out on the road in 2021 to put a smile on the faces of people up and down the country once again – and Barnard Castle has been included.
The Britain’s Got Talent winner will perform at The Witham on Wednesday, March 17, next year.
He will poke fun at his life as a disabled person as he tries to cope with the fame and fortune since his memorable victory. From the highs of meeting 50 per cent of The Chuckle Brothers to the lows of being called “him off The X Factor”, and everything in between.
Lee 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, per- forming there every year until Covid-19 came along.
As well as winning Britain’s Got Talent 2018, he 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.
The third series of Lee’s popular Radio 4 sitcom, Ability, in which he co-writes and stars, will air in spring next year. His debut book, I’m Only In It For The Parking – a humorous autobiographical look at disability and the way we approach it – will be published in paperback March 2021.
Lee is an Ambassador for the charity Scope and is also a patron of Smile For Life, Find A Voice, Communication Matters and The Sequal Trust.
