Come and meet Lee Ridley aka Lost Voice Guy signing I’m Only In It For The Parking at WHSmith Metro Centre, Gateshead NE11 9YR on Monday 13 May from 12.30pm.
What’s the worst thing about being disabled? Is it the shameless staring? Is it that people assume you’re a bit thick because you can’t speak? Or is it the fact that your friends always take you to theme parks just so they can jump the queues? In fact, it’s the stupid questions that really rile Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy. And over the years he’s been inundated with them, from people who have failed to engage their brains before opening their mouths. Which is where I’m Only In It for the Parking comes in - think of it as a disabled FAQ, with funny (sometimes painfully funny) stories from Lee’s less-ordinary life. If you think you know what it’s like to be disabled, prepare to have your perceptions skewered by the much-loved Britain’s Got Talent winner, the brilliant stand-up who struggles to stand up, the Geordie without the accent. And before you ask … no, he really can’t speak at all. But he definitely has something to say.
Lee Ridley aka Lost Voice Guy
Lee Ridley is also known as Lost Voice Guy. He is a stand-up comedian, writer and tech geek based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Lee developed cerebral palsy as a baby and communicates using an iPad. A bit like Stephen Hawking. Though, in Lee’s words, better looking. He is a BBC New Comedy Award winner, his Radio 4 sitcom Ability has had two series and counting, and he is the winner of 2018’s Britain’s Got Talent. Lee has appeared on Live at the Apollo and at The Royal Variety Performance, sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and had his first nationwide tour in 2019. He is also an ambassador for Scope. I’m Only In It for the Parking is his first book.
