lostvoice19.jpg Guy ‘n’ drolls

We’ve long since known that Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) has the requisite funny chops but the rest of the country also caught on when he won Britain’s Got Talent last year. He’s at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House in February.

I’ve always had a point-of-order with Lost Voice Guy and it’s the “Guy”. Guy? As far as I’m aware he’s from Consett. Shouldn’t he be Lost Voice Bloke or Lost Voice Gadgee? No matter: he’s far too famous to start messing about with his moniker now, especially after scooping top-spot on last year’s Britain’s Got Talent when millions tuned in to see his extraordinary act. He’s one of the first stand-up comics to use a communication aid and was having audiences in stitches as far back as 2012. He honed his act in smaller clubs before going on to support the likes of Patrick Kielty and Ross Noble and then really hit the jackpot with Britain’s Got Talent, which had the judges and watching public all agreeing that he was a rare talent. On his biggest headline tour to date he’s supported by Jonny Awsum who was a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent back in 2017.

Lost Voice Guy, Sunday 17 February, Tyne Theatre & Opera House, Newcastle, 7.30pm, from £17.55. tynetheatreandoperahouse.uk
