No… seriously he doesn’t have a voice. This isn’t one of those links you see online and think to yourself, “Wow that can’t possibly be true,” and you click on it out of sheer unbelievable curiosity and instead your brought to a video that involves Jell-O, a goat and some dude named Tina.
English comedian Lee Ridley really doesn’t have a voice.
Mr. Ridley has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and has been unable to speak since birth. Which, to him, is but a mere speed bump on the road to his dream (that sounds like some shit my high school guidance counselor would say.)
Instead of accepting defeat, Lee Ridley dons the name “Lost Voice Guy” and storms the stage with his IPad that contains a text-to-voice app, which allows him to communicate his set to his audience. And even more impressive than that…he’s actually funny.
He uses his Ipad as a means of communication and not a cheap gimmick like some lame ass hipster at an open mic (oh look here comes the guy that does stand-up in his wacky top hat! WOCKA WOCKA). Last weekend he performed for a packed house at London and is scheduled to participate in the Edinburgh Comedy Festival later this year.
