AN amazing stand-up comedian, who cannot speak, headlines this Sunday’s edition of the Lancaster Comedy Club.

Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy, is disabled, but not silent.

Born with cerebral palsy, complications at birth resulted in Lee losing the ability to speak.

Undaunted, Lee started performing stand-up comedy earlier this year using an iPad tablet computer and, after an unprecedented meteoric rise and publicity from local and national press, including Sky, BBC, ITV, The Sun and CNN, is now appearing at comedy clubs across the country.

Also appearing at the weekly event at The Borough in Dalton Square will be Simon Bligh and Neil McFarlaine. The MC is Phil Ellis.

Admission is £9 on the door, £7 in advance from the venue up until 4pm on the day of the show, or online at {http:// www.lancastercomedy.co.uk|www.lancastercomedy.co.uk.}

Doors open at 7.30pm and the show is at 8pm.
