Lost Voice Guy: Inspiration Porn (Lost Voice Guy / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Saturday 12 August 2017

Lost Voice Guy is Lee Ridley, who delivers the audio content of his show through a communication aid, as his Cerebral Palsy makes him unable to talk. Following on from his ‘Disability For Dunces’ show, this latest offering feels more personal and focuses on a recent relationship. He weaves this around amusing but poignant observations, including being compared to the “super-human” Paralympians and the government’s approach to people with disabilities. The highlight is a version of Bruce Forsyth’s ‘Play Your Cards Right’, but throughout the show Ridley demonstrates an ability to laugh at himself and allows the audience to laugh with – and at – him. This makes ‘Inspiration Porn’ an entertaining and thought-provoking hour on how people with disabilities are seen by others.

The Stand Comedy Club, until 27 Aug.
tw rating 4/5 | [Richard Levinson]
