Lost Voice Guy
Following the unprecedented success of his appearance on the final of Britain’s Got Talent 2018, BBC New Comedy Award winner and star and writer of BBC Radio 4’s comedy series, Ability, Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) is setting out on a tour of the UK.

He may not be able to talk but he definitely has something to say and his comedy will leave you speechless.

Lee is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid and made his first stand-up appearance in February 2012. He has performed in some of the UK’s most popular comedy venues as well as in solo shows at festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe, the Brighton Fringe, Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival, Nottingham Comedy Festival and Liverpool Comedy Festival.

As well as winning Britain’s Got Talent this year (the first comedian to do so), Lee also won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014 and his TV and Radio credits have included The One Show (BBC One), Voice Of The People (BBC Three), BBC At The Edinburgh Festivals (BBC iPlayer). Ability – the Radio 4 series that Lee stars in and co-wrote with Katherine Jakeways – has just been recommissioned for a second series.

Darius Davies
Darius is a seasoned performer first cutting his teeth in 2007 in the comedy clubs of New York city. Success quickly followed as Darius won an MTV New Talent contest, opening the door for Darius to strut his stuff on MTV america. Alas due to “visa irregularities” Darius soon found himself back, and uncelebrated in London.

Certain that success would be just as swift, Darius launched himself on the UK comedy scene. In the blink of an eye (four and half years later) Darius found himself gigging regularly up and down the country entertaining the crowds with his high-energy, captivating, and hilarious tales.

Justin Panks
Toting his particular brand of uncompromising ‘Punk-Rock’ comedy, Justin Panks delivers unexpected punchlines and conjures up disturbing mental images that will stay with an audience for a lifetime.

Unapologetically fearless and committed to his cause he wades into the underbelly of everyday life surprising, shocking and delighting audiences with his well crafted jokes disguised as anecdotes.

Like a sufferer of Tourette’s syndrome that has had time to edit and construct his most embarrassing and revealing outbursts before making them public, he creates genuine excitement and generates enough power to to fill any room. This is not an act for the feint of heart.

Martin Westgate
Martin is one of the fresh crop of one-liner comedians, forcing his way onto professional comedy nights like The Stand-Up Club. He brilliantly rinsed David Walliams on Britain’s Got Talent, and is more than capable of stepping away from the jokes and dealing with the audience when needed (be warned!)
