All eyes were in the Britan’s Got Talent 2018 last night. The anticipation who is winning the show kept the fans wondering. Lee Ridley performing under the Lost Voice Guy is the award-winning English standup comedian.
The final was a tense showdown between Ridley, fellow comedian Robert White and Donchez Dacres. Lee Ridley has captured the hearts of people with his amazing humorous talent.
Even though an incredible number of acts were performed by each of the competitors, no one could beat the heartwarming charm of ‘Lost Voice Guy.’
Lee Ridley was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 6 months old and has been unable to speak his whole life. He is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid during his shows.
The stand-up comedian started doing this initially in February, 2012. He said, “It has been going so well that I recently quit my day job to do stand up comedy full time. I write al my jokes and store them on my IR Patton in advance then I hook my iPad up to the sound system in the venue and just tap each joke when I want to say it.”
Continuing, “I mostly concentrate in my disability and the funny side of it I realized that this mad some people feel awkward but I think it helps me because I base it on myself I think I get away with it more.”
The stand-up comedian was extremely nervous while waiting on the stage for the results to be read out by Dec. The auditorium was applauding loudly when his name was called.
Grabbing the mic when he ran up on stage, Simon Cowell congratulated Ridley and said it was incredibly deserved while also congratulating Dec for the amazing work on presenting the show.

Only earlier this week, Ridley suffered a fall at the hotel in which he was staying, but was admitted he would complete the final despite his injuries.
He wrote at the time:
This is why Lost Balance Guy never made it onto BGT. Don’t worry though, it was only a trip. I’ll be match fit for the final on Sunday!
Absolutely thrilled that Lost Voice Guy won Britain’s Got Talent! 🙌🏻

Speaking to The Sun, he added:
“After such an amazing night in my semi-final, I tripped over when I got back to my hotel on Monday night.”
“Lost Voice Guy became Lost Balance Guy for a moment. Don’t worry though, I’m feeling fine again now and am looking forward to the final.”
Congratulation, Lee! MetDaan hopes this is just the beginning of a successful career as a stand-up comedian.
