Voiceless Comedian Performs Stand-up Routine With Help Of iPad

Lee Ridley, also known as the 'Lost Voice Guy' performed his very first stand-up comedy routine in Sunderland earlier this month - something that he didn't even imagine happening since he can't actually speak.

Ridley has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, and uses a Lightwriter type-to-speech device to speak for him most of the time; but not his show.  He opted, instead, to take an iPad on-stage, as it offered a clearer speaking voice and greater ease of copying and pasting his pre-written material.

In true Apple fashion, the iPad rebooted for no apparent reason the very second Ridley takes to the stage; but after this minor roadbump, the show went down a massive success, both locally and virally, as the story is making it's cycles around the blogs of the world.

We look forward to seeing what more this guy does.  Pretty damn hilarious!
