Lost Voice Guy aka Lee Ridley

I'm Only In It for the Parking
  • I'm Only In It for the Parking

    - 'A truly eye-opening book from a fantastic comedian.' ADAM KAY
    - 'Comedy genius... The funniest book I've read in years.' DAVID WALLIAMS

    'I've always seen the funny side of my disability. If I didn't laugh about it, then I'd definitely cry. So, when you look at it from that point of view, maybe it's not all that surprising that it was through comedy that I eventually found my voice.'

    Lee Ridley won the hearts and minds of the nation on Britain's Got Talent. Now the much-loved comedian opens up about what it's like to be him.

    I'm Only In It for the Parking is a wonderful romp through Lee's extraordinary life, by way of the people who like to pray for him, the comparisons with Stephen Hawking, some perilous falls, some epic fails and more information about Lee's private life than you probably need.

    This is the wickedly funny story of the stand-up who struggles to stand up, but who learns to finds his feet. The Geordie without the accent. The entertainer who really can't speak at all, but who has something important to say.

    - 'Hilarious.' THE SUN
    - 'A unique and brilliant comic voice.' ROSS NOBLE

Lee has appeared on Live at the Apollo and at the Royal Variety Performance, sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and had his first nationwide tour in 2019. He is also an ambassador for Scope. I’m Only In It for the Parking is his first book.
