Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Lost Voice Guy, Simon Lomas, and host Pete Otway
Lee Ridley (Lost Voice Guy)
Britain's Got Talent winner - 2018
Lee Ridley AKA Lost Voice Guy may not be able to talk, but he definitely has something to say, and his comedy will leave you speechless.
Since making his first stand up performance in February 2012, Ridley has gained quite the reputation for being both very funny and very unique.
He's gigged across the country performing at clubs and small venues, and has warmed up at Tour shows for the likes of Ross Noble, Patrick Kielty, Jason Manford and Jason Cook.
In 2014 he won the BBC New Comedy Award and went on to became the winner of ITV’s highest rated show, Britain’s Got Talent, in 2018; the first comic ever to win the show.
Lee’s other credits include his own sitcom BBC Radio 4 sitcom, Ability, Live at the Apollo for BBC, and in late 2018 he completed a huge nationwide theatre tour before releasing his debut book in May 2019.
“Funny, personal, occasionally shocking and frequently mischievous” - The Independent
“Finding humour in strange places is one of Lost Voice Guy’s strengths” - The Guardian
“a show that will open your eyes, put fire in your belly and make you laugh guiltily at its frankness and levity” - ★★★★★ - Metro

Winner - Great Yorkshire Fringe New Comedian of the Year 2016

Despite only starting stand up in September 2015, Simon Lomas is already regarded as one of the most refreshing and exciting new acts on the circuit. In August 2017 he performed as part of Just The Tonic's prestigious Big Value Comedy Show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, after racking up a host of new act competition titles.
Definitely one to watch.
“...the writing is strong, efficient and offbeat, with an enviable hit rate” - Chortle
“...it was immediately obvious why there is a buzz about him” - Bruce Dessau
“...sharp and solid joke writing” - The Skinny
Since starting to perform in 2010, Pete Otway has quickly gained momentum, establishing himself as an extremely strong new act. As comfortable and confident as an MC as he is an act, he is booked regularly to do both, and was a recent finalist in the 2012 BBC New Comedy Awards.
With an affable and conversational style, mixed with an energetic stage manner and original writing, Pete is quickly making a name for himself on the UK circuit, and is certainly one to watch.
“Devastatingly funny” - Chortle
“Amiable, cheeky classic stand-up” - Liverpool Echo
“An amazing comedy talent, and we are making sure we are making sure we follow his every move in his ever rising career” - Crispy Comedy Club
