“It’s very hard to see yourself as normal when society doesn’t see you that way. I think disabled people are very underrepresented in the media.”

Lee Ridley is an award-winning comedian who has cerebral palsy, using a synthetic voice on his iPad to talk. He’s now on a mission to normalise disability.

What they said…

I love this guy. I was in bed watching it with my 4 year old and he asked me why he couldn’t speak. I said that was just how he is and some people can’t see or hear but this guy couldn’t talk. It opened up a doorway for me to talk about other disabilities with him. He is just fab. “ Claire Windsor

“A really fab guy and a breath of fresh air. He has helped so many people with disabilities by showing anything is achievable“ Buster Britton

“Inspirational guy, big personality and so open minded about his disability, about time people with disabilities were in the media like this” – Eileen Mcvie
