Voiceless Comedian Performs His Very First Stand-Up Routine via iPad [video]

Earlier this month Lee Ridley got up on a stage in Sunderland and performed a stand-up comedy routine for the very first time — something that he never expected to do since he can’t actually speak. Ridley suffers from Cerebral Palsy and normally uses a Lightwriter type-to-speech device to replace his missing voice, but on the night of his stand-up debut he swapped it for an iPad because it offered a clearer speaking voice and was easier for copying and pasting pre-written material from his computer.
