Watch: Britain's Got Talent winner Lost Voice Guy brings stand-up to The Black Box

Lost Voice Guy performed his award-winning stand-up comedy set at an intimate Belfast show on Tuesday.

The Britain's Got Talent winner - whose real name is Lee Ridley - took to the stage at The Black Box as part of the Out To Lunch Arts festival.

Ridley, who is unable to speak as a result of complications of cerebral palsy, donned one of his signature slogan t-shirts for his performance which read: "I run better than the government".

The annual Out to Lunch Festival returns to Belfast for its 14th year with a programme jam-packed with even more familiar faces.

The festival showcases live music, comedy, theatre, literature, film, spoken word and hot food to nourish the soul and the belly during the longest, darkest month of the year.

The festival runs from January 4-27, 2019 and will include sets from comedian Nish Kumar, singer Andy Irvine and author Marian Keyes in conversation with Roisin Ingle.

“These are uncertain times in so many ways, but Out to Lunch aims to light up January and with a world class menu of music, comedy, art and film," said Out to Lunch director Sean Kelly.

"Over the past 14 years, our ‘show and lunch’ idea has really captured people’s imagination. Come January 2019, we’ll be on hand to lift spirits and hearts with a month of great food and world class entertainment!”
