Comedian Lee Ridley to write a book on disability
Stand up comedian Lee Ridley won hearts and minds across the world after he won the top honours at the prestigious Britain’s Got Talent show this year. Now, he is about to bring his story to the world in a book that will be published soon.
The auction for the book was a highly competitive affair, with many publishing houses eager to tell teh inspiring story of Ridley, who has cerebral palsy. The rights were won by TransWorld Publishers.
Ridley uses a communication device to speak and is often asked silly, baseless questions about his disability. In his book, titled I’m Only In It For the Parking, he plans to tackle these silly questions and answer them in his well known humorous style.
Along with this, he will tell the stories of his life and talk about the perceptions regarding disability.
Ridley is celebrated across the world for his comedy routines and has won the BBC New Comedy award and written several TV shows.
