Lost Voice Guy: Stand-up comedian wins over audience without uttering a word

For a Britain's Got Talent audition, stand-up comedian Lost Voice Guy (aka Lee Ridley) performed a brilliant set without speaking a word. The voiceless 37-year-old British comic used a synthetic voice machine to deliver his jokes which had the audience and judges in stitches.

He writes:

I also have Cerebral Palsy. I have no speech (I use a small machine called a Lightwriter to speak) and I walk with a limp. Don't worry though, you can't catch it from me. It just means that you better not get stuck behind me on the stairs if there's a fire.

Clinically pleasant Invisalign ad dubbed with Bill Burr's ambivalent remarks about having to wear one

This ad, featuring happy people grinning in clinically perfect environments, is immeasurably improved by having its soundtrack replaced by remarks from comedian Bill Burr concerning his experience with the 3D-printed transparent braces. I found my way to it after reading this article about smarmy "free speech grifters" who decry political correctness while supporting the status quo: it leads with a funny anecdote whereby oleaginous creep Bill Maher expects Burr to agree with his anti-PC whining but is instead berated by him.
