Comic Relief Sex Change...

When I heard that Giving Voice Celebrity Ambassador of the Year (2012), Lost Voice Guy, was going to be dressing as Lost Voice Girl for Comic Relief I knew I had to go! I booked tickets online for my friend and I and was excited for my first trip to The Stand, Newcastle. We were both wearing pink jeans and our Giving Voice badges to support GV, and Lee on the night!
For those of you who don’t know, Lost Voice Guy is a stand up comedian who uses a communication aid for his voice, as he has cerebral palsy and is unable to speak. I’ve seen him a number of times and he always gets the audience laughing.  I was really looking forward to seeing him dress as a woman in aid of Comic Relief.
Every Sunday at The Stand is Gavin Webster’s Northumbrian Assembly, and Lost Voice Girl was part of this, along with another comedian. Gavin was really funny and kept the audience entertained from start to finish. He told us about the events of the night, including Bingo and a free meat draw. My friend, Rach, saw the tins of meat and in jest told me she’d like to win the hotdogs!
The whole night was great fun and Lost Voice Girl didn’t disappoint! I’d heard some of the jokes in previous sets but they always make me laugh and it was still a bit different as they were in the voice of a girl (which made a more convincing act, if the dress and wig weren’t enough to prove we were watching a girl on stage! J)
Rach and I had a really good night and she was even lucky enough to win the meat draw  (be careful what you wish for, it might come true! Haha) We carried Rach’s meat all the way back to Ashington/Newbiggin in the snow and on the metro and it made for an entertaining journey home! I would definitely return to The Stand as the atmosphere was good and the comedy funny (which is what you expect from a comedy club!)
Rach and her meat!
Lost Voice Girl raised a fantastic £350 for Comic Relief, check out the blog/watch the video from the night here.
