Lost Voice Guy to host Radio 4 showcase of comedians with disabilities.

The Thirteen Million Club will feature a line-up that, alongside the former Britain's Got Talent winner, aka Lee Ridley, includes Tanyalee DavisDon BiswasJamie MacDonald and Jess Thom.

The 30-minute show will air next month, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, which criminalised discrimination against disabled people in many areas of life.

Recording online on November 4th, the show is named after the finding by the charity Scope that more than 13 million people in the UK identify as having some kind of disability, yet 50 percent of British adults say they don't know any disabled people.
The Thirteen Million Club has been commissioned as part of the BBC's Exploring Disability Through Art series, which also features comedian and actor Liz Carr delivering a 15-minute dramatic monologue as part of Crip Tales on BBC Four, a six-part series curated by Mat Fraser, capturing a pivotal moment or event that forever changes the central character.
Tickets to be in the audience for The Thirteen Million Club, which will be BSL interpreted, are available from lostintv.com
