Former Britain's Got Talent winner Lee Ridley, known as Lost Voice Guy, has spoken about the journey he has been on during a tour of Wales.
The standup comedian is performing in The Arts Centre in Pontardawe on Thursday night.
The 38-year-old funnyman, from Consett near Newcastle, has cerebral palsy, using a machine called a Lightwriter to speak.
But his disability did not stand in the way of his hilarious stand-up act, in which he uses pre-recorded sentences on a computer, becoming the first comedian to Britain's Got Talent in its 12-series history.
During the show he was described as "incredibly talented" by Simon Cowell, and "utterly hilarious" by fellow judge David Walliams.
He told ITV Cymru Wales he was delighted to be in Wales and that audiences here are "always up for a good night".
He said winning Britain's Got Talent has had a confidence boosting effect on him.
