Bil Lepp

Bil Lepp is an award winning storyteller, humorist, and writer. A five-time champion of the West Virginia Liars’ Contest, his outrageous tall tales and witty stories are a signature of his repertoire. Bil has become somewhat of a regular on NPR’s Mountain Stage with Larry Groce, from West Virginia Public Radio, and his stories can be heard on Sirius Radio as well. He’s a funny guy, a storyteller with a lot of years of practice, and audiences from fourth graders to retirement communities all find quality entertainment in Bil’s tall tales, and sometimes a little truth in his lies.  He is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award, and his picture book, The King of Little Things, won the PEN/Steven Kroll award.

“[Lepp] goes for the funny bone. He stuffs his hands in his pockets and leans back as he nonchalantly lets drop the zinger to his tale.” – The Boston Globe
