Overview

In Inept: Impaired: Overwhelmed, West Virginia tall tale-teller Bil Lepp keeps a smile on your face as he regales you with stories about catfish-grabblin’, summer camp, moose-trappin’, and a mishap with the FBI. Being a five-time winner of the West Virginia Liars’ Contest makes Lepp a natural for his two jobs: a state employee and a Methodist minister. From childhood to adulthood, Bil’s wacky adventures often include his best friend, Skeeter Barth. Whether you find that Bil and Skeeter are trouble-makers or that trouble just follows them around, you’ll be laughing as they test smelly catfish-bait; get stopped by the sheriff; struggle with rock climbing; and get attacked by woodpeckers, catfish, and moose. Bil is often accompanied by his super-dog Buck, “whose mother was a German shepherd and whose father was a prolific and extremely determined basset hound.” With Buck’s help, Bil tries kayak dogsledding on the New River; stops up the Bluestone Dam; and takes the Monster Stick out for one last wild ride.

"Bil Lepp stars his gun-shy hunting dog Buck in a tale that grows taller and
taller--and then even taller. Listeners are howling with the hilarity,
tears of laughter streaking faces split with wide-mouth grins. When the
young teller wraps up his story in one more burst of implausibility, the
audience leaps to its feet, cheering. All hail the king!"
--Mary Ellen Botter, The Dallas Morning News

Bil Lepp first entered the West Virginia Liars contest in 1990, and has taken first place five times. Residing in Charleston, WV, Bil is a Methodist minister, a freelance magazine writer, and a nationally known storyteller.
