“Bil Lepp – think Jeff Foxworthy with the comedic patience of Bill Cosby… It would be very difficult… to discern the structural difference between Lepp’s antic hunting story and Woody Allen’s classic “I shot a moose once” tale.” — Lou Harry, Indianapolis Business Journal
“Lepp is a side-splittingly funny man” — The Smithsonian Center for Folk Life
“He’s terrific…fantastic. He’s a good one.” — Michael Feldman, Whad’ya Know
“Bil Lepp is one of the funniest men I have ever heard and what’s so amazing about Bil is that he makes you believe those wild stories he tells.” — Kathryn Tucker Windham
