Renowned Storyteller Returns to Fort Myers

Bil Lepp

Bil Lepp

Bil Lepp, known as “The king of the tall tale” and one of the world’s funniest storytellers, will conduct a workshop from 7 to 9 p.m., February 10, and perform from 2 and 7 p.m., February 11, at Alliance for the Arts, in Fort Myers. The outrageous and humorous tall tales delivered by the former minister have earned the appreciation of listeners of all ages and walks of life, as well as many awards, including the Storytelling Circle of Excellence Award, the Parents’ Choice Gold Award for his first children’s book and the West Virginia Liars’ Contest five times.  

According to Duke Divinity magazine, “With Lepp, the sorry, low-down lie becomes a grand and glorious creation, a verbal sculpture in which a hundred small fibs, stretchers, falsehoods and prevarications are piled together, shaped and molded into one stunning, awe-inspiring cathedral of flapdoodle and bull.”

His first-ever booking at the Alliance last February sold out and a matinee performance was added and sold to near capacity. He has performed 13 times at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and on Comedy Central.

Cost: $10 for members or $15 for non-members for performance. $15 for members and $20 for non-members for the workshop. Location: 10091 McGregor Blvd. For more information or to register, call 239-939-2787 or visit ArtInLee.org or LeppStorytelling.com.
