“I am full of shit.”

Bill-225x300Bill might not have won his original slam; however, he did walk away with the audience’s heart when he and his friends drove from Florida to North Carolina to go skiing. They are poor college students and cannot afford a hotel room. So, what does Bill promise to do? Seduce snow bunnies so that they can have a place to sleep. Watch Bill fake his way through his stories below! 

Bill will be competing in our Fall Grand Slam on November 10Click here for more information and to buy tickets.

What was the last thing you won (StorySlam not included)?
I wont the three-legged race in 5th grade on field day.

In honor of FPA’s 10 year anniversary in 2011 – Tell us a story in 10 words.
My cat lost a tooth. Mortality is for real, kids.

What would your dream theme be for a Storyslam? What story would you tell?
School days. My story would be about seeing the classroom from the
other side, and how I now realize how unimpressive I must have looked
back then.

Who do you know that tells the worst (or best) stories?
My father tells terrible stories about how tough retirement will be if
one doesn’t properly allocate funds to one’s IRA portfolio.

Why are you a good storyteller? (aka why should your competitors be scared?)
Storytelling is about style, yeah, but experiences are important too.
I have done more dumb things than anyone else I know.
