Praise

“Lee Camp’s book Bullet Points and Punch Lines is profound, compelling, and truly hilarious. He has the best comedic mind I’ve seen since Lenny Bruce, and he combines it with important journalism. I can’t recommend this book enough.”
—Robert Scheer, founder of Truthdig

“Lee Camp is a rare prophetic voice in a field of formulaic blowhards and political opportunists. His writing showcases his unique ability to tear our political establishment to shreds and to then smash those shreds with a righteous hammer until we see the elite forces that rule our lives in their truest form—as an utterly hilarious farce of bipartisan idiocy.”
—Max Blumenthal, author of Goliath

“One of a handful keeping my father’s torch lit.”
—Kelly Carlin (George Carlin’s daughter)

“Lee Camp has found the hole in America’s brain where reason has been replaced by Walmart. Lee’s rants channel the gunk oozing out. You have to admit, that’s why he’s so fucking funny.”
—Greg Palast

“Like Jon Stewart of The Daily Show but with sharper teeth.” 

The Herald

“Camp’s show is a masterclass in politically driven comedy. Razor-sharp, witty, acerbic, and somewhat off-the-wall at times, he delivers his on-point political and social messages with the biggest dollop of humor going.” 

—Steven Topple, Canary UK

“For those comedy fans still in mourning for Bill Hicks, you’ll find plenty to enjoy in the work of DC-born stand-up Lee Camp. Like Hicks, Camp has a visceral disregard for big business and big politics, and speaks his mind on everything from abortion rights to the evils of the modern media. However, where Hicks was more of a commentator who stayed above the fray, Camp is much closer to British activist-comics like Mark Thomas, a real-life serial protester.”
