Interviews with Joe Camp
“Joe Camp gives the kind of interview journalists dream of. Camp is not only what I call ‘notable and quotable,’ he has a palpable honesty that makes readers, listeners, viewers sit up and take notice. In fact, I told a fellow correspondent that Joe Camp is verbal, visual Velcro.”

“Joe is as nice a guy as I would expect the creator of Benji to be. What a pleasure it was to speak to him for a half hour.”
AM Ocala Live
“Joe Camp is the genuine breath of fresh air Hollywood has needed for years and years. If he’s got any presumptive airs about him, they are as invisible as his ego – remarkable for a true gentleman who’s accomplished all he has on a wing, a prayer and an unbelievable friend named Benji. When you speak with Mr. Camp, you speak with pure class.”
Thor Tolo, Host, “Live From Seattle”, KGNW
“Joe Camp is a terrific interview! Encounter the work of Joe Camp and you’ll have a changed heart.”
Kevin Harris, Morning Host, KWRD-FM Dallas
