This big, blue, wild and groovy creature called YoJo is essentially a seven-foot living cartoon character and was created to perform motivational and educational comedy shows for large groups of children such as elementary schools, festivals or malls.
YoJo is definitely not your simple theme-park character. His personality is MUCH more athletic, animated, and comical. His style of “cartoon personification” is very similar to what a skilled sports mascot performer aims to accomplish. However, YoJo is not a sideshow act at a ballpark ... YoJo is the show! With the help of additional talent and the use of new technologies for sound effects and music, great possibilities arise for hilarious entertainment. We strongly believe that YoJo’s unique style of performing is vaudevillian style comedy for the 21st century.
“In my 30+ years of teaching, I can honestly say that YoJo’s CHOOSE TO READ
program was the most worthwhile assembly I have ever attended. The
students were totally involved, and I believe that they came away inspired
to read more and more. Your organization is to be commended for this program.”
- Dave Button, Baldwin Elementary School, Manassas, VA

“Thank you for your hard work in creating a high energy, comical, and motivating show to enlighten our students. YOJO DESERVES AN OSCAR!”

“When other Principals ask how we get some of the HIGHEST TEST
SCORES in the city, I tell them that YoJo is our secret.”
- James Sasiadek, Principal, Thomas Johnson Elem., Baltimore, MD
