I’d like to introduce myself to all of you…

     My Name is William Schober ( Bill) and my clown name is Shobo.  I’ve been clowning for well over 30 years.  I’m a member of both WCA and COAI.

 My 1st clown class was taught to me in a dance studio with 3 other people, where Shobo was born.  Originally a Hobo character, I just added an S to Hobo since my last name has an S.  Can’t actually remember when I haven’t clowned around.  I’m married and have five grown “kids” and have 5 grand sons. I live in New Jersey but use work in Philly at a family business that was started in 1892 by my great grandfather, which made me the 4th generation. Recently I have been working at a Brewery in Cape May, NJ during the summer and Sub teaching at the local Elementary school.

     In 2013 I was awarded "MACA Clownitarerian Award" for my work at Kid's alley and other aspects of Clowning. Each month at my clown alley I was to bring the education portion of the meeting to enhance their clowning skills.  One meeting I asked a Laughter yoga instructor to teach. I was hooked and became a certified laughter leader.   I have held several classes at our Clown Alley, home church, School teacher In-service days, libraries and corporate events for AC Electric.  Laughter is really good for you. 

     We also do “Caring clowning” visits at our Local Nursing home and hospital once a month.  My “Outside life” of Clowning, I’m the Chair of the Administrative council of my home church which I have attended since birth.  I love coaching different youth sports and have been an umpire for the local Little League. I enjoy my time with an organization called  Kid's Alley.  Kid's alley is an after school, Saturday Program for the Kids of Camden NJ. I also "know" a jolly ole elf named Santa who goes to the local School and on Christmas Eve travels to different homes. Most weekends you can find him at Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA for their Christmas season.  I also really LOVE watching my grand kids grow and explore and hopefully my goofiness will rub off on them.  I enjoy traveling with my wife to the Jersey Shore near Cape May in Delhaven where we live and also to different parts of the world.  We even got to "Clown around" in Romania 2 times, Panama, and Honduras.

   I’ve teamed up with Ron “Shady” Mount to do many more library and campground shows.  Our Show is Called “the Shobo and Shady Show” and you can find a lot of our routines and pictures on our web site: http://shoboandshadyshow.weebly.com

Along with that, I actually started an LLC Company called Laughproductions LLC, to group together all the aspects of laughter I do.. i.e. laughter yoga, Shobo Show, Da Billy show, Santa and Shobo and Shady show…Check out my web site for more details: http://laughproductionsllc.weebly.com
