Hey YoJo …
An event from YoJo is so much more than a mascot appearance. His purpose is to energize large groups of children by performing scripted kids’ comedy shows with educational themes.

Bromley Productions, LLC and YoJo’s official headquarters are located in Columbia, Maryland. (In between Washington, DC & Baltimore, MD) The Middle-Atlantic US states are YoJo’s normal travel areas (NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, DC, VA) But YoJo enjoys traveling and taking road trips to other parts of the country..
YoJo’s target audience is elementary school age children.
YoJo’s BULLY NO MORE program does great for K-8 schools, too.
Depending on the venue layout, YoJo’s shows work perfectly for audiences from 50 – 1,000 children in attendance.
March 2, 2000 marks YoJo’s official birthday! On that day, he debuted his first CHOOSE TO READ show in Beltsville, Maryland. Since then, YoJo has performed over 4,400 shows to young audiences all over the USA.
No. Totally not. The older kids will enjoy YoJo just as much as the younger ones. YoJo’s comical style and animation appeals to all elementary grades. The creator and main performer of YoJo has over 10 years of Major League mascotting experience. If he can handle New York Yankee fans, he can handle your 5th graders.
No. YoJo would not be in business for 20+ years if he was scary. The overwhelming majority of elementary school age kids love his shows and his style.
Not much. The YoJo show is mostly self-contained and only needs very basic items like chairs, a table, access to electricity, and a backstage area or a separate private room for YoJo to change. The program is typically performed in auditoriums, gymnasiums, or multi-purpose rooms. In his 20+ year history, YoJo has never traveled to a school or venue where a show could not be performed.
Yes. Performing on a stage is preferred, but it is not an absolute requirement. In most cases, performing a YoJo show on a floor works just fine if the audience is seated on the floor without chairs. The only exception is the TREAT YOUR BODY RIGHT program. We strongly suggest a stage for that performance for larger audiences.
Maybe. YoJo has performed shows outdoors before, but we really would need to know the venue layout before approving. Call 1-800-404-YOJO (9656) to discuss with our show producer.
Yes, YoJo can bring different show sets. A common multiple show booking is having YoJo perform an ACE YOUR TEST assembly for intermediate testing grades, and a CHOOSE TO READ or TREAT YOUR BODY RIGHT assembly for the non-testing primary grades.
Yes, and if an insurance certificate is required on your end, we’ll be happy to provide that.
Yes. In many school districts around the country (e.g. New York City Public Schools) Bromley Productions, LLC is already on the list of approved vendors. If we are not currently an approved vendor in your school district, we would just need some guidance on what is needed to make that possible.
Yes. credit cards, cash, or checks made out to Bromley Productions, LLC are accepted.
YoJo really isn’t a birthday party act, so he probably is not your best option for that type of event. However, we do offer some great YOJO GEAR that makes for a wonderful birthday present!
If you would like a “just-for-fun” on-stage experience for kids, we recommend YoJo’s CHOOSE TO READ or TREAT YOUR BODY RIGHT programs. Even though both those programs have good underlying messages, they are still lots-of-laughs and great for non-educational settings.
Yes. Bromley Productions offers a number of discounts on multiple show bookings, co-bookings with other schools, and re-booking YoJo shows during the same school year. Call 1-800-404-YOJO (9656) to discuss with our show producer regarding details.
Good Question. Your guess is as good as ours. Interestingly, YoJo’s creator discovered that his name means “Extra Emotion” in Japanese several years after his debut. Which is remarkably fitting given his vibrant personality.
