Bringing their unique clown skills to any venue as two of the most beloved clown characters you will ever see! Jots and SonShyne with over 30 years’ experience specializing in successful clown performances, which include: juggling, magic, balancing, balloons and face painting. Jots (Rick Chaney) The son of world renown Hall of Fame clown Earl Chaney-“Mr. Clown” has been clowning since the age of twelve when he traveled with his father on the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus. He learned from some of the greatest in the business including, but not limited to: Jim Howle, Leon McBryde, Marc Anthony and the list goes on. He performed in Las Vegas, NV with Mr. Clown’s Suitcase Circus on some of the biggest stages. He has developed a kind hearted character, named Jots that is endeared by children everywhere. Whether in front of thousands of children on a huge stage, or a humble back yard family event, Jots gets the laughs! That for Jots is his life purpose. Today he performs full time with his wife Monica Chaney for schools, corporate events, festivals, churches and Birthday Parties. 

Monica (SonShyne) Chaney,started at the age of 14 in Las Vegas, NV where she met her life-long partner Rick Chaney. When she met Rick in 1977 she was amazed that he was a clown and so was his dad! She saw stars and soon enough became a student of the grease paint. Rick taught her the art of traditional make-up which being an artist she loved and excelled in. She also began to practice her skills of performing, juggling, balloon sculpting and face painting. Clowning was in her blood to stay and she added modeling, theatre, commercials as well as face painting at Circus Circus in Reno, NV. Along her journey she added Professional Sales and Marketing, lecturing and traveled coast to coast under the mentorship of ABC’s Secret Millionaire Wealth and Success Trainer Dani Johnson. She is a quick study, and excellent lecturer. 

Both Chaney’s hard working skills make up a successful ingredient for Circus Daze, but the ministry that heads up this team is still number one. This year has been challenging taking them into a diverse amount of venues and environments. Each one requiring a different level of marketing, performing. They were honored to be interviewed by TCT Christian television, by performing a gospel show IN make up, then concluding the interview speaking to churches and Christian leaders about presenting the “Gospel in Greasepaint” 

The synergy and humor these two bring along with their passion to keep the art of traditional clowning alive… a must see team!

Bobby began his clowning at the ripe old age of 13, first paying job was in Chicago where Bobby rode 3 city buses in costume to a picnic, 3 hours later and $15.00 richer, he began his love and life in clowning. 1970 saw Bobby at a crossroad in his life, either be drafted into the Military or join the Navy, Bobby chose the latter spending 20 years on active service as a Photographer. Having spent 6 years in Spain and the only clown in the area gave him the chance to be in high demand. While traveling around the Eastern side of the world on ships Bobby was given the opportunity to perform in many European countries. Bobby met Steve Kissell in 1982 when the Navy brought him to Norfolk aboard the USS America, Steve asked Bobby to photograph one of the first Circus Magic Conventions in 1983 at Old Dominion University.

The rest his history. He retired in 1990 and went full time clowning in 1991 and has been trying to make a living at it ever since, those that know Bobby know he has never starved. In 2010 Steve asked Bobby, again, if he could photograph the group at Circus Magic, he agreed and thus thrust Bobby back into photography. Now he not only covers the entire convention, but has also invested in portrait equipment and offers family entertainers the opportunity to obtain reasonably priced publicity photos. So if you see Bobby with his camera at Circus Magic Convention, SMILE, SAY CHEESEBURGER, and have your photo taken.
