Faces at the Fair: Bill Robison, strolling comedian

Comedian Bill Robison has spent around 16 years entertaining fairgoers at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair. He’s dressed as a man riding a boat this year, playing his ukelele and cracking jokes as he paddles his way around the fairgrounds.

If you’ve been to the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds these last several days, you would have seen strolling comedian Bill Robison playing his ukulele and cracking jokes. He’s hard to miss, with his straw hat, floral T-shirt and his boat costume.

"It’s a bit of a conundrum," Robison said. "People can’t quite figure out how I do it."

He’s been entertaining fairgoers at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair for at least 16 years, cracking jokes and sometimes playing old songs from the 1920s on his ukulele.
