FROM SWIMWEAR DESIGNER TO REAL ESTATE BROKER, APPLICANTS SCRAMBLE FOR SHOT AT 'BOZO' JOB; FIRST U.S. AUDITIONS IN HOLLYWOOD, JAN. 13

 HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Strange what a call for new "Bozos" will yield.
 It seems like the coveted clown job, "the crown jewel of jesters," is the goal of those from many walks of life.
 Since announcing his national search two weeks ago, "Bozo" TV creator, Larry Harmon, has been bombarded with applications from "Bozo" wanna-bes.
 Among the applicants are a swimwear designer, hoping to submerge herself in a new profession; a real estate broker, who's putting the "for sale" sign up to run away with the circus; a physical education instructor, bent on setting down his weights for a clown wig; and a printer, who's got an inkling that the "Bozo" job's for him.
 Six "Bozo" candidates are sought by Harmon, who'll review would- be applicants on Jan. 13 in Hollywood, where auditions will be staged.
 Not unlike the U.S. Senate, which is often called the world's most exclusive club, the "Bozo Club" has very few members, and its members are selected, not elected.
 After 35 years on TV, in both U.S. and foreign markets, new "Bozos," says Harmon, are needed to staff a growing number of expanding "Bozo" enterprises, from local TV shows to live stage shows.
 While 203 people have portrayed the character under Harmon's tutelage, getting picked for the role is no easy shot. "I look to mold them in my likeness," adds Harmon.
 "I'm looking for fresh talent with warm energetic personalities. People persons I call them. Some of my best Bozos' have been the most unlikely candidates, but they all have on thing in common, they love people."
 Interested applicants should submit resumes, photos and videotapes to "Bozo Auditions," Larry Harmon Pictures Corp., P.O. Box 3198, Hollywood, CA 90078.
