Jonathan Kay is a 21st century Fool. He is recognized as a leading teacher of Fooling, having toured in the USA, Canada, Australia, Spain, Bosnia, Jordan and the UK. He see this art form as inclusive, a way of including both the ‘real’ world of the audience and the ‘imaginary’ world of theatre. He takes his audience on a journey into the human experience using paradox, taking licence with the dark and light aspects of life.
“Making them laugh at themselves to understand themselves. It is what a good fool is supposed to do!” -The Guardian
