Jonathan Kay


The Fool isn’t just a silly face. Throughout history, Fools have used humour to puncture the pretentions and hubris of the powerful, and to share wisdom with an audience through wit.

Jonathan Kay takes his modern interpretation of “Fooling” to venues around the world, teaching and performing in local pubs, homes, businesses and theatres. He is a regular at Glastonbury’s main theatre tent, and has appeared at Sweden’s No Mind Festival, Secret Garden, and sold-out shows in Germany, France and Spain.

He is the founder of the largest street theatre festival in the UK, and an Honorary Fellow of The University of Winchester.
