Jonathan Kay: Know One’s Fool

Renowned fool performer and teacher Jonathan Kay presents the unexpected in the most magical, anarchic and delightful way in a night of improvisation and theatre of immediacy

Only a fool could conjure up so rich and absurd a world from thin air. All rules are thrown aside and no two shows are ever the same. A show absolutely like no other you will ever see, Know One’s Fool is an open door to the imagination.

Jonathan Kay’s shows are interactive, playful, shocking, reality bending, challenging and extremely funny. It’s improvisation at its most confounding, poignant and humorous where all notion of audience and performer gets tipped upon it’s head, and a conversation between audience and The Fool leads to a journey through both the mundane and the sublime.

“Not stand-up, but this new latest one-man show is from a performer and teacher about the fool who could well have an influence on stand-up in the future… Highly recommended for anyone out for something different.”
Time Out

“Making them laugh at themselves to understand themselves. It is what a good fool is supposed to do… Wickedly funny and completely unpredictable.”
The Guardian

“Quite unlike anything I have seen before. I have never been challenged so much in the theatre. Kay is a master of his art.”
The Irish Times

“In this brilliant and entirely improvised one-man show he leaves the audience dizzy.”
The Independent
