E’en that.

I wonder how far outside a court a jester was known.
Like, did he get gigs outside the castle?
Tonight:
one night only:
Yorick, the king’s jester delivers his comedy stylings at The Porpentine.
Rhenish half price.

Or was he confined to the court?
What I’m wondering is – was there some sense of celebrity around the king’s jester?
Is this moment a bit like showing off an object once possessed by Elizabeth Taylor?
