What is a Jester?
A historic entertainer who performed for members of the monarchy, a jester would be dressed in colourful clothes and eclectic hats when they put on a show containing a variety of skills such as storytelling, acrobatics, comedy, juggling and magic tricks.

Did You Know? – There were many risks involved with being a jester for nobility, with many of them being ordered to act as messengers on the battlefield which more often or not ended in the opposing side killing them as an act of defiance if they did not like what they heard.

What is the Difference Between a Joker and a Jester?
The main differences between the two stems from their beginnings; where a jester would be employed by royalty, a joker would be found in a circus. Jesters are also more commonly associated with the medieval period and were required to be multitalented whereas jokers are more contemporary entertainers that have much more of a focus on comedy; performing expressions and making fun of people.
