Richard Tarlton was favourite among jesters to Queen Elizabeth I. Tarlton was the first to achieve national celebrity as a comedian and enjoyed a successful career in theatre as a leading member of the Queen's Players. As a writer, he was the author of popular ballads and plays. With Tarlton Shiraz, 'Jester' celebrates the era where boredom was alleviated through humour and the banal through intellect.
