Mark Jaster Mark Jaster:
A Fool Named "O"

The Washington Post called Mark Jaster a "clown extraordinaire and one of the most graceful performers you will ever see on a stage." Audiences of all ages and backgrounds have enjoyed his kinetic humor, playful interaction, musical wit and inventive imagination. Mark Jaster trained with 20th-century masters Marcel Marceau and Etienne Decroux. Don't miss this amazing performer!

Developed and featured at the Maryland Renaissance Festival, "O" uses the simplest of props: a wooden hoop, a cloth, and some musical instruments (and non-instruments!) that might have been available to a medieval fool, and engages the audience in some really old-fashioned fun.
