The Duncan Royale History of Entertainers collection is a salute to the noble people who provided us with the gift of laughter. Since the beginning of time, man has found the absurd, the ridiculous and the unexpected a source for amusement. The masters of these tools evolved from early Greco-Roman stage performers to the wild, make-up clowns of today. As the early court Jester influenced the minds of kings and even changed the course of history, a joke or satire is often a reflection of feelings close to the heart. Under the makeup or behind the mask, there has always been a feeling that an artist can capture our fears, worries, frustrations, absurdities and sorrows and cast them into the wind of laughter.
