One of the ways to let people have fun is verbal wit. In the Middle ages people who entertained others using their wit were called fools, or jesters. So, I've got 2 questions:
1. How would you call a person whose profession is to entertain people using his/her wit?
2. What pictures or situations come to your mind when you think about this person?
3. Give 3 ajectives characterizing that person.
Thank you in advance.
I'll unscreen the comments later.
