Will Kemp
Birth: unknown
Death: Nov. 2, 1603

Shakespeare colleague, a comedian with an improvisational style who succeeded Richard Tarlton. He played the role of fool in many Shakespeare plays. His style fell from favour and he was replaced by Robert Armin. Selling his shares in the Globe theatre in 1599, he later undertook the curious feat of morris dancing from London to Norwich, which he wrote about in a pamphlet. His burial record simply describes 'Kempe, a man'. (bio by: Mark McManus)
