The Court Jester: The Vessel With the Pestle

“The Court Jester” has everything: Medieval palace drama! Implausible hypnotism! Acrobatic dwarves!

… Oh, I’m being told that “The Court Jester” is not New York’s hottest nightclub, but rather a 1955 musical comedy starring Danny Kaye. It’s also the subject of this week’s Giant Geek vs. Mega n00b, featuring guest geek Yoichi Shiga.

Loyal listeners may remember Yoichi from our Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone episode, where he was one of our Potter n00bs … but what did we think of this movie, which he said was hugely influential on him as a child? Listen and find out!

You can rent or buy “The Court Jester” from all the usual places — Amazon, iTunes, Vudu and Google Play.
