NOTES: Festival of Fools' management announced it would become a bi-annual event after 1978, so there was no festival in Amsterdam during 1979, but Footsbarn Theatre organized the Festival of Fools On Tour in England, and no festival occurred in 1981; The Festival of Fools in 1982 was devoted to street theater; There may have been no festival in 1983, but a movie starring Jango Edwards and the Festival of Fools gang (narrated by Howard Hessman) was distributed via cable TV in the USA; 1984 was the last year of Amsterdam's Festival of Fools.
