Fred Karno's Circus

Posted by Chris on January 18, 2004

Can anyone tell me, please, why we say Fred Karno's Circus to describe something which is chaotic?
I know Fred Karnow made his fame & fortune from Fred Karnow's Circus and his list of recruits to his troupe was extensive including Charlie Chaplin, Stan Laurel etc etc. Any idea? Thank you. Chris
