FRED KARNO US and CANADA Tours

Between October 1910 and December 1913 the Fred Karno Company of English Comedians, with Charlie Chaplin as their star comedian, made five major tours, throughout North America and Canada. None of those dates have been recorded. Not, that is, until along came:

CHAPLIN - Stage by Stage

Charlie Chaplin Fred Karno Company in America

Front Row: Stan Jefferson, Albert Austin, Mike Asher, Charles Chaplin, Fred Karno Jnr.

In the book, you will find Dates Sheets for those tours, in which are listed in detail EVERY KNOWN appearance that Chaplin made whilst in the Karno Company. However, despite years of searching, by the Author, A.J Marriot, and a dedicated team of volunteers, along with a fair sprinkling of Librarians, the records are still not complete. This is where you may come in.
On the following pages are listed, in alphabetical order, the Towns/Cities visited, with all the known appearances, plus hints and suggested dates for when other appearances may have occured. If you live in one of the locations, and could check your local library newspaper records, the listing could be vastly improved. The information would then be transferred to the second edition of the book, wherein you would receive full credit for your contribution.
The newly published records of Chaplin's movements within the U.S. and Canada provide very important and valuable historical information but, with your help, could become definitive. Please check out the locations listed below.

CAN YOU HELP?
