audiences at the Scottish Zoo Circus in Scottish Zoo and Variety Circus, New City Road, Glasgow - in the middle of 1899
from W.F. Frame Tells His Own Story, pages 118–119:
After that engagement [at the Empire Theatre, Glasgow], I accepted a contract to appear for two weeks as jester at the Scottish Zoo Circus with E.H. Bostock, and I followed the horse with my songs, jests and quips. My turn was a great novelty at the City Road―“The man you know” appearing as a “fool” to the satisfaction of my brother townsmen, who encouraged me in my sallie.
