Life Is a Circus (1960)

[Bud Flanagan, Jimmy Nervo, Teddy Knox, Jimmy Gold, Charlie Naughton]

This zany film marks the screen debut of Britain's popular comedy troupe, The Crazy Gang. The story begins as the gang are busy sweeping up for the almost bankrupt circus they work for. The owner of a rival carnival endeavors to put them out of business for good. The Crazies manage to foil his evil scheme after they find a magical oil lamp containing a helpful genie.

Along the way, the troupe performs a variety of specialty acts including a comic trapeze act, juggling, magic, cornball jokes, and songs, which include: "Life is a Circus," "For You, For You," and "Underneath the Arches."
