The details (from wikipedia)


Tommy Lorne (December 7, 1890 – April 17, 1935) was a Scottish music hall comedian of the 1920s.
Born Hugh Gallagher Corcoran in Kirkintilloch, he grew up in Glasgow.
Lorne famously wore white make-up, boots that were too large, a jacket that was too short, a Glengarry and a very short kilt. He performed his act in a high-pitched voice. In 1927, Lorne made two short films, The Lard Song and Tommy Lorne and "Dumplings", both filmed in the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film process.
It is often said that Lorne sausage is named after him. This is exactly the sort of tall story that Lorne is likely to have started himself.
He died from pneumonia at age 45.
