Tommy Lorne was the stage name of Hugh Corcoran (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.
It is often said that Lorne sausage is named after him. This is exactly the sort of tall story Lorne is likely to have started himself.
He died from pneumonia at age 45.
more esoteric stuff...................................
I see tommy died at the tender age of 45 in 1935. could lorne sausage have played a part in his early demise?
pity google did not have a photo of him wearing his white make-up, boots that were too large, a jacket that was too short, a Glengarry and a very short kilt.
a sight to behold, but hard to imagine- especially the latter!
