Ernie Lotinga

Ernie Lotinga (1876–1951) was a British comedian and film actor.[1] Lotinga became known for the Josser series of comedy film in which he starred during the 1930s.

After seeing him perform on stage in 1927, T.S. Eliot wrote to Virginia Woolf that Lotinga was, "the greatest living British histrionic artist, in the purest tradition of British obscenity."[2]
