Ernest Augustus Elen was born in Pimlico, London on 22 July 1862. He began busking at an early age and found a position singing in a minstrel troupe. His solo success began in 1891 when he started performing in public houses, singing songs in a manner similar to many cockney fruit sellers and ironmongers of the time, known as costermongers. Because of this, he became known as a 'coster comedian'.
