Joachim Ringelnatz (born 1883 in Wurzen as Hans Gustav Bötticher, died 1934 in Berlin) was a German writer, cabaret artist and painter, who is best known for humorous poetry around the fictional character Kuttel Daddeldu. He was a well-known writer at the time of the Weimar Republic and had actors like Asta Nielsen and Paul Wegener among his close friends. His partly bizarre, expressionistic and witty work is still known today.
