Lars "Lasse" Erik Oliver Lindroth (9 November 1972 – 11 July 1999) was a an Iranian-Swedish comedian, actor and writer.

He became popular in Sweden as a comedian in the mid-1990s, under the stage name Ali Hussein.[1] From there he went on to also write books and play parts in films and on TV. For example, he played in the TV series Sjukan, which was a Swedish version of British sitcom Only When I Laugh.

His Iranian origin allowed him to play on the prejudices about immigrants from different countries, while also making jokes about racists of all sorts. This made him unpopular in the nationalist movements.

He died in an automobile accident on E6 near Uddevalla at 26 years of age.[2]
