A.G. Vance, aka 'Alfred Vance', 'The Great Vance' or 'Alfred Grenville', was a great rival of George Leybourne, writer of 'Champagne Charlie'. Vance wrote and performed 'Cliquot' in response. Vance ended the feud with the song "Beautiful Beer". Their style introduced a new genre to the music hall, known as lion comique.

Vance died on 26 December 1888 while performing on the stage of the Sun Music Hall, Knightsbridge.
