George Leybourne was one of the fashionable 'swells' of the music hall, known collectively as the Lions Comiques. The fashionable evening dress of the Lions Comiques performers contrasted greatly with the cloth-cap coster cockney image adopted by many other music hall performers.
Along with The Great Vance and Arthur Lloyd, George Leybourne had a reputation of living the high life and it was commented, in the late 19th century, that these Lions Comiques were men who set women just a little higher than their bottle. Leybourne's most famous song was Champagne Charlie. As top of the bill at the Canterbury Theatre he drank nothing but champagne in public and drove around London in a carriage drawn by four white horses.
