George Leybourne

''Lounging in the Aq'' ([[Royal Aquarium]]), sheet music cover by [[Alfred Concanen]] (1880) George Leybourne (17 March 1842 – 15 September 1884) was a ''Lion comique'' of the British Victorian music hall who, for much of his career, was known by the title of one of his songs, "Champagne Charlie".

Another of his songs, and one that can still be heard today, is "The Flying Trapeze", or "The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze". His 1867 hit "Champagne Charlie" led to the first major success of the music hall concept in Britain and even today he is still thought of as one of the most well known music hall performers.
