Charley Marcuse – Detroit’s Singing Hot Dog Man


Charley Marcuse, a Detroit Tigers hot dog vendor since 1999, demonstrates the sometimes controversial operatic pitch he uses to sell dogs at Detroit’s Comerica Park. Marcuse has parlayed his fame into a line of mustard, Charley’s Ballpark Mustard.

Below, a Detroit fan brings his own operatic voice to the conversation

    I wish this guy would zip his lip. we are sooooooooo sick of hearing his voice on every single Tiger home game. He doesn’t sound good. In fact, my ears hurt and I have to mute the tv when I even hear him ratcheting up his rusty pipes. yuk.
