Stephen Colbert Becomes Wrigley Field Hot Dog Vendor

Jeremy Belanger

On Thursday’s The Late Show, Stephen Colbert tried his hand at the most important position in a baseball stadium: hot dog vendor. The host put on a disguise, strapped on a heavy hot dog box, and started selling tubed meat to hungry baseball fans.

He tried out his throwing arm by pitching a wrapped dog to Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber. However, the real heat came when Colbert interacted with the fans. At one point he propositioned a couple to come to his paneled van and “party.” He shouted, “Hot dogs! All I have is hot dogs. Literally, that’s all I have in my life. I’ve driven away everyone who loved me.” Colbert even wheedled a sip of a fan’s beer.

Eventually, his role as the hot dog vendor was cut short when Joe Maddon relieved him of his duties.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
