Tony the Peanut Man – Charleston, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Charleston County Photos | Tony the Peanut Man
For over 20 years, Tony the Peanut Man has been Charleston‘s most prolific purveyor of peanuts. Tony started out selling his gourmet goobers in Charleston’s City Market in the early 90s. His cheerful personality, coupled with his signature outfit and catchy jingle, quickly gained him a loyal following.
By 1998 Tony had become a fixture at local sporting events and even had his own line of canned boiled peanuts. The most recent addition to Tony’s act, dubbed The Peanut Man Experience, comes directly from his Peanut Man comic book and details his transformation into a crime-fighting superhero. The publication of the comic book has helped to solidify Tony’s status as a local legend.
