We’ve all seen him.
The wild dancing guy throwing shirts at major sporting events from the Olympics to the NBA Finals. And we’ve all wondered…”Who IS that guy?” THAT guy is…Cameron Hughes. And yes…THAT’s his job.
For over 26 years, Cameron Hughes has ignited crowds at sporting events across the globe. The only professional sports entertainer of his kind in the world, Cameron has performed at over 1,500 events including 2 Olympic Games, 5 NBA Finals, 2 Stanley Cup Finals, and the US Open tennis tournament.
His relentless optimism, infectious cheering, and unbridled dancing have delighted and energized unsuspecting crowds, infusing Cameron’s indelible spirit in over 30 million people’s memory banks – often without anyone even knowing who the man with the famous dance moves really is.
So now, for the first time ever, Cameron is letting everyone in on his big secret – how he became the world’s first professional fan. His new memoir KING OF CHEER is an inspiring story of perseverance and self-belief that recounts how he took his genuine love for people and turned it into the most unlikely of careers.
