WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"The overwhelming majority loved his open-hearted approach and his ability to ignite a crowd. ‘Bring him back’ was the call. But he’s not visited these shores since.
So I pray that a football club has the courage to see the value that Cameron could bring, be it in fan zones, family zones or in community events and I urge you to buy this book."

ABOUT
THE AUTHOR

Cameron Hughes is in the smile business. Wherever he goes, he lights up the room, stage or stadium. The only professional sports entertainer of his kind in the world Cameron created his career based on a genuine love for people, the joy of making them laugh, and empowering and exciting crowds to let go and let loose.


In his youth, Cameron could be found whooping it up on the sidelines of his high school basketball games and later sporting a hollowed-out melon atop his head in the crowd at Bishop’s University football games. A few years later, while attending a game of his hometown NHL team, the Ottawa Senators, Cam could feel the crowd’s desire for something exciting, and he got up on his seat and started dancing to Sister Sledge’s "We Are Family", the crowd went wild. Sens upper management reached out and offered him a recurring gig, and his unique career was born. It wasn’t all smooth sailing from that point on, there were many obstacles to overcome, but Cameron never stopped hustling and eventually made it to the world’s largest sporting stages.
