Robin Williams’ Cheerleading Career

Written by: George Chittenden : 12 Nov 2019

Often history is dominated by the darkest of events, so today we thought we’d go with a comical image in the hope of putting a smile on your faces. This brilliant photo features the rather amazing comedian Robin Williams wearing high-heeled boots and a skimpy vest dressed up as a cheerleader for the Denver Broncos. Technically he made history, becoming the Broncos first male cheerleader.

The photo was taken on Nov 11th, 1979 for an episode of "Mork and Mindy", as Williams was required to dress as a cheerleader for a scene in the show where Mork delivers an inspiring pregame speech. The legendary comedian actually went out onto the field with the Pony Express during a game against the Patriots in front of more than 74,000 fans at Mile High Stadium.
