Mark Roberts, Professional Streaker
from Liverpool, England is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's
most prolific streaker, having performed around 300 streaks so far. Otherwise
unemployed, Mark has made it his life's work to get publicly naked
at as many major events as possible. At time of writing, his list
of nude appearances is quite impressive.
In 2003 alone he streaked at Royal Ascot racecourse, the
International Synchronised Swimming Event in Barcelona, the Tour
de France, the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, the French Open
tennis championship, and numerous soccor matches. At Wimbledon
in July 2000 he streaked during a match featuring Anna Kournikova. Anna's response was to
hide under a sweaty towel, which was not the look the upskirt photographers were
hoping for. Roberts has also streaked on a floating weather map, at a Mr
Universe event, and a Liberal Democrats political meeting. He has been
banned from every sporting event in Britain.
Mark has also appeared in a commercial in which he runs onto a
soccer pitch fully clothed, and all the other players are naked.
The Athletico Bilbao ad actually won a Cannes Film Festival award.
At time of writing his most recent streak was at the US Super Bowl
on February 1 2004. He made it onto the field wearing a referee's
outfit which he promptly stripped off, and danced around nude
before being tackled by a New England linebacker. He had casino
advertising writing on his chest and back, along with the words
"Super Bowel." Considering the intense security of the
event, his streak was an impressive achievement in avoiding
security. He was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and
Mark makes use of a specially prepared
velcro-seamed outfit similar to that used by
strippers. "The clothes come off in a split second and I'm off.
It's called professionalism," he laughingly told Streakers, a
documentary about running in the nude.
do I streak? It's a buzz. If I didn't get the crowd reaction every time I go on
a pitch or jump out of an audience, if you don't get the buzz, there's no point,
because the point of a streak is humour - to make people laugh. And in the
7 years I've been doing it, it's the same reaction every time.
come up to me in the street, even policemen and say 'I love what you're doing'.
It's supposed to be illegal, but it's just a laugh and the police see it as a
laugh. And the magistrates in court laugh.
streak which I very much enjoyed was the
Grand National, which I won by a length, by the way." Painted with the
words Raw Hide and wearing only a cowboy hat, fake Mexican moustache and cap
guns, he was surrounded by over 15 policemen. "When they came after
me I started shooting them... I went to the police station and I'd got to know
the policeman behind the desk pretty well. He said: 'You again,
Mark? I don't want to charge you, but what's it going to take to stop you
streaking?' I said 'When they bring back hanging.'"
I have to go to jail for my belief, then I'll go to jail. If I do see a
sporting event that I think is a cracking opportunity to do a streak that hasn't
been done before, I'll break the ban and I'll do it, even if it means 28
days. I'll go to jail and I'll probably do a streak in jail.
never known a feeling like it. I'm not saying it as a nutcase, or anything
like that. It's a feeling that needs to be experienced by people just to
see what it's like. It's unbelievable.
