Being new to the Café and old to our art, I appreciate this posting. I am awaiting an order from Theambitiouscard and wish I had this book many years ago. I plan on hitting the streets next year and am in training to pass the hat.

Thanks Jimmy for your blog...it is worth the money!

Can not wait for what else you come up with.

No. I haven't heard any report of him being in New Zealand [down near Australia]. I'd love to meet him personally. I guess he's out touring and making money instead of sitting in front of a computer writing to us at present.

Been almost 2 months, should we be concerned for his safety?
I hope he is well.
Life is too important to take seriously.

The last posts he made indicated he was busking in Amsterdam. Any Amsterdam buskers on this forum?

We're glad you're back and safe, whatever the reason.
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

...with this it is no wonder that the american public feels like a street performer is a con or another sales pitch.

Every single layman I have ever talked to has the same complaint about street performers, they say,
"I hate when a performer makes me wait and wait and wait before he does the trick and then it´s not that big of a deal, it feels like a scam."

Then what´s worse is all the "performer" does is nag for money all through his "show" while providing amateur skills and with little to no theater.

there are also many performers who do not do this and the people would never have these complaints about them...

your pal jimmy


I've joined this thread very late and have a question about this particular part (quoted above). I understand that Jimmy himself may not be able to post a reply immediately but until then can anyone respond to me? BTW, I find Jimmy's views helpful as well as heartfelt and I am a fan, not a critic.
How do you address and deal with what's quoted above? My specific query put another way is this: HOW does one square the views above with the street performers need to get the the audience to stay until the end so that they can make a contribution to the hat at the end? Do you not HAVE to ask them to hang on to the end of the show and also inform them DURING the show that they have the opportunity to pay? What alternative strategies do you/Jimmy have - how do you go about it?
