If you're looking for routines, pitches, and advice, the BEST book is "Lord of Legerdemain: The Renaissance Magick of Marcom the Mountebank". This book has fully scripted routines, several examples of an opening and closing pitch, and a little history of renaissance faire magic. It maybe available from Stevens Magic.

You should also check out David Groves' book on street performing. It's not about Ren Faires but it gives you solid information on working the street which is really what you're doing. Even the stage acts at Ren Faires are pretty much street acts with a nicer place to work.
The Cellini video will also give you a taste of the street and the Gazzo performance video has some footage of him working a Ren Faire.
