Hello....I finally was able to go out and work a pitch....very first time!!
I've been performing for about 25 years, but I've never busked. It was a fun time....very interesting. And, OMG do I have a lot to learn.
The best part is....I DID IT!!!
Next best part is, I'm very happy with my routines. They were solid and well received.
The not so good part is....I saw many opportunities to write more bits, get more laughs.... There were a few spots where I need more or better scripting. Also, I need to improve drastically on getting passersby to stop (to build the crowd) while I'm in the middle of the show. I kinda failed most times at that.
Also, my hat line(s) need much work too.
But, I'm happy that I did it. And, I'm looking forward to better days ahead!!!

Patrick, you're going to have a whale of a time ahead. You may like to keep a dairy of some strange things that happen when you're out on the pitch.
Big hats to you!!
The presentation makes the magic.
