A good busker is a performer, who can attract the attention of passersby, entertains and engages them, and receives cash in exchange for their performance.

You can make a lot of money busking, but it is not easy to become a full-time busker. Most buskers have day jobs, and that’s why they come out at night. There are full time working street performers out there, but they are few and far between.

The best way to start is to get in your car or on a train or bus and go where the people are. You don’t need to be in Times Square or the Embarcadero, but you do need crowds. Start in front of your local subway station or coffee shop at rush hour doing your act for a half hour. This will get you used to being around people and performing at the same time. Take note of what works and what doesn’t work, then go home and practice some more until it does work.

And if you’re a musician, keep this in mind: It’s much easier to make money as a solo performer than in a band when you’re starting out. Bands aren’t easy to book for gigs, so start as a solo performer and then move into the band format once you’ve become successful.

Busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities. In many countries the rewards are generally in the form of money but other gratuities such as food, drink or gifts may be given. Street performance was a common form of performance on the streets of Britain and Europe during the Middle Ages and into the 19th century but has become less common since the beginning of recorded music.

Buskers have to put up with a lot. They have to put up with hecklers, over-zealous police officers and security guards, bad weather, animals and insects, theft, illness, injury and jealousy from other buskers. Some buskers even have to deal with abuse from members of the public who think that because they’re performing in public they deserve what they get.

But despite all these things a great many people still continue to perform on the street for gratuities for one simple reason – it’s worth it. The number of buskers who make their living entirely from busking is very small but there are a great many more who supplement their income through it or use it as a way to develop new material.

The world’s greatest busker ever is a man named Wall Street. He made over $50,000 in one day. Wall Street is a fire eater who wears only a thong and has tattoos all over his body. He stands on a box while performing.

Wall Street says that you need to be different if you want to be a great street performer. “You have to be different,” he said in an interview with The New York Times. “You can’t just walk down the street without being noticed.”

He says that his love for fire eating started when he was 6 years old when he watched someone perform at Coney Island. When he was 18, he tried it himself and found out that he could do it with little effort. When he came back from college, he did it on the boardwalk of Venice Beach, California and then moved on to Times Square in New York City where he became famous for his act.

Buskers come from a wide range of backgrounds, ages and cultures.
