San Francisco

San Francisco is still in turmoil. It's such a funny place (San Fran sillyness). It's cold all fairly cold and windy all year round. It's very expensive, and theirs two many performers fighting for...

Good question

This is a good question. It's hard for me to answer, because I've only been street performing for about 8 or 9 years. Also, my show, I believe has got worse in that time, there's no structure, no set...

SF

Now if you want to see bad pitch ethics come out to San Fran(sillyness)cisco. It's a mess out here. To me, a lot of it stems from performers ego's. Many performers out here actually feel as though...

SF is not just tough because of the violence, it's also the atmosphere. The street performers here, are 95 percent hustle (Some hustle is good, we do have to pay bills) and 5 percent art.

RIP Bozo

RIP to Bozo.

I never had much interest in clowns growing up. I didn't even know who Emmit Kelly or Red Skelton were, but everyone knew who Bozo was. I wish I could say more about his work.

point well taken

Racheal,

I think I see where you're going with this. I can dig it. We've all seen commercials where intellegence has not been insulted, and we've actually like the commercial, and I agree that is...

Alakazam is right, but I've seen some of his act on video, and it's very extrordinary. Way more so than mine, particularly my act before I added the fire torches while riding a uni-cycle. The problem...

We have the same problem

In San Fran(sillyness)cisco, we have the same problem. So called "professional buskers, and street punks, thinking they have a special right to claim performing turf (Fishermans Turf, I mean Wharf)....

SF

SF can get pretty sticky in terms of the violence, or threats of violence. The wharf has got a cool vibe, but you have a lot of people just trying to get over, including some of the buskers.

First of all who are you calling a clown? As far as being a scitzo, no I'm not. Yes I am.

Jeep,

I agree with your sentiments exactly. It's very territorial and the crate slugs are giving street performers a bad name. The problem is that there are about 10 of them, as well as about 8...
