Default Worst Busker?

What's the worst busker you've ever seen? Mine was some guy in Zurich who was playing guitar and singing...at least I thought he was singing. I heard a little sound coming from his mouth...I actually stopped and went up to his mouth with my ear. Then, I fell over laughing. The end.

like the hard line Barry, is that covered in the black humour book ?

worst act I saw was a realy bad statue in Zagreb, although to be fair I would have to say that I've seen some others just as bad.

once i saw the worst 2 acts on a pitch have a loud argument on the pitch about which one of them had the right to 'the walk of death' trick. That made them appear to be even worse than I had originaly thought
There's a chance I have seen other acts even worse though.

Default not the worst, but pretty darn bad

gav, i do like the hard line, though the stuff in my book is funny, dark and not particularly vulgar. and certainly not so grumpy.

as for bad acts...cologne, like most big towns has attracted its share of statues. there is one currently playing dressed up entirely in a store bought "spiderman" costume, complete with mask ansd spidey glasses, who upon the dropping of a coin will shake hands and hug adults, or will feel up and hug small children. this being the full extent of his spider-repetoire. what i find truly shocking is not that he is pathetic in a store bought do, and not that he can shake hands for a euro, but that during the course of somebody good playing (brendan, desperate enough to work one of the world's ugliest pitches) there will be dozens of people; young, middle, and old; turning to there companions and saying " oooooh, SPIDERMAN".

spooky

Thumbs down God rest his soul but ...

Perry the Hobo clown has to be the worst ...

Him or Mysterious Stan ... although, to be fair I saw Mysterious Stan on a bad day ... a really bad day.

Perry, used to parents grabbing their children away whenever he got too close and accustomed to the facial grimicies whenever kids smelled his rotting breath, made a balloon dog ... and I believe it had better teeth than Perry.

Mysterious Stan, well, that's a long story...

Default worst how?

Hi Zoobie - What do you mean by worst?
Worst attitude?
Least talented?
Worst personal hygiene?

Hi B. Man - heard so much about you, mostly good...now I'm curious - who is Stan and what is so mysterious about him?

and this may be stupid, but what's up with you and Gazzo?
I detect hostility.... Ciao - Kev

I think Scot is definately the worst busker ever, I mean, he doesn't even do SHOWS. And Brendan is really only a good houseguest if you like people with mono.

Pls Kev don't ask about the tattoed bug lover and the arachnophobic Nick Nickolas clone.
It is too ugly to even contemplate. Surfice to say, suggestions of the combination of large quantities of fruit, a lost testicle and a guy with no nose still cause shudders among the older members of this community.

Then there was the sandshoes.

I stick to my vote. Brendan is the first worst perfomer. And he's wishy washy.
