Lessons learned

I’ve learned two lessons ’bout busking while trying it myself and watching others doing it: Lesson no. 1: If you want people to stop and listen you’ll need to be funny (meaning: doing some sort of comedy) or you’ll need to be an artiste doing something impressive like magic tricks or fire-eating.
