"Well, busking specifically is varied. There are times when I work with other performers, musicians or face painters, and then there's being hired to mingle at parties and street fairs. When I do that, I usually just pull a scarf…"
"I am behind a stage but not a scrim when I busk. I find the proscenium is an important visual cue for tourists and their kids who are overwhelmed. I do Burlesque and Adult Shows where I'm seen, sometimes veiled, sometimes not. "
Your YouTube busking is a lot of fun and, even though you stand behind a bit of a stage, you look like a perfect member for Out Front With My Puppet. I'd love to see you, either there or in the Forum, discuss busking. Oh,…"

Our landlady when I was a kid, and the Muppets (duh.)
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
Hmmm...Well Jim Henson, of course, and Kermit by extension. Joel Hodgson and the 'bots on "MST3K. And Basil Twist, who I've had the great pleasure of working with a few times, when I was a troubled youth and now as a slightly less troubled adult, is also a BIG inspiration.

More About Me:
I'm 34, a fan of horror and scifi (the cheesier the better!) and provide alternative style puppetry for weird kids, teens and adults. No princesses, fluff or clowns. We're goofy and cartoonishly violent at times, but have also been known to shock people with our sentimentality (which I let show, MAYBE once a year). We busk, and do everything from kids' parties to Burlesque shows here in the Bay Area. We also provide a "PuppetGram" service.
Your YouTube busking is a lot of fun and, even though you stand behind a bit of a stage, you look like a perfect member for Out Front With My Puppet. I'd love to see you, either there or in the Forum, discuss busking. Oh, another group where your participation would be good is the Puppets: Comedy Writing as you do an excellent job of expanding material through asides and updating.
