*All about money *How big is the money? *How do I ask for tips? *Strategies for getting bigger tips
*Street performing and the law *Is street performing legal? *Do I need a permit? *What about the cops?
*Best street venues around the world *Which U.S. cities are best for street performing? *Where can I do street performing in exotic foreign countries? *Which cities require permits? *Which cities outlaw street performing?
