How many Beatniks does it take to change a light bulb? It doesn't matter, cause we never pay the electric bill.
I went down to the French Quarter yesterday and watched the other performers. Some great acts, five performers put on a small circus on Royal Street, I watch a very funny magician do a few incredible card tricks and tell jokes. I saw his act three times, each time exactly the same material. You don't need more than five minutes of material. For one show he made about $15 for five minutes work.
My juggling skills are pretty good, joke telling also. Every performer had a character or a gimmick. I need some sort of a shtick. A stoned, outdated hipster beatnik with a beret. Waffle helped, well actually sat there and critiqued my work on juggling props. I made three juggling pins that look like burning joints. I'll let you know how it goes.
Did you here about the Beatnik suicide bomber? He's on his fifth mission.
