Topic: Who started as a busker

I'm working on a project regarding kids show performers and street performers. I know that Silly Billy, Chris Capehart, The Great Soprendo (Geoffrey Durham) all had experience as street performers before they became well known in the children's entertainment world... but am I missing any?

I'm not "well known" like the above pantheon of performers, but I busked for 15 years in Old Town, Alexandria VA while also doing more traditional kid and family shows at conventional venues like birthday parties etc. My experience as a busker and material developed on the street influenced a lot of what I do in my regular shows.

I am not well known, but perform as a busker as well as doing children's shows.
