I touched on this in my previous thread and it got me thinking.

When you're performing...do you accept tips? Why or why not? What is the largest tip you have ever received at one table or strolling gig?

I do accept tips for two reasons.

1. I feel that when someone is giving you a tip, they are presenting you with a gift and to not accept the gift would be rude.

2. Accepting a tip is accepting the fact that the person who is giving it to me really enjoyed my act enough to present me a token of their esteem. So #2 kind of bleeds into #1 a bit I guess.

The highest tip I've ever received while hopping at a restaurant was $100 and the highest I've received while strolling thru a Society Party was $1000.00. Man...I wish that happened more often! = )

Accepting yes for the reasons you state, soliciting no.

ABSOLUTLY!!! Once in a blue moon, I'll see an entertainer (usually clowns if you call that entertainment???) with a button or a sign on saying Tips Accepted! I hate that. Very tacky...very unprofessional. That makes it seem like you're telling your audince they MUST tip you. Not cool!

Well the tip thing has been done to death here.

Really look at a search, it has a lot of stuff and it all has been said.
