So, a fire-eater, juggler, and a comedy-hypnotist-cowboy all walk into a radio studio. On the program today, there was a merry band of street performers also known as buskers.

Essentially, they make their money by doing a live, audience-interactive performance, followed by passing a hat around in order to collect a profit. It's an incredibly risky pursuit, but those who can make a living at it, get much more than just money in return.
