I have all of my effects down, but i can't make money! For some reason, i only got $3.50 last time i worked for 2 hours straight. this happens every time. How do i let people know i accept tips without shoving it down their throats?

You can't. If you're walking around doing tricks for people, you're not going to make money. To make money on the street, you're going to need to put together a show, grab a table, and go pull a crowd. One on one will not get tips. 300 to 1 will get tips, usually.

Where's Paddy or Dave when you're expecting them.

Right here.

Exodus is right. I saw Character on Tuesday, it was HOT, crowds were CRAPPY but he set up, did a 6 or 7 minute show and got money in the hat.

He is just beginning but his act was good and he was entertaining, his jokes were funny and involved the audience. The ONLY thing I could say to correct him was that he only had a hat line at the finale. I throw hat lines all thru the act and give the big hat line at the end. He just used the big line. BUT, it worked!! He works and he will be a success if he stays on the street.

I really see Character hitting the road and working festivals and making D%^&* good money.

That's the difference between Blaineing and Busking.
