His name is Valliant Circusman Alkexis ( As a street performer from Bordeaux France, he has a novel approach to panhandling, which is more than just looking for a hand out. He performs a fundraising act on the sidewalk with a unicycle while juggling bowling pins for the ambient public at a congested traffic stoplight. He would later canvas the stationary stopped lanes and collect his residuals. While recording these videos of him, after his performance within 1/2 hour that I was there, he rounded up around forty dollars. This location was at the east/south corner of Lincoln Blvd. and Venice Blvd. facing south in Venice CA. YouTube at
