Graham Scott, 47, a street performer known as "Silver" heads home for the evening during the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Scott, 47, works as a street performer in Edinburgh, Scotland. Known as "Silver," he performs once a day during the Fringe Festival every summer "mucking around with people" for tips and donations.
Previously he would mime, busking on street corners covered in silver paint and silver clothes.
Scott has had a stutter "since [he] could remember," but does not refrain from putting himself in front of large audiences.
He says that he was drawn to performing because his stutter would disappear. Many stutterers find fluency through singing or yelling.
Scott preferred not to reveal how much he earns, as he explains, "they aren't all good days," and "you have to keep in mind that sometimes you get rained out and don't make any money at all.”
Scott talks with a friend after the show, paying for his pint entirely in loose change earned from that day's performance.
Scott sprawls out on the ground after reluctantly canceling his show. A nearby act featuring rap music and break dancing drew away his crowd and droned out his act.
