'Naked Cowboy' makes it big

, July 13, 2013

Robert Burck (R) and his wife Patricia Cruz sit in the back of a taxi while on their way to a hired performance on a private boat cruise in New York. Burck, better known as the original 'Naked Cowboy,' started performing in Times Square in 1998, and claims to make up to $150,000 a year in tips alone. Burck has turned his success into a franchise and charges other street entertainers $500 a month to perform in his likeness. In 2010, Burck, who is one of the more popular attractions in Times Square, announced his run for the President of the US. He has also appeared in ad campaigns and has his own record label.
