    people who encourage passersby to come into a place- disco, pub...who are they?

    There are people who stand in front of a disco/ pub/ etc and encourage passersby to visit it- what are they called?

    Another question- if someone does not like to have a picture of them taken - can we say: locals are a bit touchy about being photographed?

    or someone is touchy about sexist jokes - (reacts badly to them)?
