What happens when you get stage fright and how have some improvisers overcome it? This episode features personal stories about how people have overcome their own anxieties about performing at a time when some others are feeling nerves for the first time.


If you are experiencing any sort of anxiety in relation to going onto the stage, do talk to someone about it. I hope this podcast is helpful but please remember, if you need advice on your specific situation, do see a professional.
