I found this post about the fear of public speaking on the “Unconditional Confidence” website. Nancy Tierney’s ranked #4 blogger on public speaking (I spoke about it in a recent post).
I decided to have a look at her website as I’d made a recent post on the fear of public speaking.
What I find interesting is that I have heard a lot of my actor friends saying the same thing as Molly Shannon. They find it hard just being themselves in front of an audience. Here’s a quick extract:
“Even Saturday Night Live comediennes can be horribly afraid of pubic speaking.“Molly Shannon comedy film star and well-known contributor to Saturday Night Live, was a guest co-host on ABC’s The View today (damn, I miss Rosie on the show sooooo much), and she talked about how extremely nervous she gets if she has to make a toast at a wedding or speak in public in any way.
“I get so nervous that I can’t enjoy myself until it’s done,” says Molly, “It’s one thing to be a character where you’re disguised, but I’m much more nervous and shy as myself.”Read the full aritcle by clicking here. Great stuff! cheer Nancy.
