Billie Holiday

A victim of severe stage nerves, Holiday
preferred to sing in a tight spotlight so she
couldn’t even see the audience.

AND YET--Billie Holiday was an American jazz
singer and songwriter. Nicknamed "Lady
Day", Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz
and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly
inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a
new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo
.
Why The Fear?
Welcome to the Human Race!

Everyone who gets up in front of an
audience experiences Fear.  And if someone
tells you they can cure you of it, walk away.
No, --
run! and hide your wallet.
Hypnosis?  Give me a break.
Meditation tapes?  Save your money.
There are no magic pills, no magic wands, just hard
focused work that will change the way you approach
getting in front of people and delivering your message.

"Why do I have stage fright?  What the hell is that
about?"

Fear is something everyone deals with because it is
primal. Instinctual. Your body releases chemicals in a
fear/fight or flight situation.
It is a survival thing for humans.
And if you are human you will experience Fear.
And you will be in good company!  Take a look at the
Famous Nerves to the right.

Now, you have two choices on what to do about Fear--
get psychiatric help (seriously) or learn how to
manage
your Fear.
If you want to do the latter and are ready to work at it,
Larry will give you the tools to do so.
Larry doesn't teach you what NOT to do.  
Larry teaches you what TO DO.  And there is a HUGE
difference.
Larry has been up in front of people almost all his life.  
He, too, has human fears.

AND YET--a lifetime of experience allows him not only to
manage fear but use fear to an advantage. Larry will
teach you to take the focus off yourself and put it on
your message. You will use the tools he gives you over
and over and you will never go back to doing it any other
way.
Jim Parsons

“And there is no substitute for the doing of
it. This sounds overdramatic, but it is
literally a game of survival every time you
step out there. It’s frightening no matter
how long you do it. It’s just a matter of
becoming more comfortable with the fear.”
                      (NYTimes 5/25/14)
AND YET--Jim Parsons plays Sheldon
Cooper, CBS’ "The Big Bang Theory". He's
won three Emmy Awards and a Golden
Globe Award. On Broadway he was in "The
Normal Heart"
Famous Nerves
(you're in good company)
Jason Alexander

His bouts of panic and vertigo attacks on
Broadway became manageable once he
understood how empowering it was to take
the focus off himself and put it into his job
as an actor--to tell the story.

AND YET-- Jason Alexander went on to  
play George Costanza on "Seinfeld,"
appearing from 1989 to 1998. On
Broadway in "Jerome Robbins' Broadway",
he won the Tony Award.
Maya Angelou

Professes to be nervous every time she
recites a poem. She says, however, her
readings are made better by the nerves.

AND YET-- Maya Angelou is a poet of
the highest international acclaim and
stature most famous for the recitation
of her poem "On the Pulse of Morning"
at President Bill Clinton's inauguration.
"The best speakers know enough to be scared... the only difference
between the pros and the novices is that the pros have trained the
butterflies to fly in formation."

Edward R. Murrow

Elvis Presley: "I've never gotten over what they call stage fright. I go
through it every show."
Winston Churchill, Barbara Walters, Johnny Carson, Megan Fox,
Thomas Jefferson, Amanda Seyfried, Fiona Apple, Laurence
Olivier, Adele, Ian Holm, Brian Wilson, Carly Simon, JFK, Cher,
Margaret Thatcher, Barbara Streisand. AND Bono, of U2, gets
nervous the morning of every show.
Mark Twain: "There are two types of speakers: those
that are nervous and those that are liars."
