It isn’t very often these days where I get nervous before performing. There’s always those little minute jitters there where you worry if everything is setup properly, or if that new routine or joke will go over as well as you hope. But there are lots of people out there who suffer some such debilitating stage fright for even the smallest of presentations. In this day it seems there’s a drug to cure just about anything- even stage fright. There are “beta blocker” medications on the market that can reduce anxiety when giving a presentation! It just seems like something out of the future… I guess it is 2010 after-all. The problem is these “beta blockers” can cause a slew of other problems that sound quite nasty… For the average person you’re just going to have to suck it up and give the presentation with those shakes and sweaty palms.
