Youtube and Me

Recently I've been publishing my videos on youtube.com because I feel it's a great way to get my talent out to the world, using the multi-platform approach, ie. Web+DVD+Live Shows+Flyers. Youtube.com allows me to create my own TV Channel on the internet! My Channel , titled, STEVIE MACK TV has (1.) "Stevie Mack @ Night", my own hilarious talk show featuring News, Cirrent Events and Skits (2.) Stand Up Comedy (My gigs from TV & Night Clubs) (3.) Inglewatts (My Original Annimated Cartoons), now I'm broadcasting it to the wolrd.
See, no longer are the days of waiting to be discovered by the networks and hoping they like you enough to put your show on the air. No sir, my show gets MY approval and is aired by ME. I'm the writer, producer, director, actor and the executive in charge of greenlighting the show! Now, on the other hand the public gets to decide if they'll watch my brand of humor. So far, I've gotten some great feed-back from viewers. If you'd lie to check out my Channel click here http://youtube.com/ComedianStevieMack

Overcoming Stage Fright


Public speaking is the #1 fear of most people. How do you overcome it? I can only tell you how I deal with it. Even after performing thousands of times in front of a live audiance, I still get the jitters slightly before I take the stage.
What I do is say a little prayer before I hit the stage. Something as simple as, "God, give me the power to go out here and have fun!" Once I do that, all the fear subside and a surg of courage takes over. But if I leave it up to fear, I'll go out with nervous energy and not connect with the audiance. I used to go out and not look at the people, I'd look at the back wall of the room. That only works for so long, soon you'll have to deal with those faces, and after a while you'll want to deal with those faces, because that's where all the good improv material comes from.
So, say a prayer and buckle up! It's going to be a wild ride...wild, but FUN!
