Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', Sheldon wins an award, but is a nervous wreck because he has to give a speech (public speaking being one of his many phobias/quirks). He has a few drinks beforehand, but winds up getting so drunk he makes a total fool of himself.


Added DiffLines:

* Andy Partridge of Music/{{XTC}}. For years, his stage fright was kept under control by valium (he was prescribed for it as a teenager, but the doctor never took him off of it), but when his wife threw away the pills on him, his stage fright was so crippling the band had to cancel the rest of the tour they were on, and became a "studio-only" band.

* Letsplay/{{Gamingandstuff}} in the last episode of his Pokemon Emerald Parlocke, he [[spoiler:lost to wallace's gyarados]] even though he could have won had he attacked instead of trying to set up. This may have been because it was the finale and nervousism, or he just {{didn't think it through}}

** The fear of public speaking is so common, some say people fear it more than death. Jerry Seinfeld once lampshaded this:
--->'''Jerry Seinfeld:''' This means that, if you had to attend a funeral, you would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Fluttershy is extremely nervous about performing in the [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve Hearth's Warming Eve]] play in Canterlot. Does not get better when Rarity tells her there might be thousands of ponies watching.

* This was the original reason why WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption kept failing to get his boating licence]]. The first couple episodes it was shown, it was stress that made Spongebob freak out and crash into everything. Then it became a case of DependingOnTheWriter, where his driving skills would vary according to [[RuleOfFunny how the scene could best be formatted]], and when he drove well, there'd be a decent justification for his confidence boost. Then {{Flanderization}} and SeasonalRot hit, and the reason was completely forgotten, and that Spongebob would just [[DiabolusExMachina inexplicably]] turn into a [[LaughingMad crazy]], [[DrivesLikeCrazy senseless]] PersonOfMassDestruction behind a wheel, no matter the situation.

* In an episode of ''{{Birdz}}'', Eddie's friend Gregory is shown to have a fine singing voice, but is afraid to perform onstage. [[spoiler:At first, he has Eddie lip-sync to him, but then feels guilty over pushing Eddie into the spotlight this way and runs off. Eddie finally fakes a sore throat, forcing Gregory to step in as his understudy and overcome his stage fright.]]

** Reputedly, the discomfort original Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips had with the larger audiences and venues the band played post-''Trespass'' led him to quit the band.

* Till Lindemann of Music/{{Rammstein}} has such a extreme case of anxiety on stage, he rather set said stage and himself on fire in order to keep people distracted from staring at him, this is how and why Rammstein's popular style of performances was created. He used to wear sunglasses but he figured fire was more effective.
