I recently appeared in the BBC television programme ‘Stand up for Shyness’, starring Rhod Gilbert. The programme was made by BBC Wales and explores Rhod’s shyness. The first half concerns his shyness. I discussed research into shyness with him for about an hour and I make a brief appearance in the programme. In the second half of the film Rhod encourages and trains three extremely shy people to become stand-up comedians for a show in a comedy club in downtown Cardiff. They all do really well and this part is quite moving to watch. I was fortunate enough to be in the audience in the club and saw how well they did and the great reception they received.
I highly recommend the programme, which should be available on BBC iPlayer, or on You Tube.
