I wouldn’t call it stage fright exactly - more like performance anxiety, I have Aspergers - but I have gotten better at handling it with talking to people and groups of people by spicing in a bit of humor and self-deprecation into conversations. Knowing how to laugh and make fun of yourself helps immensely in many situations where appropriate. And if you can get yourself into these situations, you get used to doing them and you feel less anxious over time. You force yourself into situations like this and suddenly it feels more natural, second nature. The hardest part often times is just beginning.
 
Just make sure to insert the humor when it’s appropriate, and not like when a death or other situations where doing so might make it look like you’re making light of it. If it’s you who’s the subject of the situation, maybe, as long as you take it seriously.

I haven’t seen that special, but I saw on a YouTube video that it was edited to take out some parts where the audience just wasn’t feeling him. Apparently he even sat down at the back part of the stage at one point. Eventually the audience warmed up to him and the performance improved. But damn, that had to hurt.

I hadn’t heard the KitKat one, but I did hear the one where he said “a KitKat bar has the words KitKat imprinted into the bar. That robs you of chocolate! I want to take a KitKat bar to the factory and say ‘you owe me some letters!’ “

Okay
I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. You will never see an “escalator temporarily out of order” sign, only “escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.”
 
I like KitKats unless I’m with four or more people.
 
My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.
 
I like rice. It’s good when you’re hungery and you want two thousand of something.
 
If I ever got lost in the woods, fuck it. Build a house. I used to be lost, but now I live here. I have severely improved my predicamate.
 
I remixed a remix, it’s back to normal.
 
You can’t please some of the people all of the time, and last night all those people were at my show.
 
Is that enough? I could go on.

Mitch was one Hell of a funny comedian. Gonna paraphrase here:
 
“These were Texas Grilled flavored Fritos; you know, Fritos with grill marks on ‘em. Kinda reminds me of somethin’… bein’ a little kid out in the backyard, my Dad firin’ up the charcoal grill… then throwin’ on some Fritos! Yeah, flip that Frito, Dad. You know how I like it.”

It’s amazing how he was able to be so endearing and likable by poking fun at his own jokes. It was disarming without being awkward, in a way that very few comics could get away with.
 
He’s one of my stand-up inspirations. He just took the partying way too far.
