West Hartford Native John O’Hurley Talks About Stage Fright


In his most recent ‘I, on Life’ podcast, Brian Boyer speaks with actor John O’Hurley, a West Hartford native, about what he did to overcome major stage fright.

In Episode 26 of “I, on Life,” Brian Boyer speaks with John O’Hurley, a West Hartford native and Kingswood Oxford graduate (class of 1972), who is perhaps best known for portraying the character J. Peterman on “Seinfeld” as as host of “Family Feud.”

Boyer describes the episode as follows: “Stage fright was a huge obstacle for John O’Hurley at the beginning of his career. So, the Hollywood star and #WestHartford native began to say a prayer before each performance. What is the prayer? Find out on this week’s #ionlifepodcast. It’s go time!”

On his website, West Hartford resident Brian Boyer describes his podcast series as follows:

“If you enjoy real, engaging conversations that ask all of the questions and provide most of the answers, then the ‘I’ On Life podcast is for you. This podcast explores topics such as, ‘Why do most pet lovers treat their animals better than humans?,’ and ‘Why do successful, rational people lose themselves and their minds when rooting for their favorite sports team (go Giants!)?’ and ‘Is it ever ok to admit that you are a Nickelback fan?’ No politics, no religion. Join the banter, sarcasm and fun as we explore life’s curiosities through weekly interviews and listener input sure to inform, engage and entertain.”
