I suffer from a stutter. Normally, it is under control, and most people don't really notice it (but I do). When I am nervous, my stutter becomes more prounounced. This is one reason why I choose to do most of my magic to music. It is also one reason why close-up terrifies me so much. The few times I have done close up magic, you guessed it, my stutter became quite pronounced! This is one reason why I have never auditioned for community theater stuff. It is also one reason why I failed one certification exam...the reviewers thought my posture was "too militaristic" and that I "stammered" when I voiced.
I was intrigued by the movie "The King's Speech". I only watched it recently, then I read the book....written by Logue's grandson. It was an inspiration! Granted, I have never been to therapy or anything for my stutter (because growing up I never talked so my parents never knew I had a problem), but King George VI is someone to be admired for overcoming is deficiency!
