Stage fright. We’ve had it at some point in our lives, usually when we’ve had to get up in front of an audience and wow them on the spot. But would that stage fright be worse or lessened if you didn’t have all day, week, or month to worry about it beforehand? That’s the interesting question our friends at Heineken set out to address when they tested the courage of a handful of amateur Irish performers by inviting them to what they THOUGHT was an intimate casting to showcase their unique talent. Ha! No way.

Instead, they were unceremoniously dropped onto a stage in front of a packed live audience and given the opportunity to either perform or run for the exits. The results are captivating. Dutch courage? Try Irish courage. Watch on and be amazed as some new Irish legends are well and truly born.
