Jimmy Fallon Has a New Show and a New Health Regimen

The new Late Night host talks about being funny, being fit, and dealing with stage fright.

Dealing with stage fright continued...

Before taking the stage: If you're prone to sweating it out, be prepared: Dress in loose-fitting garments or a sleeveless shirt to prevent this particular symptom from going public.

Practice deep breathing (inhaling slowly through the nose, exhaling through the mouth) before your presentation. And, most important, prep yourself for success even if you should panic. In other words, give yourself permission to experience a quivering voice or butterflies in your stomach. "It's a bit of a mind game with yourself," says Witt, "but it can work. When these symptoms appear during your speech, you've already mentally prepared yourself for them, so you simply plow through. And the symptoms lessen as you relax."

While on stage: Dry mouth is a common symptom of stage fright. Bring a glass of water with you to the podium whenever possible. Also, volume makes a difference in how your audience reacts to you. You might consider skipping a microphone because speakers who go without are forced to project loudly, which requires deeper breathing. As a result, you relax much sooner. (If you do use a microphone, be conscious of breathing slowly and deeply.) If your hands are shaking, remember: Few in the audience will notice. Simply fold them, hide them behind your back, or place them on the podium.

After your performance: Listen to feedback of your presentation. "If your audience praised you afterward, or if they laughed a lot during it, you know you've done a good job," says Witt, "and you realize your fears were irrational. This will help prepare you for the next time you have to do it."

Fallon's LASIK surgery

Fallon is nothing short of serious when it comes to doing whatever it takes to ensure the success of his new venture. He even got LASIK. "Yeah, the vision thing has been a problem for years," he admits. "I can only see up-close, so I decided to go for it." And? "It's worked out great!"

What about contact lenses? WebMD theMagazine asks the comedian. Or even glasses?
