For the last 7 years I've been experimenting with the college market. Took my camera with me to document what its like to be a traveling performer for college campuses.
Here's a quick vid I put together from my recent tour. Sometimes you get to perform at a huge state of the art auditorium, sometimes it is at a student ballroom, sometimes it is an activity room adjacent to the dining hall. To draw a crowd to your show, its also recommended that you do some quick close-up magic at dining halls prior to promote your show.

The shows are always fun, but everything else that comes along with it is def. a hard grind.

I like that your performances are very lively and natural, everyone laughs. It's really very interesting to watch, thanks.

I would also very much like to know how to communicate with the public, but I am very shy. Although I studied at a psychologist, I wrote a lot of research papers with the help of thesis statement generator https://edubirdie.com/thesis-statement-generator, and with their help I prepared for speech, but I was too nervous. Maybe you have some secrets, how not to be afraid of the public?

Hey Sthyd. Thank you for writing.
Though I'm no expert in public speaking, I can only share my experience with you.
You are right, that there are ways to practice to not be afraid of public speaking.

To give you an example, when I first moved to the US, I was 14 years old and was terrified to stand in front of a classroom of 10 people to give a presentation.
here's the good news and bad news: Good news, it can be fixed, confidence can be built.
Bad news: It will take hard work and repetition. The key is positive repetition.
Have you tried something like a toastmasters club? You get to practice speaking in front of people in a supportive environment.
Baby steps, don't worry about trying to put together an hr long show. Try putting together a quick 5 mins act.

Positive repetition is the key. Experience will overcome stage fright.
I remember my first ever stage show, I was nervous as all heck and forgot my lines.
It can only be overcame by facing the fear straight on and try to take it down bit by bit, day at a time, one rehearsal at a time.

Cheers
Don't give up, don't EVER give up.
