So You Think You're a Nervous Wreck was another Joe McDoakes comedy short
10 June 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was a Joe McDoakes short starring George O'Hanlon I just watched as an extra on the A Night in Casablanca DVD. Joe here is indeed as the title implies as he can't speak in public to save his life, can't tell an annoying coworker no when he asks for a donation for a fellow employee, can't ask a female coworker for a date, and can't ask for a raise from his boss. So he goes to a psychiatrist to see if he'll cure him. Well, the doctor does wonders for his self-esteem but if it's for good or not, well, watch this short if you want to find out! Very funny and O'Hanlon really sells all the points this short wants to make. So on that note, I highly recommend So You Think You're a Nervous Wreck.
