Writer and performer David Jahn’s one-man exploration delves into the chaos that irrational fear can create in our lives. David presents us with a hilarious, poignant and inspiring glimpse inside this chaos. On the journey, we meet the colorful characters that contributed to his downward spiral into a world where fear ruled and life had become about merely being alive instead of living.

DO YOU FEAR WHAT I FEAR? debuted at the Groundlings Theatre in 2004 and played to sold-out houses.  It was last performed as part of the Groundlings 30th anniversary series of special performances in January of 2005.

_“Fear is just a misperception of reality”. Upon hearing that quote, I was hooked.  I had lived the majority of my life in paralyzing fear, and was now determined to learn why – and how to put an end to it.  For me, there are two kinds of fear – learned and natural.  While driving, I would notice those No Fear stickers donning numerous pick-up truck windows and think, Yeah right.  No fear, my ass.  In fact, NO FEAR, MY ASS was the original title of the show.  Four years later, I had completed DO YOU FEAR WHAT I FEAR? but was afraid to do it.  Perhaps that was the point.  Feel the fear and do it anyway.  Perhaps others had similar stories and could relate.”  – David Jahn , writer/performer
