Dealing With Panic Attack

Shecky was very open about his personal and work life. He had a promising career, but his life was entirely in turmoil. 

He had opened up about dealing with panic attacks in an interview, which was a difficult time of his life. 

The panic attacks were caused by his drug addiction, which caused lots of emotional breakdowns. 

He was at a susceptible emotional stage and often tried to avoid the outer world. 

Thankfully, his wife Marie was there to help him get out of bed and into the world. 

According to his wife, Shecky didn’t like being socially available and would leave the places that were too dark or too light for him. 

She prepared herself to be ready at any time because Shecky could have a panic attack at anytime time.

Shecky Got Fired 

Shecky was one of the best comedy performers in the 60s and 70s. 

It took him many years to get himself on the stage and perform well because he had stage fright. 

There were times when he wanted to leave stage act because of stage fright, but as he was making good money, which helped with his livelihood, he couldn’t. 

He also got into alcohol addiction, which harmed his career a lot. 

He misbehaved and got himself into heated conversations under the influence of alcohol, which got him fired from the places where he goes to perform. 

Despite everything, his career didn’t slip out of his hand, all because of his talent. 

He was one of the best performers, which made the people rehire again.

Shecky Preferred Old Las Vegas

Shecky gave an interview to Jerry Lewis Show where he compared the old Las Vegas with the new one. 

He came to Las Vegas in 1953 and enjoyed doing acts there. 

Also, he said that the crime rate at that time was nothing compared to now. 

When he was in Las Vegas, he thought of buying a property over there, but at the time, the city was not so developed, so his manager told him that it was a ghost city and not to invest in property over there. 

However, he regretted that decision because, within a few years, the city grew much more significant than before. 

It was beyond Shecky’s expectations, but for him, the old Las Vegas would always be the best, and he had a special place in his heart for old Las Vegas that was full of memories.
