Holly Shaw is an author, stand-up comedian and hypnotherapist who just released her second book, Making Art In the Middle of Madness, a book that has been hailed as a “vital reminder and re-envisioning . . . a beautiful, witty and relevant message for us right now.” (Dan Cantrell, Emmy award winning composer). She’s actively looking for interviews in order to spread the word and hopefully help more people navigate the fear they feel in the middle of this pandemic, the environmental conditions and political upheaval we find ourselves in. Ron Roecker, award winning PR strategist has commended the book: “If you’re a creative in the era of COVID, this book is your survival guide.” Before becoming a coach and hypnotherapist, Shaw has spent a lifetime on film, TV and on stages all over the world as an actor and dancer and stand up comedian. Her first book, The Creative Formula became an Amazon bestseller shortly after it was published in 2016. Now, she’s helped thousands of performing artists, some of them Emmy Award winning and Grammy nominated, overcome bad habits, stage fright, impostor syndrome, and creative blocks so that they can create the work they were born to make and become undeniably magnetic performers. She is a regular teacher at SAG/AFTRA’s conservatories in SF and LA and Host of the award winning, Performers & Creators Lab Podcast.
