    Catherine O'Hara feels "too much pressure" performing solo skits

    The 'Schitt's Creek' star admits she feels like she's "showing off" when she performs solo scenes and would rather be with someone else on screen or stage so she can "share the showing off" and doesn't feel all attention is on her


    Speaking to The Guardian newspaper, she shared: "It’s always more fun working with someone you know. I get too nervous doing solo bits – it’s too much pressure and it feels like showing off. With someone else, you can share the showing off. Oh my, what am I going on about?"

    The 66-year-old comedian and writer admits she "forgets" she has a husband and children when she works on a show as she is "completely there" and "works really, really hard".

    She shared: "When I do take a job, I work really, really hard. I forget that I’m a wife, that I have a husband and kids. I’m completely there. I think talents are God-given and it’s your job to take care of them and share them with the right people and ... Blah, blah, blah."

    Catherine admits she has some tough times during the lockdown owing to the coronavirus pandemic but she is trying to remind herself to be grateful for her health.

    Speaking about her time during the coronavirus pandemic, she said: "At one point last week I was feeling grouchy or something. A little disturbed.

    "Every once in a while it hits me ... I don’t see trying to top this. How greedy can one person be? When I was growing up, my mom would say, 'Every day, just be thankful for your health. Get up and be grateful that you’re awake. You’re here for another day.'"
