Episode Chronology
"The Siegfried and Roy Fantasy Experience Movie"

"Stage Fright" is the 13th episode of Father of the Pride, directed by John Holmquist and John Stevenson and written by Jonathan Groff.


When Larry gets stage fright during one of Siegfried and Roy's shows, they take him to see Kelsey Grammer, thinking he is a real therapist like his character on Frasier. When Roy ends up talking to Grammer about his childhood problems with his father instead, Grammer's cat secretly steps up to act as Larry's therapist. While talking to the cat, Larry describes the events of the original pilot and his thoughts about them, with relevant scenes from the pilot playing during these sequences (if not slightly altered). In the end, the cat helps him to realize he does like being the star of the show and that he has only been getting "stage fright" because he feels bad about liking it since in becoming the lead, he took the part away from Sarmoti. The next time Siegfried and Roy do a show, Larry accepts his position and feelings about it and no longer has stage fright.
