You should collect and hold all your strength for just 20 seconds, when you are up on stage. Audience cares for you for just 20 secs after that they won't care. Just be strong for 20 secs, and if you pass these 20secs after that you'll not be afraid of anyone sitting out there in the audience. And yeah, try not to look at your friends sitting out there coz they are the ones who will make you nervous by passing comments. :) I am also a shy and quite type of person but on stage i'm just opposite.

I'm a shy introvert but I'm comfortable around people I know well.
