Why is it that when I'm on my own or with a good friend I can come up with witty/ comical ideas and responses, but with strangers I can't?

One thing i've noticed about myself is that whenever i'm alone or comfortable with someone I can blurt out a comical and/or witty remark, but when I'm with a group or with people/ a person I'm not familiar or uncomfortable with I freeze up and/or my remarks come out as dumb..

When I text or write stories I can type or write or say something on the spot without having to think/ or contemplate it.. It just comes out. Is this because I'm insecure..? How do I get over this...? I'd really love to be able to funny and witty to everyone..

    Some people are naturally more shy in presence of more people, in presence of strangers etc.

    I personally underwent years of increasing inability to communicate in group until i finally ended up with full on agoraphobia with proper panic attacks, this is not off-course inevitable trajectory that is merely my own experience.

    I would advise trying to have group of your friends outnumber the strangers see if that helps you?
