“Writ(e-use progressive ending) 5 jokes a day is easy but writ(e-progressive ending) 1200 jokes a year is a hard task,” said Lai Man Cheuk, a humor scriptwriter, when giving a talk at Hong Kong Shue Yan University today. (good opening)


Lai was the scriptwriter of Enjoy Yourself Tonight (E-Y-T), which was a popular variety show produced by TVB. The show lasted 27 years from 1967 to 1994. It was one of the world's longest running live-shows. Lai has joined TVB since 1977 and was required to create jokes for E-Y-T.


“Once I heard that requirement, I laughed on the sly because I think it is a really easy job. However, I found that my creativity (add to be in past tense) exhausted very soon. I want(past tense) to cry then,” said Lai.


Lai’s career in TVB was lasted 7 years. He described the job as “a big challenge” for him. He pointed out that sometimes he knows his effort might be wasted but he still has to do his task.


“No matter how hard you were, you (are?) fail if you couldn’t make people laugh,” said Lai.
