Lai Man Cheuk, experienced local comedian and scriptwriter who worked for 60s-90s popular TVB variety show “Enjoy Yourself Tonight” (EYT), shared his experience on creative work. “Telling jokes for your job is tormenting, but it did train up your mind,” he said.

Enjoy Yourself Tonight was the longest local running live-shows which made its first broadcast on TVB in 1967, and included singing, dancing, short dramas and variety show games that interacted with the audiences. The pioneering variety show instantly drew legendary large popularity of audience throughout 60s to 90s.

During his past seven years working in TVB, Wong said the life of being a comedy-writer is like living in hell, in terms of the workload and the pressure behind. “Assume that you have to create 10 jokes per day, you have to create 70 jokes per week, 280 jokes per month and 3360 jokes every year. The number is scary.”

Wong said, telling jokes for work is not as funny as imagined in such a fast-pace industrial-like workplace, especially when you face various pressure and frustrations from work. “There are only two reactions from audiences: Funny or not. Their responses are sharp and cruel, but you have to beat your brain on them.”

He said, Comedy writers are often pushed to the edges, “Sometimes the pressure drives us crazy, but we can only weep on the pillow at night, and shed your tears, get back to work on the next day.” However, he gave credits to the days in TVB, “Telling jokes for all these years might not made me more humorous, but the past experience did raise my creativity and agility of mind.”
