Hong Kong, 28 Feb - ((Audience always enjoy to watch a comedy)). However, to create a comedy is not an easy job. Lai Man Cheuk, the script writer of 1990s popular entertaining show “Enjoy Yourself Tonight”, shared his experience while he was working at Television Broadcasting Limited (TVB). ((awkward))


“Is that funny?” Lai was being asked for many times in a day by his boss. “I had to create 5 jokes a day. Can you imagine how many jokes I have to create in a year?” Lai said with a bitter smile.


Although there is the monopoly in local TV market, the production of TV drama is still limited. Lai said the Mainland will have more chance to scriptwriter as there is shortage in the market. He pointed that a television drama scriptwriter will usually get HKD 12,000 for each episode, however, even a younger scriptwriter can get RMB 30,000 for each episode, and the chief can even reach RMB 200,000 for each episode. “I would say the mainland is another way for the green scriptwriter to start their career.”


Lai says the society is changing and progressing. TVB is facing competition with the City Telecom Limited (CTI). However, in his point of view, he doesn’t think CTI could win TVB since CTI was attracted 5% of TVB staff only.
