HONG KONG, 28 Feb- “Enjoy Yourself Tonight”, a long-lasting variety show, had achieved great success since its first broadcast in 1967. “I was asked to think of five jokes every day for the show. It was not easy at all,” Lai Man Cheuk, a famous scriptwriter, said today.

Lai (recalled his memory-use another description, as this one is misleading) at Hong Kong Shue Yan University today afternoon. “I was required to create five jokes every day for the show. It was not an easy task. Every year, you should have 1,200 jokes written, and I had done this job for seven years,” he said.


“Sometimes, your effort might be wasted. No matter how hard (you were-or worked?), if you could not make others laugh, you suffered failure,” Lai said. “I always laughed in front of others but cried alone. Every time others asked me what the point of laughing was, I could find no place to hide myself for shame. My pillow got wet,” he added.


For Lai, the job was challenging. Yet, he benefited greatly from it. “I am now quick-witted as “Enjoy Yourself Tonight” provided me with good training. I was not born to be creative,” he deems that training is important for production.


“I do not think that young people of today are poor. Our society is improving, and they are as well,” Lai encouraged the next generation not to give up but to show their talents.
