    Re: First you need to have a platform...(79 words)

    First, you need to find a suitable opportunity. I heard that there are some openings for talk show hosts in this city. You also need to see if you can achieve a high rating, which means people like your jokes and performance. You know, talk show hosts are usually part-timers because they have other jobs. If one can't achieve a high rating, I don't think it's sensible to continue. Finally, I think if someone really wants to be a talk show host, he/she has many things to learn. For example, they need to observe and learn from successful talk show hosts and build up a broad repertoire of catchy phrases and snappy jokes, puns and punchlines to use in their show. That would be a good start.
    Is it perfect now? I think so.

    You use the word jokes a couple of times. Are you sure you're talking about a talk show host and not a comedian?

    (I used to tell my poems to audiences at open mic nights. There were a couple of venues we visited regularly.)

    I watched many talk shows recently and I am pretty sure that "jokes" and "talk show host" are the words I'm looking for. Also, they do use "punchline", "puns" etc, like what teechar said in the earlier post. I think teechar understood me exactly.

    Let's wait for his reply.

    Apparently, they have a different idea in China what a talk show host is.
