In recent years, there are more and more variety shows, and the quality is getting higher and higher. In particular, we have learned and absorbed the characteristics of many excellent variety shows from foreign countries and Taiwan, and formed the program effect with local characteristics in China. Personally, I think the variety shows of satellite TV stations have the best effect. When watching variety shows, we usually only care about the funny scenes in them. In fact, it is not difficult to imagine that behind this is a team responsible for content planning, operation, publicity and other behind-the-scenes work. Based on the experience of watching variety shows for many years, this paper summarizes the production methods of variety shows, especially some variety interview shows.

Do your homework before the program, in order to have an in-depth understanding of the entertainers and celebrities on the program: the latest situation, personal fame experience, recent fun, gossip, etc. For different parties, the interview content, methods, and jokes are also different. It's common to start by complimenting the guest to build distance and open up a conversation.


Prepare some classic passages, network phrases, memes, and jokes in advance, such as: Every day, I often ask the beautiful female guests whether they have a boyfriend, if they already have one, they immediately want to invite the next one; There is heaven above, there is XX below; Qian Feng often comes up with some bad jokes.


Each host has its own catchphrase, often repeated classic action Xian brother: Hell, when my laughter stops is when I don't laugh, really can't be Odi: imitate Jay Chou, imitate Jackie Chan, imitate Aaron Kwok and so on
