Trying to be funny all the time kills creativity.
You'll never be great if you're trying to be funny all of the time.
If someone is constantly thinking about how to win the funny game, they stop taking the risks to be truly great. They never try anything new. They start seeing their co-stars as enemies, because they think that only one person can "win".
Obsessing about being funny is like a memory leak. It slowly consumes all of your memory, and soon you’ll have nothing left to do your best work.
Pause. Notice the want to win.
