When we’re kids, I think we all think at least once “I want to sing” or “I want to act” or something to that effect. Your mom tells you you’re good at singing, your friends tell you you’re funny, something always sets off that initial spark. But do you know why not everyone can become an entertainer? It’s not a lack of talent. There’s lots of talented people out there, there wouldn’t be so many singing and dancing shows if there weren’t. No, the real barrier to show business? In a word, volume. Content, I mean, not decibels.

Consider this: a sitcom airs a new episode every week for, let’s say, 30 episodes worth. You know what that means? It means that the moment one episode is done filming, you gotta move right on to the next one with little-to-no downtime. Nonstop, rapid-fire acting, writing, directing, whatever. A lot of stuff is usually filmed in advance, but you can’t always do that. Sometimes the network mandates a last-minute change to casting or a script. You barely have time for a life when you need to be on set at 5 AM.

This is why not everyone can be an entertainer. To have a regular production in this day and age, you need to have nerves of steel. So let’s take a minute to appreciate those who have dedicated their lives to entertaining us, because more often than not, it takes their entire lives to do so.
