CELEBRITY QUOTE: THE MONEY PER MOVIE IS WHAT A STAND-UP COMEDIAN WILL EARN IN ONE OR TWO HOURS--TEJU BABYFACE

The money in acting is not worth it in this part of the world,the money they pay you to appear in a movie is not near what you earn in an afternoon of stand-up comedy.

The money per movie is what a stand-up comedian will earn in one or two hours.Except if they will start paying them N30million for a movie that will last for one month.

For me the input is not equal to the output.The output should be inversely proportional to the input,which means that if I should put in one hour of work I should earn exponentially.

It should not be the other way round,I should not sleep away for a month and when the job comes I will earn meager.I should do a movie and be able to tell myself that I am not going to work again till next one month and still be comfortable.I should be able to do a movie and buy a car,land or house somewhere.I shouldn't have to do like ten movies and I am still at a place.
