What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the broad category of activities involving entertainment, or amusement. It may be derived from many different sources, and can range from activities such as games or sports to dramatic performances or ceremonies, or even satire and slapstick. While the notion of entertainment is commonly understood as a source of amusement, entertainment can also serve more serious purposes, such as education or social commentary.

Entertainment has evolved and can be adapted to any scale, from an individual who chooses private entertainment on a now enormous variety of pre-recorded products, to a banquet adapted for two people, to performances intended for thousands of spectators, or even a global audience.
