What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is any activity aimed at providing pleasure, diversion or amusement. It varies widely and can include everything from watching movies or going to concerts to playing games or socializing with friends. Entertainment often has a lighthearted or humorous element, but can also be serious and have a moral or political message.

Entertaiment has been defined by Bates and Ferri (2010) as an activity understood objectively, involves communication with an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience to exist, and takes place in a passive form.
