Entertainment is an activity that gives people pleasure or satisfaction. This can be through performances of plays, films or television shows; music and games; reading or watching a movie; or through social interaction with others. Entertaiment can be serious or light-hearted, but often has a purpose in addition to bringing pleasure. It can also be a way for people to learn, gain insight or improve their intellectual skills. For example, professional storytellers use stories as an important form of entertainment. These stories can then be told in a variety of different ways, including through the use of musical compositions, film or video games.
