What Is Entertaiment?


The word Entertaiment has evolved to encompass any activity that provides pleasure, diversion or amusement, whether as a form of hospitality, recreation, celebration, religious festival or satire. It can take the form of a book, play or movie, dance or sports event, or even an act of cruelty. It can involve an individual selecting private entertainment from a now enormous selection of pre-recorded products, a couple entertaining guests at a dinner party, or performances for a global audience. The familiar themes and images of entertainment have demonstrated the capacity to cross over into various media and remain in circulation for ever longer.
