What is Entertaiment?



Entertaiment is amusement, usually involving a performance. It can be as small as a clown at a birthday party, or as large as a stadium rock concert. It is entertainment that makes us laugh and distracts us from our daily troubles, but it can also have a serious purpose, as in ritual, ceremony, or religious festivals. It is a cultural activity that transcends generations, and has the potential to cross over into other media.
