What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad genre with many subcategories, each with its own unique characteristics and styles. It has evolved to adapt to the individual taste and needs of a specific audience or group. It can range from a single person selecting personal entertainment from a wide variety of pre-recorded options, to a party with bespoke music and dance; to a full theatrical performance for a large public.

Note: Some entertainments may be viewed as inappropriate, unwholesome or even cruel. This is not necessarily the intention of this site. The word “entertainment” derives from the Medieval Latin intertenere (from the prefix inter meaning “inside” and the suffix tenere). The original meaning was more like maintaining or keeping up.
