What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the activity of entertaining or the state of being entertained. Entertainment can take many forms and be experienced at a variety of scales, from the private entertainment choices made by an individual to a banquet for two; from an intimate social gathering to a performance for thousands or even global audiences. Entertainment evolves and mutates, sometimes from activities used in war or hunting to spectator sports; from traditional professional storytelling to the modern phenomenon of television shows based on storylines from a single source. The power of stories to entertain is demonstrated by the way that a classic like Scheherazade has inspired multiple orchestral works, film adaptations and innovative video games.
