What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad category of leisure activities and events intended to amuse, relax or divert individuals from their daily lives by temporarily removing them from mundane realities or their usual social contexts. It can take many forms, from a film watched in the privacy of one’s home to a banquet that is designed for two; from an individualized activity that may be a result of technological innovation to performances that are designed for a large audience. Entertainment is a cultural phenomenon and has demonstrated a remarkable capacity for cross-over across different media, with enduring themes and imagery that persist over time.
