What is Entertaiment?


The clown at a birthday party, a Broadway show, your friends fighting over the last potato chip—these are all forms of Entertaiment. Derived from the French word for entertaining guests, it has become a general term for amusement and distraction, whether in the form of a theatrical performance or a television show. Entertainment can be adapted to any size or scale: from private, personal amusements; to banquets and celebrations; to sports events for thousands of spectators.
