What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad and complex concept, and one that has evolved over the centuries to encompass any activity that provides diversion or amusement, whether for a single individual who selects from a vast array of pre-recorded entertainment products, to a dinner party that can be adapted to any size of group, or a public spectacle that can reach an audience on any scale. Many forms of entertainment also have a more serious purpose, such as ceremonial, religious or political festival or satire.
