What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the experience of engaging in private recreation or leisure activities that are enjoyable and playful, often with a sense of je ne sais quoi. The experience may be mediated by an audience, as in the case of a play, opera, or television show; or unmediated, as in the case of games. Entertainments evolve and can be adapted to suit any scale: from an individual choosing a private entertainment from the now enormous array of pre-recorded products; to ceremonies, celebrations, or religious festivals; to performances intended for thousands.
