What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment means putting on a show that is enjoyed by people. The term is typically used to refer to movies, music, sports, social events, and other activities that provide pleasure, diversion, or amusement. Entertainment can also act as a form of escape, temporarily taking individuals away from their mundane lives and providing them with enjoyable experiences. Bates and Ferri (2010) define entertainment as an activity understood objectively, that involves communication between text and audience, involves external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires the existence of an audience, and occurs in a passive form. Entertainment often hits on points that the human mind was shaped to deeply react to in order to function in a social world.
