What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is entertainment or distraction in the form of a performance. It may involve a clown at a birthday party, a Broadway show, stadium rock music, or your friends fighting over the last potato chip. The word is often abbreviated to entmt. on fliers or in industry news publications when space is limited. Entertainment can also take the form of a ceremony, celebration, or religious festival, or as satire or an act of cruelty. Some activities, such as hunting or warfare, have become spectator sports, while others, such as cooking, have developed into professional competitions and global television broadcasts. Entertainment can be low-brow or high-brow, and can be created for one person or for a global audience.
