What is Entertaiment?


The clown at a birthday party, the Broadway show, your friends fighting over the last potato chip-all of these are forms of entertainment. From the French word entretenir (to hold together), entertainment is all about amusement and distraction. It can involve a performance-theatrical entertainment or shows, visual entertainment such as art or movies, or audio entertainment like music and games. The story of Scheherazade, for example, was a form of entertainment in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, and inspired Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel to write orchestral works and Pasolini to make a film, among many others.
