What Is Entertainment?


Entertainment is a form of recreation that can lighten the mood, displace boredom, or relieve stress. It can take many forms, from a clown at a birthday party to a stadium rock concert. It can also educate, for example, by telling the story of Scheherazade in an orchestral piece by composers like Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, in a film, or through innovative video games.

When working in entertainment, it’s important to watch others perform and see how they do their work, but it’s equally important to develop a style that is uniquely your own. That will set you apart from the crowd and help you build a following. From the Old French entretenement. Also see entertain, play and entrainment..
