What is Entertainment?


Entertainment is a broad concept, embracing many forms of enjoyment and amusement. It can be as small as an individual choosing a personal entertainment from a now enormous array of pre-recorded products; to a banquet adapted for two; to performances intended for thousands. Often the entertainment has a serious purpose, whether in the form of ceremonies, festivals, or even satire. Click on a collocation to see more examples.
