What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an activity that entertains or diverts people from their daily lives, providing pleasure or enjoyment. Entertainment may be a social occasion, such as a party, or an individual activity, such as watching a movie. It can also be an escapist pursuit, such as visiting theme parks or casinos. Alternatively, it may be used for a more serious purpose, such as ceremonies, religious festivals, or political satire.

According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010), entertainment can be defined as an activity that is understood objectively, involves communication between text and audience, requires external stimulus, offers pleasure, and takes place in a passive form.
