Entertaiment is amusement, usually involving a performance. The clown at your child’s birthday party, a Broadway show, a stadium rock concert, your friends fighting over the last potato chip—all are entertainment. Entertainment has evolved from the earliest forms of hospitality, food, and sport into performances among professionals or as spectator sports, and into media for an international audience. While it may appear superficial, the entertainment experience can be important for an individual or community and can lead to learning or emotional growth.
