Entertaiment is the act of entertaining or something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement. It can also be the activity of keeping or tending to guests. A clown at a birthday party, a Broadway show, a stadium rock concert, or your friends fighting over the last potato chip are all forms of entertainment.
The word entertainment is often abbreviated to entmt, especially on fliers, in industry news publications, or in short hand note taking. However, it is rarely used in general conversation.
Entertainment evolves and can be adapted to any scale, from personal entertainment to global events. It also has the ability to inspire retellings in other media such as music (Scheherazade, for example) and film or even innovative video games.
