Entertaiment – What Is It?


The clown at your kid’s birthday party, the Broadway show, your friends fighting over a potato chip–all of these are forms of entertainment. Entertaining is a broad concept that encompasses all the activities that keep people amused, diverted, and happy. It is a large industry that includes theatrical, visual, and audio entertainment. From the Old French entretenir, meaning “to hold together” or support, entertaining came to mean keeping people amused and distracted.
