Entertaiment is a vast and varied collection of media and experiences that bring people joy, relaxation, or amusement. It can range from a fun restaurant to a live concert, from a children’s cartoon to a Shakespeare play, and from an elaborate dinner party to a worldwide TV show. Entertainment is also a cathartic experience, allowing us to express or process strong emotions safely and in a controlled setting. And it can be intellectually stimulating, whether through documentaries, puzzles, strategy games, or reading a gripping novel.
What is entertaining for one person or group may not be for another, and even the same individual might prefer different forms of entertainment depending on their mood; watching a comedy show when they are feeling down, and a drama when they are introspective.
