What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a rich and complex area of human creativity. It has evolved into a broad set of activities that can be tailored to any scale or form. It can be a private entertainment selected from a huge variety of pre-recorded products; it can be an intimate performance for two; it can be a banquet that provides a feast for the senses; it can be a public event or spectacle that serves to entertain thousands.
