What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is amusement, usually involving a performance. A clown at a child’s birthday party, a Broadway show, a stadium rock concert, your friends fighting over the last potato chip-all of these are entertainment. The word comes from the French entretenir, meaning “to hold together.” It has evolved to include all manner of performances and events and has a broad scope that can be adapted for any size audience or occasion. The examples in this collection range from slapstick humor to satire to art.
