Entertainment is a term that encompasses amusement, usually in the form of a performance. It is the type of activity that keeps us sane, gives us something to look forward to and helps our families bond. A clown at a birthday party, a Broadway show or stadium rock concert; your friends fighting over the last potato chip — all of these activities are examples of Entertaiment. The term itself comes from the Old French word entretenir, which means to hold together or support. These days, it can refer to any activity ranging from a private pleasure to a global audience.
