About Entertaiment

Entertaining is something that takes you away from your everyday life for a short time and gives you pleasure, makes you forget all your troubles. It can be anything from a piece of music or a play to a film or even a video game. Entertainment can also be a form of art, such as poetry or a novel. It can also be a way to amuse, such as by laughing at a comedian at a comedy club. It can be used on any scale – from a personal selection of entertainment available from a wide choice of pre-recorded products; to banquets for two; to performances that are intended for thousands. It can even be used on a grand scale, as for example when the story of Scheherazade from Persian professional storytelling tradition was retold in the musical works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; in films by Pasolini and others; and in innovative video games.
