What is Entertaiment?
Entertaiment can be an enjoyable way to pass time. It can include art, sports, games, and even visiting a theme park. It can also be used as a tool for relaxation and stress relief.
It is a fun way to interact with others and get free publicity for a business. For example, a car dealership may hire a celebrity to perform at their grand opening.
The entertainment industry has demonstrated a remarkable ability to cross over different media. For instance, the story of Scheherazade has been told as an orchestral piece by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; it has been adapted into several films and innovative video games have been created based on her tales. According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010), entertainment is understood objectively, involves communication between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience, and occurs in a passive form.
