Entertaiment is a vast area that includes all forms of art and amusement. It is often aimed at evoking strong emotions, such as joy or anger, but can also be more thought-provoking, like a documentary or puzzle game. Some people enjoy entertainment in a social setting, such as a concert or comedy show, while others prefer solo activities, like reading a book or playing a strategy video game. Entertaiment can take many forms, and is often used to promote products or services, such as a celebrity appearance at a car dealership.
