Entertaiment is anything that provides enjoyment or relaxation to the audience, whether the participants are passive as in watching a movie or playing a game or active as in singing or dancing. Entertainment has the power to transport people from their daily humdrum existences into a world of fantasy and excitement, where they can temporarily escape from their problems and worries and experience pleasurable activities. It also offers a sense of accomplishment and intellectual growth to those who participate in its various forms.
Other meanings of entertaiment include: enter, penetrate, pierce, and probe. See the disambiguation entry for more information.
