What Is Entertainment?


Entertainment is an activity that diverts attention from everyday stressors and can evoke joy or suspense. It can be as simple as playing with dolls or as complex as attending a rock concert. Entertainment can be shared (as in group sports or video games) or solo (like reading a gripping mystery). People tend to favor entertainment that elicits strong emotional reactions; for example, enjoying a humorous show or watching a drama. Some entertainment also stimulates the mind, such as puzzles or strategic thinking in video games.
