What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a form of cultural and social activity that is consumed for enjoyment. It can include any activity that involves an external stimulus, provides pleasure, requires an audience and takes place in a passive format. According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010), entertainment is understood objectively, communicates between text and audience, involves an aesthetic effect, offers pleasure and is passive.

In a world that is constantly busy chasing a promotion or higher salary, it is important to take time out and enjoy entertainment. It helps us relax and forget about the stresses of life for a while, making it easier to deal with them when they return.
