Entertaiment is a broad category of activity that includes everything from solving a crossword puzzle to attending a concert. It can be a private entertainment chosen from an enormous range of pre-recorded products; a banquet designed for two; a party organized and staged for many people; or an event intended for a global audience. Entertainment evolves and can be tailored to meet specific societal needs: for example, skills such as archery or cooking, which were necessary for survival, have developed into sporting events involving professionals and broadcast for entertainment.
