Entertaiment: An amusement or distraction, often involving a performance. The clown at a birthday party, the Broadway show, the stadium rock concert, your friends fighting over the last potato chip—these are all forms of entertainment. It’s often difficult to define, but we usually talk about theatrical entertainment as shows, visual entertainment as stuff you like to look at, and audio entertainment as mostly music.
