What is Entertaiment?

The art of enthralling others. Performing arts that are based on or use the human body in some way, such as music, theatre and dance. It encompasses any activity that is understood objectively, communicates with an audience, is created by external stimulus, offers pleasure and requires the audience to be passive. According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010) entertainment combines six elements: it is consumer activity, involves objects, is a form of communication, has an aesthetic effect, entertains an audience and involves a passive experience.

A man whose work is to amuse people who watch his show on television is an entertainer.
