What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is an important part of people’s lives. It can provide a respite from the stress of daily life, a social experience and even improve communication skills. It can take many forms: art, music, sports, games, theater and more. It can be as simple as a clown at a child’s birthday party or as complex as a stadium rock concert. These examples are programmatically compiled from various online sources to illustrate current usage of the word “entertainment.” They do not represent the opinions of Merriam-Webster or its editors.
