Entertainment is the act of entertaining or the occupation or amusement that results from it. Entertainment can take many forms, including a diverting activity such as solving the daily crossword or a theatrical or musical performance. It can also be an experience, such as a vacation or reading a book. It may even be the process of learning or the enjoyment of intellectual growth, such as studying history or reading literature. What appears as entertainment to one individual or group may be regarded as work or cruelty by another.
According to Bates and Ferri (2010), entertainment can be defi ned as activity understood objectively that communicates between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience and occurs in a passive form.
