Entertainment is a broad term that either holds the interest and attention of an audience in a special way or provides enjoyment and joy. It may be a single activity or an idea, but generally is more often than not one of those activities or events which have developed over hundreds of thousands of years specifically for just the very purpose of holding the interest of an attentive audience. The word entertainer was first used by the Romans when referring to skilled singers, painters, and dancers that helped amuse the audiences during popular theatrical performances. Over time the word has developed to include a number of different ideas that help to define an area of entertainment.
Entertaining can be thought of as anything that provides entertainment value for a crowd. One of the best examples that will help illustrate the point is that of video games. Video games are a great way for people to sit down and have a leisurely quiet time while engaging in activities such as war games or strategy games. These types of leisurely activities are a great time to take a break from the rigors of daily life. It is not uncommon for people to sit down in front of their video gaming consoles and enjoy hours upon hours of play time.
Entertaining is often considered to be more than just sitting around the television and enjoying the programming. Many forms of entertainment can also be considered to be part of the entertainment industry. Film, music, and theater all fall into this category of Entertainement. Film is probably the most well-known type of Entertainement because it is almost universally accepted and enjoyed.
Music has developed into an important element of the entertainment world. With the invention of the home entertainment DVD player and portable media players came the production of music videos. Music videos act as a means for artists and bands to promote themselves and their music. These videos can be entertaining as well as informative about the groups and artists who are performing. In fact, many of today’s leading and emerging bands have been successful in the creation of a full length music video. As Entertainement becomes more of a part of the entertainment industry and more artists and bands try to market themselves through Entertainement, the artistic elements of the industry are sure to increase.
Another facet of Entertainement is found with video games. Video games are a form of Entertainement because they allow players to immerse themselves in an environment where they can use technology to “immersion” and have an adventure. Many video games also require players to “think” while they are playing the game, in other words, they require players to think strategically and creatively in order to beat challenges and earn points. Entertaining in this manner is important because it allows players to have a chance to express their creativity in a positive and creative manner. Video games also provide an avenue for social interaction between players. As technology advances and more sophisticated systems come into play, the entertainment industry will become even more dynamic, allowing more innovations and forms of Entertainement to take place.
Entertaining can take on many forms and there are many ways that entertainers can advertise themselves and their art. Magicians are a great example of how Entertainement can take place outside of the traditional forms of entertainment. There are many great ways to entertain oneself and one of those ways is by attending sporting events and other various forms of Entertainement. By taking part in entertainment at sporting events and other venues around town and throughout the country, a person can not only have a great time, but also show off their own form of Entertainement.
