Entertaiment is a form of entertainment that involves participation in public or private activities. It may be scripted or spontaneous, and can involve the audience’s passive or active role. It can take the form of drama, music, dance, film or games. In addition to providing a pleasurable experience, it can also be used as a way to achieve insight or intellectual growth. A well-known example of this is the Persian professional story of Scheherazade, which is often adapted into other media and is the inspiration for many different forms of entertainment, including music, film and video games.
In addition to being fun, entertainment can provide opportunities for personal growth and help people to develop close relationships with each other.
