Entertaiment is entertainment, play or amusement. It may have a serious or even moral purpose, such as satire or ceremonial performances, but it is mostly associated with fun and laughter. It can be a personal activity, such as watching a movie or playing video games; it can be part of a party, banquet, wedding, funeral or religious festival; or it can be a sport or competition with an audience. Activities once used for survival or defence can be transformed into spectator sports, and performances such as a game of fencing or archery can be recorded on television and broadcast to audiences worldwide.
When writing an article on entertaiment, it is important to be careful not to defame people’s reputations or engage in libel. It is usually best to use biographical information from authorized biographies and focus on positive aspects of a person’s life, such as humanitarian issues that they are involved in. This will help ensure that the article is enjoyable and readable for all readers. The story of Scheherazade, from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, has been retold in many different media, including orchestral music by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, a film by Pasolini and innovative computer games.
