Entertaiment is a wide genre of activity, including art, sports, games, movies, and theme parks. These activities are used for pleasure and fun, as a form of distraction, or to enhance self-confidence. These types of activities also provide stress relief and can improve communication skills.
A popular source of entertainment is the story of Scheherazade, which has been told as an opera by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; as a play by Shakespeare; in many novels and films; and as innovative video games. The familiar forms of entertainment have demonstrated a seemingly infinite capacity for creative remix.
Entertaining an audience at an event is a way for companies to attract customers and promote their products. They may use celebrities to attract attention and to create an atmosphere of euphoria.
