Entertaiment is defined as a consumer activity understood objectively, communicating between text and audience from an external stimulus, offering pleasure, requires an audience to exist and takes place in a passive form. It is a form of consumption that can be repeated as well as creatively remixed. Its forms and themes are familiar to most people and provide continuity and longevity in cultural expression.
Entertaining can be adapted to fit the scale of an individual selecting from a vast array of pre-recorded products; to a couple enjoying a meal in the company of friends or family; to a banquet adapted for two or more; to performances intended for thousands. The experience is usually light-hearted and enjoyable, but entertainment may also have a serious purpose such as the many forms of ceremony, celebration or religious festival.
