Entertainment could be an idea or a task, but it's more likely to be
one of the activities or events that have evolved over thousands of
years specifically to keep an audience's attention.
Although different things hold people's attention, and because
people have different tastes in it, most forms are recognisable and familiar.
Storytelling, music, drama, dance, and other forms of performance
exist in all cultures, were supportedd in royal courts, evolved into
sophisticated forms, and became available to all citizens over time.
In recent times, the process has been hastened by an entertainment
industry that records and distributes entertainment items.
It evolves and can be tailoredd to any scale, from an individual selecting
private entertainment from a now vast array of pre-recorded products;
to a banquet adapted for two; to any size or type of party, with appropriate
music and dance; and to performances intended for thousands; and even
for a global audience.
