A multifaceted concept, entertaiment can include everything from a kid’s playground or a comedy show to a fine art exhibition or jazz concert. It may provide a temporary escape into the world of joy or suspense, or it may serve as an emotional cleansing experience through catharsis, or it can challenge and engage the mind, such as through puzzles, strategy games, or documentaries. Entertainment also varies from person to person, with some preferring lighthearted fare and others gravitating toward more serious or cerebral entertainment.
