Whether it’s the clown at your child’s birthday party, a Broadway show, or a stadium rock concert-or even your friends fighting over the last potato chip-entertaiment is that thing which distracts you from life’s troubles and leaves you in a euphoric state of bliss. It comes from the old French entretenement (to entertain) and is associated with hospitality-keeping your guests happy and amused. It is often a performance, but it can also be an idea, visual art, or music.
