Entertaiment is a form of entertainment that may involve social, cultural or recreational activity. It can be anything from a simple private event to a large, elaborate, expensive performance or party that is intended for a wide audience. It can also be a means of achieving insight or intellectual growth. Many forms of entertainment are designed to elicit fun, laughter or even serious emotions in their audience. They are usually performed or staged to create a visual, audio or dramatic effect. They are often broadcast on television or other media. In the modern world, entertainment is increasingly a global phenomenon with an increasing capacity for creative remix.
