What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment refers to anything that amuses or distracts, from a clown at a birthday party to a Broadway show or a stadium rock concert. It can also refer to a business that provides entertainment, such as a casino or restaurant. Sometimes the word is abbreviated to entmt. on a flier or in industry news publications when space is limited, but it’s not common in general use.

Those seeking careers in entertainment should keep an eye on other performers for inspiration, both in terms of performance styles and how other businesses are run. But it’s important to develop a style that is uniquely your own.
