Entertaiment is an art of holding the attention and interest of people. It can be done through the media of film and television, music, sports, games, literature and other forms of recreation. It may also involve live performances such as theater, dance or comedy shows and the creation of visual arts. The word “entertainment” derives from the Medieval Latin inter tenere, from the prefix inter meaning “inside” and ten, from the Indo-European root of stretching or spreading.
