Entertainment is a broad form of human activity, which holds the interest and attention of an audience or provides entertainment and joy. It may be a commercial idea or a social activity, but is much more likely to be a single activity or event which has developed over hundreds of years primarily for the sole purpose of holding the attention of an attentive audience. It is an art, and people involved in Entertainments are called entertainers. Entertainers can be stand up comedians, musicians, actors or any other type of Entertainer.
Entertainers and their abilities have evolved throughout time with the evolution of entertainment itself. The first Entertainers were stage performers who put on shows for theatrical purposes to amuse paying audiences. The increasing demand for more elaborate and realistic Entertainers led to the discovery of such talents as juggling and the appearance of various animals at circuses.
In the early nineteenth century, Thomas Edison became interested in producing a device that could duplicate the effects of a singing Entertainer. The result was the electric telegraph, which could send recorded music to an assembled audience. The beginnings of radio entertainment were touched off by the success of whistling to amuse a crowd at a popular ball. Improvements in the telephone and electric telegraph helped change the way entertainment could be delivered to an audience. Improvements in entertainment methods allowed the creation of Broadway, which showcased some of America’s best performing artists at one time.
Entertainers have come a long way since the early days of Entertainers. Many of today’s entertainers have their roots in the history of entertainment. Actors such as Elvis Presley and Whoopi Goldberg have made Entertainer a large part of their lives. Other entertainment acts and singers like David Bowie have added Entertainer to their musical resume. Entertainers have made their mark on popular television shows like The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live.
There are many aspects of Entertainer that will make the public excited. The variety of entertainment available, as well as the fact that there is no limit to how many people can come and watch, make Entertainer the ideal form of entertainment. Many new artists have recorded their music using Entertainer sets. Many theaters use Entertainer to break out the musical numbers when the house lights are turned down low or when they want to add an extra layer to their presentation of a play, movie, or other theatrical presentation.
Some of the most notable entertainers who used Entertainer as a stage name were: Grease, The Munsters, and Cheap Trick. Many of these acts became instant successes because of their ability to make their audiences smile and laugh. These entertainers had the advantage of knowing how to work a crowd and found the formula that worked. Today Entertainer is an integral part of many American traditions and has helped to keep many of those traditions going. It is an important part of our history that has, over time, become a part of many of our everyday traditions and customs.
