Types of Entertaining
Entertainment is a broad term that encompasses a wide variety of activities that holds an entertained audience’s interest and/or provides enjoyment and gratification. It can either be an individual activity or an act, but more often than not is more often one of a combination of the two, especially events or the whole idea of entertaining. Entertainment can take many forms but the basic premise behind it is always the same; keep the audience entertained and keep them happy!
Entertainers are generally categorized into two categories, the actors and the entertainers. Actors can be divided into three sub-divisions: the stage entertainers, the TV entertainers, and the film and television stars. Stage entertainers are performers that appear on stage in front of an ensemble of musicians, dancers or the like. The other sub-divisions are movie and TV stars, which essentially are actors who star in their own movies or series of films and TV stars that star in a TV show. Film and TV actors can also star in a film or series of films directed by another actor or actress, where the first performer will generally take the role that was previously held by their co-actor until there is enough time to get around to replacing them. And finally, actors who appear in films, commercials, animation or cartoons are known as entertainment actors.
When it comes to the subject of entertainment value, there are hundreds upon hundreds of different types of events, programs and venues that provide entertainment. But when it comes to entertainment for sporting events, the different types of entertainments that are used vary. It would be rather difficult to list all of these different types of entertainments. However, some common types of entertainments used at sporting events include: horse racing, ice hockey, ice skating, golf, baseball, soccer, NASCAR, cheerleading, gymnastics, sailing, football, basketball, hockey, boxing, wrestling, motor racing, bicycling, surfing, sailing, skydiving and auto racing.
Gambling: Gambling has long been an integral part of the sport’s culture and most of us have a particular guilty feeling whenever we think about gambling, even if we are not actively involved in it. Gambling is a popular activity for people all over the world and it is a major source of income for many of the athletes, celebrities and sports figures that we follow around. Professional sport leagues are particularly big on the money making opportunities that gambling offers, with ticket sales, merchandise and sponsorship being the norm for many events. You can bet on almost any sport at any time, so it stands to reason that this would appeal to a wide variety of people. This could be considered entertainment for sport but it goes beyond than that.
Music Entertainment: Music is one of the most recognised and popular forms of entertainment. Music can refer to the sound of any type of music, whether that be live musical performances or pieces that we hear on the radio. It can also include the visual aspects of a performance such as the visual presentation of songs and dance. Music can be both a skill and an art, as some can be very difficult to learn and other just come naturally.
Other common forms of entertainment available to us include sports betting, horse racing, ice cream vending machines, food trucks and bars. As you can see there are many different types of entertainments that we can choose from to entertain ourselves while we are at home, away from home or just during downtime. All forms of entertainment can appeal to a number of different types of people and most will offer something for everyone. Sports broadcasting is especially good because it offers a whole range of entertainment for anyone who watches it. Entertainment as an industry is always evolving and it shows no sign of slowing down in the near future.
