Entertainers have been around since the dawn of recorded history. From caveman days to stage performers and MCs today, entertainment has always been an integral part of human culture. Entertainment is actually a broad category of human activity which holds the interest and attention of an audience either through visual means or some sort of action. It may be a solitary project or an idea, but is most often more often one of a group of activities or events which have evolved over the centuries specifically for the sole purpose of holding an audience’s interest.
Entertainers provide entertainment at every level. Some perform arts to amuse and distract while others offer performances as a vent for pent-up emotions. The performing arts and the entertainment industry are one and the same thing. There is even a sub-genre of entertainment known as mass media entertainment. This sub-genre of entertainment often incorporates elements of art and/or the performing arts into the overall package.
The entertainment industry in general can loosely be categorized into two main parts. The first main category is the theatre. The other main category is the mass media entertainment industry such as movies, music, advertising, and theatre. The performing arts can sometimes overlap with other forms of theatre. In the modern age, the performing arts are often considered to be its own separate art form.
Musical Theatre, dance, and drama are the three main components of the performing arts. There are a few other types of live entertainment. For example, clowns, jugglers, illusionists, and comedians can all qualify as live entertainment. Music is another form of live entertainment. This type of live entertainment tends to include acts who have a wide range of musical talents and skills.
Theme parks and amusement parks also offer live entertainment. Theme parks like Sea World, Universal Studios, and even Disney have become very popular locations for live entertainment events. Theme parks often include acts who perform stunts, comedy skits, or musical theatre.
Live entertainment has been an important part of our society for centuries. Today, live entertainment is still an integral part of many people’s lives. From travelling theatre companies to amusement parks to theme parks, the live entertainment industry continues to grow.
Entertainers are not only used in live entertainment but also in film, TV, and video games. Actors such as Jack Nicholson, Whoopi Goldberg, and Meryl Streep have all gained international notoriety because of their live entertainment performances. Although the performing arts have changed dramatically throughout the years, there are some things that never change. Entertainment is something that will always be popular.
When it comes to live entertainment, trends tend to come and go. For example, back in the 1960’s rock and roll was very popular. Nowadays, alternative forms of entertainment such as video games and internet based games have taken over. However, one thing that will always be around is entertainment. Whether it is theatre, music, movies, television, or video games, entertainment will always be around.
